Mt. Vernon, NY, September 24, 2015- Always on the forefront of innovation and business development, Unitex, a regional business with locations throughout the Northeast and a leader in the healthcare laundry industry, recently acquired the Amertex Textiles Services’ Healthcare Uniform and Textile Rental Business division. Unitex, committed to the uniform and apparel industry, and currently the category leader in the healthcare linen rental business, is looking to expand upon their outpatient medical linen business and this acquisition was a step in the right direction. With this acquisition, Unitex will assume service for approximately 600 new accounts, based in the NY and NJ area.
Amertex, a linen and uniform rental service based in the Bronx, NY, will continue to operate their business, enhancing their efforts in different end-markets within the industry they already serve. To that end, their company executives decided that Unitex was equipped with the best business model to assume serving their healthcare uniform and textile rental clients.
“Acquiring Amertex’s Healthcare Uniform and Textile Business division is definitely a big step forward for Unitex,” said David Potack, Vice President of Unitex. “Since a majority of our business is currently based in the tristate area, we already have a major footprint here and are invested in many of the communities throughout the area. To that end, we are excited to expand our business into new directions and work with new companies.”
Amertex has been owned and managed by the Ginsberg family for three generations. Their hands-on approach helped make the company a major player in the industry and Unitex is excited to continue that legacy and move forward in a positive direction.
