NEW BRUNSWICK – Unitex Textile Rental Services, the fastest growing healthcare laundry company in the United States, recently celebrated the grand opening of its newest facility at 10 Van Dyke Ave New Brunswick. During the event, Unitex executives welcomed New Brunswick leaders and many special guests and talked about how the company’s expansion into the community will help benefit the local job market, and promote green technology in the healthcare sector.
“We wanted to host an event in which we could personally thank everyone instrumental in helping us expand into New Brunswick,” said David Potack, Vice President of Unitex. “The support and commitment from Mayor Cahill, community leaders, and the city of New Brunswick was key in making our grand opening successful and seamless. We are thrilled to help bring new job opportunities and the best green practices to the community.”
Unitex will employ approximately 300 local workers once the new plant is fully operational. As health and wellness become a growing industry sector in Middlesex County, Unitex is hoping to help lower the unemployment rate within New Brunswick and surrounding areas.
Unitex is also on the forefront of green technology. Certified by the Healthcare Laundry Accreditation Council (HLAC), Unitex is proud to continually improve in innovation and technology, efficient energy usage and more. Unitex has resourcefully designed and operated its laundry processing facilities and warehouses throughout the Northeast by reducing water, chemical, natural gas and electric usage and cost. Their laundry facilities are able to process 200 million lbs. of laundry annually using only .85 gallons of water per lb. on average, compared to 2.8 gallons per lb. in an average household washer. Along with the water consumption Unitex uses 1,300 BTU’s/lb. which is 44% less than the industry norm.
