In the fast-paced world of linen and uniform services, one company stands out from the rest—Ace ImageWear. With a rich history dating back to 1932 when our grandparents started the business in the basement of their house, we have grown to become a trusted name in the industry. Today, with headquarters in both Kansas City, Missouri, and Houston, Texas, we take pride in providing exceptional service and setting ourselves apart with the Ace ImageWear Difference.
A Legacy of Quality and Service
Our journey started with humble beginnings, serving the local community. The grocery store down the street was among our founders’ first customers, and we quickly expanded to neighboring businesses, bars, and more. They were the driving force behind our early success. One expertly sewed and processed the products while the other tirelessly worked on sales, spreading the word about our growing business.
Expanding Horizons: The Merger and Regional Presence
To further our growth and establish a regional presence, we made the strategic decision to merge with a company in Texas several years ago. This allowed us to operate under a single name, Ace ImageWear. This merger not only strengthened our operations but also highlighted our commitment to providing outstanding service to a wider customer base.
Investing in Sustainability: The Water Reuse System
As a forward-thinking company, we have always sought innovative solutions to improve our services. One such investment that sets us apart is our cutting-edge water reuse system. This project represented a significant milestone for Ace ImageWear, as it was the largest investment we had made as a company. The decision to explore this initiative had been on our minds for some time.
Choosing the Right Partner: Norchem and Shared Values
When it came to implementing the water reuse system, partnering with the right company was crucial. That's when we turned to Norchem, a family-owned business like ours. We have a strong belief in supporting family-owned companies, whether they are local or not, rather than opting for larger national corporations. The values and commitment that come with a multi-generational family business align perfectly with our own.
Family-owned businesses have the ability to uphold the humble values with which they began. Unlike large corporations driven solely by shareholder interests, these multi-generational enterprises have a personal touch and a sense of longevity. Our partnership with Norchem extends beyond problem-solving; it is about preserving the legacy of both our companies. This sentiment holds great importance to us.
Unveiling a Vision: Making the Water Recycling Dream a Reality
To better understand Norchem's existing systems, a few team members from our company traveled to Los Angeles and San Diego. After carefully studying their operations, we presented our ideas and proposed creative solutions that utilized their equipment while integrating new components. By optimizing the use of existing resources, we were able to reduce installation costs significantly, surpassing a major hurdle.
A Seamless Transition: From Installation to Activation
The final phase of this transformative project involved installing the water reuse system. Over a single weekend, our dedicated team worked diligently to ensure a seamless transition. As Monday morning arrived, we eagerly flipped the switch, activating the system and witnessing the culmination of our hard work. It was a moment of great satisfaction, as the system performed precisely as we had envisioned.
