NEW YORK and ORLANDO, Fla., Feb. 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- LifeThreads™ LLC (www.life-threads.com) is partnering with PureTex Solutions (www.puretexsolutions.com), a Florida-based medical laundry and uniform rental company, to offer the company's recently introduced antimicrobial, medical apparel product line on a rental basis to the healthcare industry.
Last month, LifeThreads introduced its "first of its kind" medical apparel product line treated with an EPA-registered antimicrobial active ingredient that protects the fabric from harmful pathogens found within institutional medical environments.
PureTex Solutions provides linen, healthcare apparel and other ancillary products for the healthcare industry. It offers high quality, hygienically processed, technologically advanced uniforms and textiles on a rental basis.
"We're partnering with PureTex Solutions to offer our products via a rental model that we believe will revolutionize the healthcare laundry industry," said Karan Jhunjhunwala, founder and CEO of LifeThreads. "In addition to our direct sales channel, this partnership will enable LifeThreads to offer our products for rent and – go a step beyond – by providing a laundry service to healthcare institutions.
"There is a growing trend among both inpatient and outpatient centers for outsourcing their laundry needs and renting their textiles – rather than purchasing them – to avoid the upfront capital costs and the headache of managing inventory. Capitalizing on this growing trend taking place in the industry, we wanted to be one of the first movers to offer our products via a rental model," said Mr. Jhunjhunwala.
"LifeThreads' commitment to lowering the number of healthcare-associated infections by targeting soft surfaces and innovation in technology makes it a natural partner for us," said Craig Mayo, CEO of PureTex Solutions. "Combining antimicrobial treated garments with advanced laundering processes means our clients receive high-quality textiles and peace of mind knowing they are making a difference in the health of their patients."
Based in Orlando and founded in 2013, PureTex Solutions is one of a few medical launderers in the nation offering a comprehensive line-up of antimicrobial products. The company currently services the Florida region with plans to expand nationwide. For pricing and service options, visit www.puretexsolutions.com or call 1-800-772-9704.
