ARLINGTON, Va. — James Buik, chairman of the Uniform & Textile Service Association (UTSA), has written to Michael Potack, chairman of the Textile Rental Services Association of America (TRSA), seeking a meeting "in which all of the issues the TRSA Board has raised may be discussed and resolved in an open forum."
The UTSA board met Jan. 12 and approved a motion directing Buik to request the meeting with TRSA.
"The Board concluded that despite the recent setbacks, they are still strongly in favor of consolidation and believe that the vast majority of the industry shares this belief," Buik said in his letter.
TRSA has received the letter and will respond to UTSA by week's end, a TRSA spokesman said Wednesday afternoon.
