WAYNE, Pa. — Crothall Laundry Services has started construction on a new, state-of-the-art, 60,150-square-foot laundry facility in Manteca, Calif.
Encompassing more than five acres, the new facility is projected to open in summer 2014 and will offer centralized healthcare laundry services to both Northern and Central California.
Located within the CenterPoint Intermodal Center (CIC) in Manteca, the plant will be near several key transportation hubs. The building will be LEED-certified, and have the capacity to process more than 55 million pounds of linen annually, Crothall says.
“Crothall chose to locate within CIC-Manteca due to flexibility in the design and construction of our build-to-suit laundry facility. However, we are excited for several reasons about this new location,” says Crothall President Steve Carpenter.
The facility will be the second ground-up, high-tech, state-of-the-art laundry built by Crothall. Its last project, also engineered by Ian Bigelow, was an 82,950-square-foot plant in Oak Creek, Wis.
“We are excited about being able to provide healthcare customers in the Northern and Central areas of California with laundry and linen service that is flexible, green and has state-of-the-art efficiencies, lowering costs for healthcare providers,” says Brian Dunn, national director of sales.
