Crown Uniform & Linen Service will hold an invitation only groundbreaking ceremony for their new textile laundering and distribution facility at 309 Battles St. in Brockton, Massachusetts. Over the last 11 months Crown has invested considerable resources into the cleanup of the site, with upwards of 1.5 million dollars spent to handle and dispose of asbestos materials which were then transported to a disposal facility in Ohio.
The new 94,000 square foot facility will house a laundering plant and administrative office space on twenty acres of land. The facility will feature many new energy efficient technologies that promote sustainable business practices. New equipment is being chosen not only for its efficiency, but for its ability to minimize impact on the environment. New Cleaver Brooks boilers will run on natural gas, are the lowest NOx emitting boilers available, and feature specialized controls that ensure the highest level of burning efficiency. A Norchem Ceramic Filtration System is wastewater treatment and water recycling system that is fully automated, chemical free, and specifically engineered for laundry wastewater treatment and energy recovery.
Crown will be merging two existing facilities into the new plant and plans to keep the existing workforce in place, while filling any additional positions from the Brockton area. When the plant is fully operational it will employ at least 100 people and as the company grows, more employment opportunities will become available.
The groundbreaking ceremony will take place on October 23, 2013 and speakers will include: Brockton Mayor Linda Balzotti, Brockton’s Ward 7 City Councilor Chris MacMillan, State Representative Michael Brady, State Representative Claire Cronin, Executive Director of Mass Office Business Development Michael Hunter, and Brockton’s Chamber of Commerce President Christopher Cooney.
