Posted February 15, 2024 at 5:50 pm

Crothall Laundry Services, a leading provider of outsourced laundry and linen-management services to the healthcare and hospitality sectors, is now Core Linen Services. As part of the continued evolution of the organization, the rebranding to Core Linen Services is a significant milestone in the company’s 33-year history.

Founded in 1991, Core Linen Services provides mission-critical laundry and linen-management services nationally with 29 operations that process 500 million lbs. of linens annually. The company utilizes the highest quality and sustainability standards and processes that adhere to Hygienically Clean, HLAC, OSHA and JCAHO guidelines.

The move to the new brand and company name is one that was planned since the sale of the company to H.I.G. Capital in 2020. “This is an exciting time for the organization as we complete the final step of our evolution to a fully independent service provider in the healthcare and hospitality industry,” said Michael Barner, Core Linen Services’ CEO. “I am excited about the name change and how Core exemplifies our company’s commitment to excellence in all we do. Core is more than a name, it is our foundation and the values we represent for our customers and associates: a passion for excellence, trust and mutual respect, collaboration and inclusion, development and employee safety and social responsibility.”

Anthony Chambers, managing director at H.I.G., said that, “Core Linen Services is the clear leader in the laundry and linen-management sector, serving healthcare institutions through the combination of best-in-class operations, scalable data-driven processes and a stringent focus on quality. We are excited about this recent brand change, moving to the next chapter of growth for the organization.”

Since its founding in 1993, H.I.G. Capital, Miami, has invested in and managed more than 400 companies worldwide. The firm’s current portfolio includes more than 100 companies with combined sales in excess of $53 billion. For more information, visit the H.I.G. website at
