Mt. Vernon, NY, July, 2016- Unitex, a regional business with locations throughout the Northeast and a leader in the healthcare laundry industry, is continuing to grow.  In addition to its newly opened facility in Linden, New Jersey, Unitex has just acquired Oceanside Institutional Industries LLC, one of the largest healthcare linen rental, laundry and uniform rental providers on the East Coast.  Similar to Unitex, Oceanside is family owned and operated and has been a well-regarded industry operator for many years.

Oceanside has a long history of serving customers in the Northeast region and to that end Unitex will take over Oceanside’s business in Long Island and NYC including six hospitals, fourteen nursing homes and approximately 50 outpatient healthcare accounts.  Oceanside has maintained these long-standing relationships since inception and the team at Unitex will continue to provide the highest level of service that these clients have come to expect

“We are excited to be working with our new clients by way of this transition,” said David Potack, Senior Vice President of Unitex.  “We feel this is a win-win situation and helps our new clients meet the needs of their patients in an effective manner. We are proud to serve them and look forward to long term relationships with each of them.”

Always on the forefront of innovation and business development, this acquisition is a positive step for Unitex, a company that is continually expanding.
