Modern Innovation, Old School Service
The foundation for The CLEAN Culture began over 75 years ago with our founder’s focus on innovation and tradition. What began as a small industrial laundry in St. Louis has grown into one of the largest family-owned independent launderers in the nation with over 400 employees and offices in four states in the central U.S.
Since its founding, every employee at CLEAN has shared the same goal: “Make The Customer Love You!” This commitment to flawless service has resulted in a reputation which remains unmatched in the industry.
Keeping that reputation takes hard work and constant attention. By embracing innovation, while staying rooted in tradition, CLEAN is always building towards the future while never forgetting the past. The CLEAN Culture is a reflection of this vision, showing itself every day through our commitment to the wellbeing of our employees, our families, and our communities.
Green Innovation for
a CLEAN Future
CLEAN has made a serious effort to “clean” up what was typically a pollution-heavy industry. But more than simply helping the environment, CLEAN realized that being a “green” uniform company was good for business.
For example, ISO 14001 certification for environmental compliance also improves plant efficiency and reduces waste. Wastewater treatment equipment pays for itself by eliminating fees and fines and solar panels cut the amount of energy that needs to be purchased from a power plant. Innovation has allowed CLEAN to reduce its impact on the environment while being able to invest more in what matters most.Learn More
A Tradition of
Investment doesn’t stop at plant improvements. CLEAN is committed to investing its most valuable resource: its employees. Morris knew that if you take care of your employees, they will take care of you, and that has proven to be one of the key components of CLEAN’s success.
In fact, CLEAN isn’t just a family business for the owners. Generations of employees and managers have worked for CLEAN. It’s not uncommon to see a manager whose father or mother started on the plant floor, or one who started there themselves. A family-owned business means that profits don’t go to shareholders or a board of directors—they go right back into the company and the community to continuously make them better. The results speak for themselves.Learn More
TIME TO GO CLEAN
Investing in employees and innovation doesn’t mean forgetting the past or sacrificing tradition.
CLEAN proves that building for the future continues to achieve the same goal Morris Lazaroff had more than 75 years ago: “Make The Customer Love You!”
