Production Summit in LA, March 18-19

TRSA’s Production Summit & Plant Tours visits Southern California on March 18-19, 2015. It will be the third time in 13 months that TRSA has conducted this event under its revamped format, which offers commercial launderers the opportunity to view two exemplary laundry facilities in action.

Based at the Embassy Suites at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), attendees will visit Republic Master Chefs Textile Rental Services in Long Beach and Prudential Overall Supply in Irvine. Immediately after the tours, these plants’ managers will accompany participants on their return to the hotel, where a debriefing will foster group analysis of strategies displayed during the tour and their applicability to other launderers’ everyday work.

Prudential’s 60,000-square-foot facility will serve as a model for industrial laundry operators who seek to expand operations in existing locations without access to contiguous land or buildings, and are required to make better use of their building height. The plant’s workflow features vacuum lifting of items from washers to dryers. Republic Master Chefs will exhibit high-productivity food and beverage (F&B) linen production tactics. This 75,000-square-foot facility that produces 120,000 lbs. per day features a variety of technologies, including tablet computing for route packout.

General sessions provide powerful and immediate take-home value, updating participants on industry developments and refining their management and production skills. Topics on the Los Angeles agenda include:

  • Political Impact on Plant Operations
  • Safety Innovations and Best Practices
  • Best Practices in Production Employee Relations

Breakout sessions are market-sector specific and conducted concurrently. These include:

  • Healthcare: Refocusing on Safety
  • Industrial: Holistic Approach to Specialty Apparel
  • Linen: Tips and Commandments on Laundry Operations
