Who We Are

UniFirst is one of North America's largest workwear and textile services companies. We rent, lease, and sell uniforms, protective clothing, custom corporate workwear, floorcare, and other facility services products to all kinds of businesses. UniFirst is a leading supplier of uniforms, workwear and related products to businesses big and small since 1936, meaning we are in our eighth decade of servicing North American businesses. We provide a wide range of apparel from traditional uniforms, industrial wear, specialty and protective clothing to corporate casual and executive attire. UniFirst manages the uniforms of both small and large companies such as Walmart, Costco, and Canadian Tire. We also offer products such as restroom service products, soaps, air fresheners, mats, and mops.

Our Corporate Mission is to be recognized as the quality leader in our industry. Our careful focus on serving each customer’s special needs and providing total satisfaction enables us to grow, to provide an equitable return on investment, and to create opportunities for all of our employees.

UniFirst Corporation presently employs over 10,000 "Team Partners" who service more than 240,000 customer locations throughout North America, Europe, and Mexico. We recognize that our continued success depends on the skill, creativity and initiative of everyone on our team. We also have three subsidiary companies: Green Guard, UniTech Services Group, and UniClean which supply first aid equipment, laundering and decontamination services, and clothing and services related to cleanrooms.

Not only do UniFirst’s employees pride themselves on their exceptional quality and customer service, we also pride ourselves on being an active member of the Textile Service Industry’s “Laundry Environment Stewardship Program”. We’ve contributed to important efforts that help preserve our natural resources for generations to come. In fact, we were one of the first companies in our industry to make significant investments in re-engineering our facilities to be “greener”, more environmentally friendly operations.
