Spic and Span shuttered doors March 30; ITU began servicing customers April 2

NEW BERLIN, Wis. — ITU AbsorbTech, an industrial laundry based here, has acquired assets from Spic and Span, a uniform rental and industrial supply company based in Milwaukee, the company reports.

“Spic and Span has been a great competitor of ITU AbsorbTech for a long time,” says Jim Leef, third-generation president and owner of ITU AbsorbTech. “Its customers are a great fit for us. We look forward to providing them with the high level of service they’re accustomed to receiving.”

Spic and Span Inc. ceased operation at the end of business March 30. ITU AbsorbTech says it began servicing the acquired customer locations April 2 out of its processing plants in New Berlin and Neenah, Wis.

“The time was right as a number of our employees, including myself, wanted to retire,” says Bob Miller, president of Spic and Span. “It was important that our 116-year commitment to customer service continue and turning that responsibility over to the Leefs will make it so.”

ITU AbsorbTech says it has provided industrial services in support of cleaner, safer and more productive work environments since 1930. ITU AbsorbTech’s sustainable solutions include reusable and professionally laundered absorbents, towels, mops, floor mats and cotton roll towels.

The company is family-owned and -operated with 13 locations throughout the eastern half of the United States.
