Aramark's new processing facility in Texas increases cleanroom services capacity
Aramark, a global player in food, facilities management and uniforms, is increasing its capacity to provide cleanroom services to customers throughout the Southwest US with its new 34,350sq.ft processing plant in McKinney, Texas. Over the next three years, the new operation is expected to create approximately 120 new local jobs.
"This expansion is designed to drive innovation and improve the speed of service for our growing cleanroom service customer base in the Southwest," says Brad Drummond, chief operating officer for Aramark's Uniform business. "The McKinney processing facility is the second recent expansion of our cleanroom service capacity, as we opened a smaller, but similar plant in April 2015, in Toronto."
Aramark is an industry leader in supplying sterile garments and contamination control supplies, serving critical environments in the pharmaceutical, medical device, microelectronics, semiconductor, and aerospace manufacturing industries.
The company offers innovative products for cleanroom environments such as the MicronSwep - a ceiling to floor microfibre cleaning system, CleanTrak - a proprietary inventory control system that tracks the history of every garment from first use, to repairs and expected last date of use, and Aramark Acuity Goggle - which retains visual clarity after sterilisation.
All of Aramark's cleanroom processing facilities are International Organisation for Standardisation Class 5 certified, and use a proprietary wash formula with deionised water to help ensure garments meet Institute of Environmental Sciences and Technology recommendations.
