Technology

  • Automated systems sort and track your products throughout the cleaning process using advanced RFID chips and barcoding. This means you get the right product on time, every time.
  • Telematics software reduces fuel consumption and increases safety by monitoring driving activity and creating reports, helping identify inefficiencies and modify driving behaviors.
  • Electronic handheld devices allow customer service representatives to manage accounts in real time, right from their routes: invoicing at point of contact (increases efficiency, decreases mistakes), managing inventory (improves inventory accuracy), ordering products (increases accuracy) and repairing and replacing garments (maintains inventory quality).

The competitive edge of our ingenuity has made us one of North America's most technologically advanced uniform service companies. Each new technology we adopt means better quality and service for our customers. This passion, coupled with personalized service, keeps customers satisfied and sustains the business year after year.

Family Owned

Our privately-held company is still owned and managed by the Steiner family. There are five family members on the Board of Directors and two family members actively involved in the daily operations of the business.

Being family owned differentiates AmeriPride from its large, corporate competitors. While others are beholden to Wall Street, AmeriPride is driven by what is best for our customers. 

The core family values launched and built the company are still guiding it. As testament to that, AmeriPride was recently awarded the Twin Cities Business 2011 Minnesota Family Business Award as the top company in the ‘Legacy’ category.
