Paris Cos., a family-owned uniform, healthcare and hospital linen supplier headquartered in DuBois, Pennsylvania, has been awarded the Textile Rental Services Association’s (TRSA) Hygienically Clean Healthcare certification for its Ravenna, Ohio laundry, reflecting its commitment to best management practices (BMPs) in laundering as verified by on-site inspection and their capability to produce hygienically clean textiles as quantified by ongoing microbial testing.

Paris Cos. serves customers in Pennsylvania, New York, Ohio, and West Virginia. The DuBois facility achieved the Hygienically Clean certification in 2017.

Paris Cos. also holds the TRSA Clean Green certification, which proves their commitment to customers that their laundry is dedicated to standards for operational efficiency and sustainability. Clean Green certification underscores ongoing sustainability efforts and adherence to the highest standards in their production and delivery operations.

Hygienically Clean Healthcare certification acknowledges laundries’ effectiveness in protecting healthcare operations by verifying quality control procedures in linen, uniform and facility services operations related to the handling of textiles containing blood and other potentially infectious materials.

“Congratulations to Paris’ Ravenna location on their certification,” said Joseph Ricci, TRSA president and CEO. “This achievement proves their commitment to infection prevention and that their laundry takes every step possible to prevent human illness.”
