National healthcare and hospitality linen services provider, ImageFIRST, expands laundry delivery and processing capabilities in Nevada with latest acquisition.
KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa., August 30, 2023 – ImageFIRST®, the leading national provider of linen, laundry, and safety & hygiene services to the healthcare sector, with a hospitality division serving select markets, announced it has completed its acquisition of Nevada Linen Supply in June 2023. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
Nevada Linen Supply was founded in 1986 and provides laundry & linen, uniforms, and various other rental textiles to healthcare, hospitality, food & beverage, and special event services customers. Nevada Linen serves the greater Las Vegas and surrounding areas, such as Pahrump, NV, and Boulder City, NV.
“When I decided to sell, I was adamant in locating an organization that shares my company’s culture relating to customers and associates, and ImageFIRST more than achieved this goal,” says founder and former owner Steve Stith, Sr. “I have no doubt that this combination will strengthen the organization and add value to our associates and customers.”
This transaction enables ImageFIRST to expand its service area in Nevada, creating more job opportunities in the region. Existing customers of Nevada Linen Supply will now be serviced by ImageFIRST, and existing associates will be retained.
“This process was a strategic acquisition and we’re enthusiastic about bringing this extraordinary company and their team into the ImageFIRST family,” said ImageFIRST President and CEO, Jim Cashman. “The way that we service our customers are very similar and this will guarantee a seamless integration into ImageFIRST.”
This expansion has led to ImageFIRST becoming the largest national linen and laundry provider specializing in the healthcare industry. Recent acquisitions include Island Fox Inc. d/b/a Health Ware of WNY and United Linen & Uniform Services (Okla.).
