Iron City’s Partnerships & Affiiations
Iron City remains involved with certain industry organizations in order to consistently improve and stay informed in the textile market.
TRSA – Textile Rental Services Association
TRSA is an international organization representing companies that supply laundered garments, uniforms, linens, floor mats, towels and other products necessary for businesses to operate safe, clean facilities, serve their customers and provide a clean, attractive environment and image. TRSA companies are specialists in providing and managing quality textile goods directly to business locations and are experts in determining the most hygienic and cost-effective laundering solutions for facilities and workplaces ranging from small medical practices serving a few patients at a time to stadiums accommodating 100,000 spectators. The largest users of textile rental services are hospitality, healthcare, retail, manufacturing and automotive services.
TRSA supports textile rental services companies by:
- Protecting and expanding the market for textile services by advocating for fair, balanced and pro-business regulation and taxation
- Facilitating the sharing of information and best practices at conferences, events and online
- Conducting research and benchmarking initiatives that improve productivity and customer services
- Disseminating articles, case studies, information, trends and news
TRSA’s strong, diverse membership represents nearly 90 percent of the textile services market: national chains to local single-plant operators and associates that provide the products, machinery, supplies and services required by the industry.
TRSA works closely with members and federal agencies to improve employee safety and to develop a sustainable reusable textile services industry by reducing our use of energy and natural resources.
CSC Network is a national alliance of independent laundries, such as Iron City. Iron City sends an employee quarterly to CSC meetings to gain training and knowledge of the industry, as well to network and gain experiences from other family-owned and independent operators in our industry.
