September 2019 – Healthcare Linen Services Group (HLSG), a leading provider of linen management services to the healthcare and hospitality industries, has become one of the first companies to acquire the new Enterprise Membership from the Association for Linen Management (ALM). ALM’s Enterprise Membership is perfect for multi-location companies like HLSG; rather than continuing their independent Facility memberships, the new ALM Enterprise Membership gives improved continuity and cost savings for multi-plant operations.
“We are excited to expand our membership with ALM on an enterprise level as they offer a variety of tools and resources that will support our aggressive growth plans in the future,” stated Joseph LaPorta, CEO of HLSG.
ALM Enterprise Membership is an essential tool for all of HLSG’s premier regional brands including Logan’s Healthcare Linens, Logan’s Uniform Rentals, Superior Health Linens, and Textile Care Services. All staff members will have continued access to ALM’s platform including professional development, articles, events, and certifications.
“We value our members and the relationships we have built with them over decades, as with the facilities under the HLSG umbrella” said Linda Fairbanks, executive director of ALM. “We look forward to continuing collaboration with HLSG to keep improving the resources to the entire textile care industry, such as our new, revolutionary benchmarking platform, LaundryMarksTM by ALM, as well as find new ways to provide education for every level of business.”
“As we continue to see the linen industry evolve, partnerships like ALM are invaluable to our member companies and organization,” said Joseph LaPorta, CEO of HLSG.
