TRSA Operator Lifetime Achievement Award
Each year, the Textile Rental Services Association of America (TRSA) honors a select group of individuals for their involvement within the industry. Lawrence "Larry" Steiner, a member of the founding family and the current AmeriPride Board of Directors, was recently recognized for his many achievements at AmeriPride Services and his lifetime commitment to the industry. We thank him for his ongoing dedication and congratulate him for this most recent honor.
The TRSA Operator Lifetime Achievement Award is the highest honor that can be attained by a professional in our industry. The award recognizes exceptional personal service to both the textile services industry and TRSA. Candidates are nominated by their operator peers and are ultimately selected by the TRSA Executive Committee.
Congratulations to Larry Steiner for receiving this award, honoring his highly successful career at AmeriPride. We are privileged to have a person such as Larry serve our company during his lengthy career. He has played an integral role in the ongoing success of AmeriPride Services!
TRSA represents the $16-billion textile services industry that employs nearly 200,000 people at more than 2,000 facilities nationwide. These companies provide laundered textiles and other products and services that help businesses project a clean and attractive public image. The industry reaches every major business and industrial region, Congressional district and city in the country. Most Americans benefit at least once a week from the cleanliness and safety provided by the industry-through its laundering and delivery of reusable linens, uniforms, towels, mats and other products for the healthcare, hospitality and industrial/manufacturing sectors. TRSA member companies' services minimize environmental impacts on air, water and solid waste disposal while reducing costs for millions of customers. Member facilities use high-capacity, high-speed laundry equipment to achieve tremendous efficiencies in the use of utilities and chemistry. TRSA guides members in continuous improvement in this respect, sparking new environmentally friendly business practices.
