Mission Linen Supply’s new Bay Area facility receives HLAC accreditation

March 5, 2018

Mission Linen Supply, a leading provider of linens, uniforms, laundry services and supplies, has achieved another Healthcare Laundry Accreditation Council (HLAC) accreditation, this time for its new plant in Newark. This accreditation signifies that the plant — which hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony on Feb. 27 — delivers consistent quality and follows laundering processes that promote patient safety.

HLAC is a nonprofit organization that establishes quality and safety standards for laundries that process textiles for hospitals, nursing homes and other health care facilities. Through the accreditation process, the organization provides third-party inspections and recognizes laundry facilities — like Mission’s Newark plant — that meet its high standards. HLAC accreditation is completely voluntary.


“At Mission, we always try to do MORE for our customers,” said John Ross, Mission’s president and CEO. “Through our HLAC accreditation, we’re able to offer our customers the peace of mind of knowing they can count on us for clean, top-quality textiles that meet the highest of standards.”

Mission’s Newark plant achieved accreditation on its first attempt, which is rare for newly opened facilities. In addition to the Newark plant, Mission has nine HLAC accredited locations.

Although the official ribbon cutting ceremony will be held at the end of the month, the state-of-the-art, LEED-certified Newark plant is now open to serve customers throughout the Bay Area. Spanning 109,000 square feet, the facility is capable of processing more than 70 million pounds of laundry per year. For more information, visit http://www.missionlinen.com/Newark.
