NEWARK, CALIF.—Mission Linen Supply, a leading provider of linens, uniforms, supplies and related services, has built and opened a new, 100,000-square-foot, LEED-certified facility in Newark, Calif. Equipped to process more than 70 million pounds of laundry each year, this new facility will enable Mission to provide efficient linen services to hospitality businesses throughout San Francisco and the surrounding areas.
Leveraging more than 85 years of experience, Mission serves hospitality businesses throughout the western United States and Texas. Like other Mission locations, the Newark facility offers rental and direct-purchase products and provides laundry services for the aforementioned items as well as for consumer-owned goods (COG). Additionally, Mission offers 24/7 service and is a single-source provider for a variety of other essentials, including restroom supplies, cleaning products, floor mats and beyond. The company also offers e-commerce solutions and collaborates with its customers to monitor inventory, evaluate product usage and determine the most cost-effective supply programs.
The state-of-the-art Newark facility—Mission’s 44th location—leverages the latest advances in equipment technology and automation and is designed to protect the environment. The facility uses less than 0.85 gallons of water per pound of laundry, making it three times more efficient than the industry standard. It also features solar panels, uses energy-efficient light sources and recycles wastewater. Additionally, more than 25 percent of the plant’s delivery vehicles use alternative fuels.
“We’re thrilled about the opportunities this new facility creates,” said John Ross, Mission’s president and CEO. “Not only will it allow us to bring our vast hospitality industry experience, commitment to sustainability and wide selection of products to new customers in the Bay Area, but it will also help us provide even better service for many of our existing local accounts.”
