National healthcare linen provider, ImageFIRST, expands its laundry service and processing capabilities in the Nashville area with its latest acquisition thereby adding its first processing plant in Tennessee to its portfolio.  The announcement that it has acquired Tennessee-based Allegiant Linen Services marks ImageFIRST’s first processing plant in the state. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed. 

“There is a huge opportunity in front of us by partnering with ImageFIRST,” said Steve Syvertson, one of the owners of Allegiant Linen Services. “As two companies that prioritize customer service, this partnership demonstrates our commitment to serving the needs of our customers first and foremost.” 

Allegiant Linen Services, founded in 2019, provides comprehensive linen rental and laundry services for hospitality and healthcare businesses throughout Central Tennessee. Allegiant will continue to be led by local leadership and existing associates have been retained as part of the transaction. 

ImageFIRST is the largest linen and laundry services provider in the U.S. that specializes in the healthcare industry. With locations nationwide, the acquisition of this processing plant enables ImageFIRST to further optimise delivery processes and quality of service, while creating more job opportunities in the area. Existing Allegiant customers will now be serviced by ImageFIRST.

“We are looking forward to working with Steve Syvertson and team to expand our service area in Tennessee,” said ImageFIRST president and CEO, Jim Cashman. “This partnership is a crucial next step as it enables current and future customers to benefit from our industry-leading service.” 

ImageFIRST has acquired more than 10 organisations across the US  within the past year, making it the largest national linen and laundry provider specialising in the healthcare industry. This strengthened national coverage also supports ImageFIRST’s expanding National Account division as it grows its service offerings to more multilocation accounts.
