Posted April 27, 2015 at 5:57 pm

UniFirst Corp. and the Massachusetts Biotechnology Council recently formed a partnership that allows MassBio members to save on uniform and facility services. Under the agreement, UniFirst will offer MassBio members significantly reduced rates on workwear service programs. MassBio members also will have access to UniClean, a provider of cleanroom and controlled environment garments and products. 

“MassBio members require a range of workwear for their facilities, but finding the right provider at the right price can be difficult,” said Robert K. Coughlin, president & CEO of MassBio. “We are pleased to be able to offer MassBio members a discount on UniFirst’s uniform services through our new partnership.” MassBio members will receive discounts of 30%-50% off of UniFirst standard list pricing, free lab coat pressing, dedicated customer service agents, free company or name emblems on initial installation, and one week of complimentary service with a new agreement. 

"UniFirst is committed to meeting the business needs of the growing biopharma sector here in Massachusetts and our partnership with MassBio is a testament to this,” said UniFirst President & CEO Ronald Croatti. “With the Boston-Cambridge area having recently being named the top biopharma cluster in the U.S. and being a Massachusetts-based company ourselves, we think this is the perfect time to have entered into this new relationship. We look forward to providing MassBio members with the highest levels of products and services for years to come.”
