Linen King Expanding with New Facility in Missouri Industrial Park

Bruce Beggs |

COLUMBIA, Mo. — Linen King, an Oklahoma-based provider of laundry services to the healthcare industry, will be opening a 52,000-square-foot facility in an industrial park here.
With four healthcare-specific industrial laundries, Linen King has the capacity to process almost 75 million pounds of laundry per year and will employ more than 200 people for fiscal 2010 with revenues approaching $20 million.
Linen King provides laundry service for rental and customer-owned-goods accounts, as well as distribution, facilities management and consulting services. Its other facilities are located in Oklahoma and Arkansas.
Linen King anticipates hiring 30 people at the Columbia plant over the next six months, and has the capacity to grow the facility to close to 100 employees in less than five years.
“This is more great news for our community,” says Columbia Mayor Bob McDavid. “Linen King will diversify our economic base in a way that’s been missing for a while. I am very excited for the people who will find work at that organization.”
The plant’s grand opening is planned for August.
