BURBANK, Calif., July 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- A leading global service provider is investing and creating jobs in South Florida. ARAMARK, a world leader in providing food, facilities and uniform services, is constructing a state-of-the-art uniform servicing plant in Pompano Beach that is expected to bring 80 to 100 jobs when it opens in fall of 2013.
"We are excited about our expansion in South Florida and the investment we are making in a new industry-leading facility and in the communities we are serving," said Gene West, Group Manager for ARAMARK Uniform Services operations in Florida. "When completed, it will allow us to provide the most efficient, world-class customer service experience available in South Florida, and offer an enriching and enjoyable work environment for our employees."
According to the company, the new 79,000 square-foot facility under construction on the site of a former beverage Distribution Center on Blount Road is ideally situated between Palm Beach and Miami Dade counties with easy access to transportation infrastructure. It will add capacity and employ industry state-of-the-art energy and water conservation technologies that help ARAMARK operate in an environmentally friendly manner while expanding its service. A better space configuration will also help the fast-growing company realize process efficiencies.
"Our new Pompano Beach facility is a win-win for everyone," commented Victor Becerra, General Manager of the new site. "Our investment creates construction jobs in the short term, enriching career opportunities with ARAMARK for people in the longer-term, and ultimately an even greater service experience for our clients and customers moving forward."
ARAMARK has been serving clients in South Florida for over 50 years. This new facility will mark the third addition to ARAMARK Uniform's network of facilities in South Florida in recent years. The company has consistently appeared among Fortune's list of "Most Admired Companies" and is the only company in its industry to be named one of the Ethisphere Institute's "World's Most Ethical Companies" for 2013.
