It’s not often a company reaches the impressive milestone of operating for a century, but here at WW Uniform Service, we are excited to celebrate our 100 years in business next year! As we wrap up our 99th year in business and eagerly look ahead to celebrating our centennial in 2024, we are filled with gratitude for the communities and customers who have supported our family-owned company across three generations. Even after all this time, it’s still the difference in the details that set us apart.
From Humble Beginnings to Industry Leaders
Our story began in 1924 as a small laundry provider, and by 1948, we expanded our services to include dry cleaning. A pivotal moment unfolded in 1973 when we began providing uniform rentals to local businesses – a division of WW that quickly became a key part of our operations and set us on a path of accelerated growth.
As the chapters unfolded, our family-run company has evolved and diversified to meet and exceed customer’s expectations. We included facility services and custom branded apparel options, so we can confidently supply our customers with their requirements. We consistently embrace technology as we grow through the years, such as our RFID tracking, which allows us to guarantee accurate deliveries. This year, we proudly introduced WW First Aid, solidifying our position as the ultimate one-stop solution for all facility needs.
A Century of Adaptability, Growth, and Community
How have we thrived for a century? The answer lies in our ability to adapt. Our constant pursuit of meeting and exceeding our customers’ expectations has been the driving force behind our sustained growth. As industries have evolved, so have we, aligning our strategies with the ever-changing landscape of customer needs.
Our journey has not been solitary, we’ve actively engaged with industry associations such as:
- Dry Cleaning & Laundry Institute
- Apparel Services Network
- Better Business Bureau
- Quinnipiac Chamber of Commerce
- Midstate Chamber of Commerce
These affiliations guide our commitment to not just meet but exceed industry standards, ensuring that our customers receive nothing short of excellence.
Ready to Launch into Our Next Hundred Years
As we wrap up 99 years of business, the fact that we stand tall as a family-owned operation is a testament to the hard work of our team and the loyalty of customers. One of the keys to our longevity has been the ability to adapt – whether it was adding new services or realigning operations to prioritize customer needs. As we enter our centennial year, with no plans of slowing down, we do so with immense gratitude for those we serve and a continued commitment to evolve along with their needs for the next century.
