The 127 year old family owned and operated linen cleaning company, which has operations nationwide, moved its Washington, D.C. operation to Prince George's County bringing with it 250 jobs.
"My mother always told me to never talk about the family's dirty laundry. But today, I'm going to break that rule," said Coleman. "I want to connect Alsco to all of the dirty laundry in Prince George's County and the State of Maryland while this wonderful company is growing. I want to double the size of their workforce from 250 to 500 over the next 24 months."
Alsco Inc., a linen and uniform rental services company, celebrated its official grand opening Tuesday with a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony, lunch and tours of its new facility in Lanham, MD. The production facility cleans over 125,000 pounds of laundry daily serving over 1,600 customers. The environmentally friendly facility currently has 225 employees and is recruiting 25 more, bringing a total of 250 jobs to Prince George's County.
Alsco General Manager Ludovico Oriente hosted the event at which guests had an opportunity to meet Co-CEOs, Bob Steiner and Kevin Steiner, whose great-grandfather founded the company in 1889. Attendees also heard from Prince George's dignitaries including Secretary Mike Gill from the Maryland Department of Commerce and Delegate Alonzo Washington, from Maryland Legislative District 22.
