Crothall Becomes Core Linen Services

New brand, company name planned since sale to H.I.G. Capital in 2020

HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. — Crothall Laundry Services, a provider of outsourced laundry and linen management services to the healthcare and hospitality sectors based here, reports it has rebranded to Core Linen Services.

As part of the continued evolution of the organization, the rebranding to Core Linen Services is a significant milestone in the company’s 33-year history.

Crothall, founded in 1991, says it provides mission-critical laundry and linen management services nationally with 29 operations that process 500 million pounds of linens annually. 

The company says it utilizes the highest quality and sustainability standards and processes that adhere to Healthcare Laundry Accreditation Council (HLAC), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and The Joint Commission (JCAHO) guidelines.

The move to the new brand and company name is one that had been planned since the sale of the company to H.I.G. Capital in 2020. 

“This is an exciting time for the organization as we complete the final step of our evolution to a fully independent service provider in the healthcare and hospitality industry,” says Michael Barner, Core Linen Services’ CEO. 

“I am excited about the name change and how Core exemplifies our company’s commitment to excellence in all we do. 

“Core is more than a name, it is our foundation and the values we represent for our customers and associates: a passion for excellence, trust and mutual respect, collaboration and inclusion, development and employee safety and social responsibility.”

“Core Linen Services is the clear leader in the laundry and linen management sector serving healthcare institutions through the combination of best-in-class operations, scalable data-driven processes and a stringent focus on quality,” says said Anthony Chambers, managing director at H.I.G.

“We are excited about this recent brand change, moving to the next chapter of growth for the organization.”
