The history behind Alsco becoming global leaders in textile services
With only US$50 in his pocket, 15-year-old George A. Steiner made the first steps in establishing Alsco by purchasing the local towel delivery route in Lincoln, Nebraska from the Lincoln Steam Laundry. Through a little sweat and elbow grease, George and his younger brother Frank helped Alsco flourish on the ever-changing American frontier.
During the 1960s, Alsco began to expand to new horizons which included Argentina, Mexico, South Africa, and Italy. The business thrived in those regions thanks to its reliable, high quality laundry and delivery service.
Fast forward 125 years, Alsco now has 150 branches worldwide and 16,000 employees. We’ve come a long way since the early days. But there are a few things that have stayed constant. That is, our unwavering commitment to providing your business with flexible, convenient, cost-effective rental services. That’s the Alsco guarantee.
