UniFirst is one of the world's largest suppliers of uniforms and protective apparel. The company was established in the 1930s as a family-owned laundry business and has since greatly expanded the scope of its operations to include the design, manufacture, sale, rental and cleaning of a comprehensive range of workwear garments.
