Where did the time go? It’s a brand new year and the beginning of a milestone year for us at Budget Uniform: We are getting ready to celebrate our 60th anniversary. We’ve proudly spent the past six decades dedicated to the art and science of providing Southern California businesses with a high-quality and reliable work uniform program. And while the rest of you settle into your plans and resolutions, we would like to take a moment to give you a big thanks for a fantastic 2018!
At Budget Uniform, your success is our success. We do all we can to provide durable, impeccably maintained uniforms, as well as safety, cleaning and restroom supplies. When you look good and feel good without ever having to think about your work uniform program, we know we’ve done our job well.
60 Years of Customer Commitment
The world was a very different place when we opened our doors for business. In fact, we were born the same year as Barbie. And like her, we’ve changed a lot over the years. We embraced new technologies and processes that allow us to track and sort garments with incredible accuracy and efficiency.
One thing that has not changed, however, is our commitment to providing our clients with both the highest-quality work uniforms and the peerless customer service that has made us Southern California’s uniform rental provider of choice. We’re a local, family-owned business committed to providing a reliable, cost-effective program with the kind of personal attention our customers can’t get from the big national providers.
Along with celebrating our anniversary, here are a few more things on our calendar for 2019. We look forward to sharing another successful year with our customers as they go about the job of growing their businesses without having to worry about their work uniform program.
What’s Ahead for 2019
The past year was one of a few, key changes. We made a technological leap in April when we took the first steps to upgrade our garment sort system. The new one will eventually allow us to track and sort garments using ultra-high frequency (UHF) radio frequency identification (RFID) tags from intake all the way through bundling. This year we will complete the process, enabling us to install a new state-of-the-art sorting system in 2020.
A move to alkaline-free soap will yield environmental benefits while also producing cleaner, more durable garments. Alkaline-free soaps prevent harsh chemicals from going down the drain, while also producing better looking garments in the process.
Our family is getting bigger this year as well, with the addition of a route and a dedicated Service Manager to provide added customer support. These steps, along with our recent addition of an outside salesperson, will help us continue to manage the growth we have experienced over the past couple of years, much of it coming from the institutional food and nutritional supplement segments.
Join the Budget Family
We are looking forward to another great year of helping our hard-working customers do their jobs, safely and in uniforms that make them look and feel good. Our customer-first policies have provided trouble-free work uniforms throughout three generations of ownership, with route service representatives who take the time to get to know customers and a CEO who rides along with them on a regular basis – and who is never more than a phone call away. If that sounds like the kind of service your business could use, we invite you to think about joining us.
