WILMINGTON, Mass., Aug. 29, 2019 /CNW/ -- UniFirst Corporation (NYSE: UNF), an industry leader in the supply and servicing of uniforms, workwear, and facility service products, has secured the No. 9 spot on Apparel magazine's "Top 50" apparel companies list.
This is the 13th consecutive year that Apparel magazine ranked UniFirst as one of America's top 50 apparel companies, and the first time the company has appeared in the top 10. To be eligible for the Apparel listing, public companies had to record at least $100 million in annual sales; rankings were based on overall performance and financial management. UniFirst appears in the top 10 alongside some of America's most popular clothing companies including Nike, Canadian Goose, and lululemon athletica.
"We're honored to be recognized in the prestigious top 10 of Apparel magazine's annual rankings," says Steven Sintros, UniFirst president and CEO. "Our financial success is a direct result of our more than 14,000 employee Team Partners throughout the U.S. and Canada who remain dedicated to always putting our customers first, while striving to achieve continuous growth."
Apparel magazine Editor in Chief Jordan Speer attributes UniFirst's jump in this year's ranking to its remarkable financial performance and continuous focus on the customer. "UniFirst has had an extremely impressive year, earning a top-10 spot on our annual list based on their solid annual performance," says Speer. "UniFirst knows their strength in the marketplace and does a great job accomplishing what has gotten them to the next level—a complete customer focus and the ability to quickly adapt to changes in the industry."
