UniFirst is one of the world's largest suppliers of uniforms and protective apparel. The company was established in the 1930s as a family-owned laundry business and has since greatly expanded the scope of its operations to include the design, manufacture, sale, rental and cleaning of a comprehensive range of workwear garments. Despite continued economic sluggishness and high unemployment rates in North America, UniFirst is cautiously optimistic about its prospects. In particular, the company expects to maintain its position as one of the industry's leaders by virtue of its focus on expansion within existing markets and entry into new geographical areas. The report highlights the company's development, products and services, distribution and manufacturing, corporate sustainability, competition, customer services and financial performance, as well as providing an outlook for the future. This report is vital for anyone involved in the uniform and textile services industry and it serves as an indispensable case study for those who want insight on a market leader in the industry.
