The facility increases its capacity to provide cleanroom services in the Southwest of the US and it expects to expand its workforce by 120 over next three years

Aramark, a leader in food, facilities management and uniforms, is increasing its capacity to provide cleanroom services to customers throughout the Southwest region of the US with its new 34,350ft2 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," said 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."

Headquartered in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and active in 19 countries, Aramark supplies sterile garments and contamination control supplies, serving critical environments in the pharmaceutical, medical device, microelectronics, semiconductor and aerospace manufacturing industries.

The company offers products for cleanroom environments such as the Aramark Acuity Goggle which retains visual clarity after sterilisation, MicronSwep a ceiling to floor microfibre cleaning system, and CleanTrak, a proprietary inventory control system that tracks the history of every garment from first use, to repairs and expected last date of use.

All of Aramark's cleanroom processing facilities are ISO Class 5 certified, and use a proprietary wash formula with deionised water to help ensure garments meet Institute of Environmental Sciences and Technology (IEST) recommendations.

The company provides uniform rental and uniform leasing services to more than 300,000 customer accounts nationwide from more than 225 service locations and distribution centres across the US. Its full-service employee uniform solution includes design, sourcing and manufacturing, customisation, cleaning, maintenance, and delivery.
