MENOMONEE FALLS, Wis. — Cintas Corp. reports it held a grand-opening ceremony on Nov. 15 at its newest Cleanroom facility, located outside of Milwaukee.
The state-of-the-art location in Menomonee Falls creates additional capacity in Cintas’ national Cleanroom footprint.
Cintas says the space will support high-growth and innovation industries in the region, including pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, medical device manufacturing, compounding pharmacies, electronics manufacturing, aerospace and defense, nanotechnology, semiconductor, automotive and optics, among other industries.
“Cleanroom is an exciting, growing business for us, and we’re especially excited to expand our resources in the Upper Midwest where we already have a long, successful history,” says Nick Grote, Cintas Cleanroom regional business director.
“This new Menomonee Falls location was built to support the growth of high-tech and innovation industries in the region, as well as the vast network of technology, research, and development operations throughout the Upper Midwest, the North Central region of the U.S. and Canada.
“As we’ve seen in the last 18 to 24 months, innovation- and research-based industries are expanding quickly around North America. We’re excited that we can service these important industries and meet their very specific needs as they continue to innovate for our collective future.”
The company says its Menomonee Falls Cleanroom facility has immediate openings for 10-15 new jobs and expects to add 15-20 employees during the next two to four months.
The facility already employs 40 people.
“Cintas has been doing business in Wisconsin for more than 30 years, and we’re excited to continue growing our operations with so many new jobs at this location,” says Mark Brede, general manager of the Menomonee Falls Cleanroom.
Cintas Cleanrooms use a highly specialized laundering process with strict standard operating procedures and stringent requirements that meet and maintain ISO 9001 certification, the company says.
The Cleanroom process removes particulates from specialized employee workwear required in highly controlled high-tech manufacturing, research and testing environments.
Cintas says its Cleanrooms developed contamination control equipment, systems and technology to meet the stringent requirements of its customers and deliver quality, value and service for industries that require contamination-control solutions for their workwear.
Dedicated Cleanroom quality managers monitor Cintas’ Cleanroom facilities as part of a comprehensive total quality management program.
