KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa. — ImageFIRST, a provider of linen and laundry services for the healthcare industry, reports it has acquired Textile Care Services (TCS) of Utah, located in Salt Lake City.
“As we continue to aggressively seek opportunities across the U.S., we viewed TCS as a leading regional provider and a business that strongly aligns with our service culture,” says Jim Cashman, president and CEO of ImageFIRST.
“The TCS deal gives ImageFIRST a strong foothold in Utah and greater strengthens our national leadership position.”
This acquisition marks ImageFIRST’s first facility in the state of Utah. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
Textile Care Services, founded in 1988, is one of the largest providers of healthcare linen and laundry services in Utah. TCS is currently owned by Rick Taft, who will remain with the business as the general manager.
ImageFIRST says that existing TCS customers will be serviced by the company as it continues to grow its customer base, creating more expansive linen service capabilities and job opportunities in the area.
Existing leadership and employees will be retained as part of the transaction.

This strengthened national coverage also supports ImageFIRST’s National Account division as it seeks to expand its offerings to more multiregional accounts.
