Oelwein, Iowa-based CITY growing into Minneapolis-St. Paul market

Bloomington, Minn. — CITY Laundering Co. reports it acquired Spruce Linen Supply, effective Aug. 1.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

CITY, which is celebrating 116 years in business, plans to build upon Spruce’s 57 years of servicing the Minneapolis-St. Paul Metropolitan area.

“We are excited to partner with a multi-generational family business like Spruce,” says Colin Wetlaufer, president of CITY.  

“CITY has a long history and great reputation for providing outstanding customer service,” say Mike Russel and Gail Gust, Spruce’s former owners. “It is important to us to transition our business to a company that would take good care of our employees and customers.

“We are confident that the customers are in good hands with CITY. In fact, we think they will be excited about some of the products, programs, and people that they will discover with CITY.”

“We welcome all of the Spruce accounts into the CITY family, and we look forward to continuing to grow in the market as we strive to be the region’s most responsive launderer,” Wetlaufer says.

Headquartered in Oelwein, Iowa, CITY says it continues to grow organically and through strategic acquisitions in the region.
