Dempsey Uniform & Linen Acquires W.H. Linen & Supply

Company now operates six locations between New York City and Washington, D.C.

JESSUP, Pa. — Dempsey Uniform & Linen of New Jersey LLC reports it has acquired the assets of W.H. Linen & Supply Co. Inc.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Currently celebrating 60 years in business, Dempsey says it supplies restaurant linen service to restaurants and contract food service companies located throughout the Mid-Atlantic and the Northeast. 

Family-owned and operated, the company says it is known for leveraging the latest technologies to better serve their customers while helping them control costs. 

Located in Clifton, N.J., W.H. Linen was also a family-owned company that had established itself—over its 70-year history—as a supplier of uniform rentals and linen services in New York City and Northern New Jersey.

With this acquisition, Dempsey says it can build on W.H. Linen’s record of success by bringing its own commitment to performance to the table. The goal is to continue to provide the highest quality linens to fine-dining establishments. 

“W.H. Linen was a highly respected organization with a solid reputation for delivering high-quality products and excellent customer service,” says Kristin Dempsey, vice president of sales and service. “We’re pleased that so many of their people are joining the Dempsey family of employees.”

“We have a great base of operations at the former W.H. Linen plant in Clifton, and we will continue to service customers in New York City and Northern New Jersey from this location,” says P.J. Dempsey, president. “We will also invest in additional equipment, technology and products that will make our offering even stronger. 

“At Dempsey, we want restaurants to be able to concentrate on their customers and employees while our restaurant linen service runs seamlessly in the background.” 

With the W.H. Linen acquisition, Dempsey now operates six locations between New York City and Washington, D.C.
