Now Offering Carhartt Workwear
As a leader in serving hard workers throughout west Michigan, mid Michigan and northern Indiana, Gallagher Uniform is thrilled to add yet another stellar brand to our lineup of garment choices… Carhartt! Available as part of our uniform programs or for direct purchase, we could not be more excited to offer such a respected brand, company, and identity to our loyal customers.
Carhartt has been around just a few years longer than Gallagher (founded in 1889) and has functioned as a family-owned company since the beginning—just like us! And guess where it was founded… Michigan! Started by Hamilton Carhartt in Dearborn to make work clothing for manual laborers, we can’t help but notice how it echoes when our owner John C. Gallagher opened Detroit Waste Works, Inc. producing utility rags for local businesses, making carrying their tried and true garments even more special.
The evolution of Carhartt’s products has proven not only to be successful but to truly fit the mold of their customers and their needs, something we strive for as well. That’s why this partnership makes so much sense for us. We want to provide the best for those who choose Gallagher Uniform, and that’s why we choose brands that we know will serve and protect our customers.
And Carhartt is on a mission like us, too. “We’re maximizing performance on the job with innovative workwear solutions for crews of all sizes, with any specialized need from high-vis to flame resistance, for every challenging task and condition on earth.” If you want to learn more about their dedication, head over to their website.
If you’re interested in adding Carhartt garments to your existing uniform program or are ready to make the switch to Gallagher, contact us today!
Why Uniforms and Uniform Workwear?
You’d Be Surprised. Here are 7+ Benefits a Uniform Program Provides
It’s a simple question — why do companies have their employees wear uniforms in the workplace? The easy answer is that uniforms are meant to ensure safety and provide a corporate identity or image of employees.
On top of that, uniforms can be good marketing and advertising tools. Some customers we work with, especially with many “front of house” employees like automotive dealerships, casinos, service industries and more, use uniforms as part of their marketing strategy.
With improvements in fabrics and garment designs, you can get more than the traditional “uniform” — and you can bet you get a unique uniform company in Gallagher. Here are seven benefits to workplace uniforms that you probably haven’t thought of.
Imagine how easy it could be to get ready in the morning without having to stand in front of your closet and decide what to wear. Add in not have to buy work clothes or deal with all that laundry.
Boost Employee Morale
If a uniform is ill-fitting and unappealing, it can eat away at employee pride and motivation for their job. But a well-fitted, high-quality, stylish uniform can have the complete opposite effect.
In fact, providing your workforce with an attractive and comfortable uniform does a couple of things. First of all, it shows that you care about them, how they look, and how they feel. It also has the added benefit of enhancing their self-esteem, improving their attitude, and boosting their morale. They’ll be motivated to maintain and wear their uniforms, which increases their motivation to keep their work at a high standard.
“Casual Friday” is a thing for a reason; many people assume that workers are more productive when they can wear their own clothes. That’s not always the case. According to a study from Scientific American, the way we dress can influence work performance. In fact, individuals dressed in a formal manner (uniforms!) performed better in tasks than those wearing casual clothes. Whether it’s your shop floor or at the front door, well-appointed employees are sure to impress!
Uniforms can provide a sense of belonging, keeping employees safe, productive, and establish a more professional frame of mind. This helps them get into a working mindset, as opposed to employees feeling that they’re staying “casual” when wearing every day clothes.
Provide Free Advertising
If you’re looking for an inexpensive way to advertise your company, uniforms are the way to go. Your company becomes instantly recognizable, which is basically a free way to influence the brand. You can take it a step further and provide incentives or gifts of custom company-branded apparel like jackets, hats, scarves, polo shirts and more.
Science even backs this claim up. According to a study from Ashwini K. Poojary from the Sawyer Business School, Suffolk University, Boston:
- 1% of respondents said that uniforms are more effective than internet advertising
- 5% of respondents said that uniforms are more effective than TV advertising
- 4% of respondents said that uniforms are more effective than radio advertising
- 7% of respondents said that uniforms are more effective than billboard advertising
- 55% of respondents said that uniforms are more effective than the Yellow Pages
- 5% of respondents said that uniforms are more effective than newspaper advertising
Uniforms can help companies like yours develop a positive brand attitude in customers that can lead to increased brand loyalty and increased sales.
Improve Employee Security and Safety
Safety and security are top-of-mind in just about every industry, and simply adding a uniform program can help in both ways. For example, if your employees work in hazardous environments, outfitting them in uniforms that have innovative materials to combat any dangers improves the safety of those who are on the job. Even FR, Enhanced Visibility and other specialty garments can be customized for your company.
If you work include employees across several departments, outfitting each department in a
different uniform style or color means you can easily identify which employee doesn’t belong in a particular department — and if they’re placing themselves in unnecessary danger.
Create a Team Bond
There’s a good reason that sports teams and school children are outfitted in similar uniforms — they foster a sense of belonging, bonding, and sense of unity. A unified look can help your workforce feel like they’re working towards the same goals, helping them align with the company values.
Uniforms connect everyone as an equal and are part of the same group, which can ultimately lead to greater success for your company and increase employee loyalty. In addition, a uniform gives off an air of authority and knowledge, something customers instantly recognize.
Somewhere There is a Worker Without Pants. Not with Gallagher Uniform
If you already have a uniform program, you may spend time handling employee complaints about missing pants or shirts. The Gallagher Uniform difference is we promise 100% complete delivery, repairs and replacements, on time! Help your employees avoid the stress of shortages, missed repairs and that looming risk of payroll deduction for lost garments. That doesn’t happen here, we guarantee it.
And, with our G-Trak Mobile App, anyone who wears a uniform has immediate access to their uniform activity, can easily request repairs, replacement and track where their garments are.
The Gallagher Uniform Difference
Gallagher Uniform offers a full range of uniform rental programs and related products that help keep your employees and workplace looking great. You can count on us for products of the highest quality, renowned for durability, safety, style, and appeal.
In fact, through our uniform programs, we provide 22 garments to each employee, at no charge. They are personally fitted. And the rest is left to Gallagher – picking up dirty garments, delivering back clean, fully repaired, or replaced garments (which are free when they wear out). And depending on how your uniform program is set up with our company, your employees receive a week’s worth of garments to wear for the price of a daily fancy coffee, like a Salted Caramel Mocha Frappuccino, or 2 Five-Hour energies
From industrial workwear to shop towels, janitorial supplies to lab coats, we can start or improve your uniform program. Make the switch today. Simply give us a call at 800-468-7174 or contact us here..
Lab Coats – Not Just for Doctors’ Offices Anymore
When you think of a crisp, white lab coat, you probably think of a scientist or someone in the medical profession, and for good reason. People who work in places like chemical labs and doctors’ offices often wear them on a daily basis. It’s a sign of scientific and health care work… usually.
But, they’re also worn by people working in food processing plants, pharmaceutical manufacturing, dentistry, and even by people who spend their days making beer. They’re not just worn for fashion, but rather they serve a very important function.
The Function (Over Fashion) of a Lab Coat
Barrier Protection — Ensure employees avoid direct contact with hazardous substances in the workspace. Lab coats provide substantial barrier protection and shield a person’s torso and arms from that ever happening.
Prevent Cross Contamination — Removing lab coats when moving from production areas helps employees prevent the chance of cross-contamination into other work areas. This is especially effective in Food Processing Facilities.
Fast Removal — If an emergency should arise like a fire or dangerous spill, it only takes a second to pull off that lab coat and put distance between the employee and the hazard.
Clothing Protection — This one seems obvious, but lab coats protect regular clothing from dust, dirt, chemicals, and other contamination on the job site.
Safety — Depending on the work environment, a lab coat with an elastic cuff helps keep sleeves out of any dangerous materials, protect arms from potentially hazardous splashes and away from moving equipment.
Professional Look — A clean lab coat gives off the air of professionalism and makes you look super fancy.
Product Protection — Lab coats can protect the food or pharmaceutical product from foreign particles that are with us every day. Body hair and dry skin, not to mention outside elements that an employee can bring in, like pet hair or grass, dust, and dirt.
Different Types and Styles of Lab Coats
Different industries will require a different style of lab coats. In general, most lab coats are made from blends of cotton and polyester and come with front buttons, one or two chest pockets with a built-in penholder, and one or two lower waist area front pockets. You’ll also often find a back vent, and side slits provided to allow unrestricted movement and access to the side pockets of work pants.
However, there are many different options and styles of lab coats to ensure you have the right garments for your facility and industry. If you’re unsure about what style, fabrics or other garments you need for your business, our team can help!
When choosing the proper lab coat, consider:
● Tight cuffs (knitted or elastic) to keep materials away from contact with employees
● Snap closures on the front for easy removal in case of contamination. More importantly, snaps help avoid a button falling off and into your products
● Proper fit, which is always important for safety
● Appropriate material for hazards to be encountered
● Full-length, knee-length, or waist length
● The use of zippers, pockets, or closures that are required for your type of production or facility. We know that food processing uniforms cannot have pockets.
● Fire retardant or fire resistant (FR) garments
Looking for Lab Coats as Uniforms in Your Workplace?
Great, because Gallagher has developed a full-service Lab Coat Uniform delivery program ensuring your uniforms are picked up and delivered back clean. Whether you’re manufacturing pharmaceutical products, processing or handling raw foods including meats, we understand the requirements for compliance in cleanliness, style, and satisfaction.

Being Green Is Who We Are
“Going green” and sustainability are popular terms thrown around everywhere these days, but what does that really mean? For some people it’s eating organic, while others make sure to recycle and shun the use of plastic bags and straws.
At Gallagher Uniform, these aren’t buzzwords — it’s a way of doing business. And has been for five generations.
The “Green” Gallagher Difference
Fourth and fifth generations of Gallagher’s lead our company and continue the work to leave a legacy. As we approach Earth Day 2019, our commitment to sustainability in our processes, our work, and our leadership is stronger than ever. The company will continue for many generations yet to come, and we plan to leave the environment as intact as possible for them, and for you.
Uniform garments, shop towels and mats from our rental programs are used as long as possible — and then recycled or donated to Goodwill Industries of Central Michigan’s Heartland. Our uniform programs themselves are actually pretty eco-friendly, considering the consolidation and scale of garment cleaning we do. And, we literally keep garments in rotation until they can no longer be repaired, which is a good thing, but there’s more to Gallagher than just the garments we wear and wash.
Wire hangers and their re-use and recycling is one of our biggest day to day projects. We send out 75,000 garments a week on metal hangers, and we ask our customers to turn them back in. We bring them back on hanger racks, then sort through them to determine if they can be re-used. If we can’t reuse the hangers, they go to the scrap yard for recycling.
Leave the Uniform Laundry to Us!
To say we do a lot of laundry would be an understatement. We’re talking about upwards of 130,000 pounds every week. If you were doing that laundry at home in the average home washer, that would be more than 15,000 loads (a week)!
The economies of such massive equipment result in high efficiency and add sustainability by using 250 percent less water and 160 percent less energy per pound of laundry than consumers’ machines. – TRSA.org
Uniform programs mean that employees don’t have to do laundry, and they’re still doing good for the environment, saving energy and water!
As you can imagine, that means there’s a large amount of water, soil, and soap pumped through our facility on a weekly basis. That’s just one of the reasons we’re committed to constantly seeking new ways to protect our environment.
First of all, we’ve upgraded our detergents, degreasers and the base oils used to treat heavily soiled garments to biodegradable formulas. Thanks to our automated systems, we can ensure the mix and quantity of detergents used on each load are precise based on size, soil type, and more. Long story short, only the right amount of detergent is used to keep every garment looking its best. Plus, what we do use is environmentally friendly.
How We Reduce Our Environmental Impact
Speaking of automation, we run our operation as efficiently as possible and avoid using unnecessary resources in order to deliver the best service to you — our customers. Because we’re never satisfied with just “good enough,” we’re always implementing new ways to improve our efficiency and eco-friendliness, including:
- Hot water system: Completely computerized to optimize the creation and use of steam and hot water. Efficient heating and usage reduce energy requirements and waste.
- Chemical injection system: Optimizes the right amount of detergent is utilized in the wash cycle.
- Oil Skimmers: This does just what it sounds like — skims the oils from soiled garments out of our wastewater, with the oil then recycled by a local environmental services provider.
- Lint Shaker-Separator: The lint and suspended solids are separated from wastewater. After the oil and lint have been removed, the water is ready to be re-used.
- Heat Re-claim System: Here the heat from the wastewater is used to warm up fresh water for the next load, a process that drastically decreases energy use.
- Energy Efficient Water Softener: Not only are we using roughly 400 fewer pounds of salt every month, but it also uses less energy.
- LED Lighting: We’ve upgraded all our facility lighting to be LED, which results in increased energy and cost efficiency.
Living Green Every Day
At Gallagher Uniform, we do our part, and you can too. Uniform programs can ensure all your employees are wearing garments that are properly laundered in an environmentally friendly way. With less individual laundry being done at home, fewer chemicals are being used — a total win-win!
Our goal is to operate in a sustainable manner that will preserve the environment not just today, but for generations to come. We operate this way every day and continue to seek out even more advanced means for environmental stewardship and efficiency.

Uniform Programs and Their Role in Employer Safety Programs
The Numbers on Workplace Safety
In 2018 alone, serious, nonfatal workplace injuries amounted to $58.5 billion in direct U.S. workers’ compensation costs. To put it another way, it costs U.S. business more than $1 billion a week. In fact, every seven seconds a worker is injured on the job.
Given those staggering statistics, it goes without saying that safety must remain a top priority for businesses in nearly every sector of the economy — from industrial settings to restaurants. But in the rush to improve worker safety, sometimes the simplest solutions get overlooked — like the uniform.
It’s one of the most basic, yet most essential protective measures that can keep your employees safe throughout the workday. But that’s just one of the ways that uniform rental companies and employer safety programs can become partners in employee safety.
Uniforms Serve as Protection
We offer several different uniform solutions and specialty garments that help reduce the risk of incidents for most work-related hazards. Designed with the proper materials, uniforms can protect against burns, contamination, and chemical spills. Proper garments also make employees easier to see, and things like mats and towels keep work environments clean – and avoid slip and fall accidents.
Fire-resistant clothing — This isn’t just for firefighters. Electrical and arch flash hazards pose threats in many industries, and specifically designed FR uniform garments help prevent avoidable injuries
Cross-contamination — Any potentially undesirable substance that poses a threat to the health or well-being of the building, its inhabitants, and your products is a concern where employee uniforms can help. One way to reduce the risk of cross-contamination is by using scrubs and lab coats, in addition to walk-off mats, microfiber mops and more.
While scrubs and lab coats help prevent the contamination acting as a removable barrier in case of a spill, walk-off mats and microfiber mops trap dirt and pollutants and can help minimize cross contamination and the spread of harmful bacteria.
Uniforms Help Improve Visibility
It is a given that uniforms can protect employees from things like chemical spills and electrical hazards, but what about a lift truck zipping around your docks or through the shop? While it might sound a little insane, it does happen, and there’s no shortage of studies that uniforms can prevent accidents.
Think of construction workers or crossing guards and how they need visibility from traffic in order to do their job — all thanks to an enhanced visible uniform. Then there are people like law enforcement and emergency personnel who can be quickly identified in times of need due in large part to their uniform. Your drivers, maintenance crews and shipping/receiving employees need this type of hi-vis uniform, too.
Safety Mats as Reminders
While not part of a uniform program, mat rental programs can be a big part of your overall facility maintenance plan. Safety message mats play a large role in workplace safety. First of all, pre-printed mats clean dirt, moisture, and contaminants from shoes, which keeps the facilities in top shape. But more than that, those printed messages can warn employees who may be entering a hazardous zone, may need special protection for ears or eyes, or simply serve as a reminder to think and act safely in work environments.
Uniforms or Company Swag as Employee Incentives
How would you like to not only improve the safety of your employees but also incentivize them through their clothes? That’s what one Gallagher customer did, and with great results. We made custom T-shirts, which were handed out to employees who were recognized for safety improvements, for contributing to the safety of themselves and others, and also to recognize the length of time the company has gone without a lost time injury.
Customers can use custom logo apparel, hats, blankets and more for employee incentives, gifts and even corporate giveaways.

Build Your Brand from the Floor Up With Custom Floor, Entrance & Safety Mats
You’re busy doing important, business-type things, so the thought of a floor mat probably isn’t top of mind. But, if you’re interested in marketing your business, ensuring employee safety, and keeping the facility clean, the answer is right under your feet — custom mats.
They’re the first thing that people see when they walk into your business and the last thing on the way out, all while contributing to the overall quality of customer and employee experiences. We know that uniform rental programs help connect your employees and customers to your brand. Mats can do that too!
The Benefits of Mats To Your Business
Mats are more than just something to throw down on the floor, although that’s basically what you have to do with them. Mats go far beyond that and offer a variety of benefits to your business.
Cleaner Floors and Facilities — First and foremost, floor mats can enhance the appearance of your business by keeping dirt, debris, and contaminants from entering the area. Commercial buildings and facilities often have a lot of foot traffic. When the weather is less than ideal, the potential for dirt, ice, rain, and snow to come into your business is inevitable. However, a commercial floor mat will easily trap and hold the liquid and dirt.
Great for Branding and Marketing — Most business owners and leaders are looking for ways to build the company brand, and it can be as easy as placing down a customized mat. Placed at the entrance of your facility, your company message is in front of every person who comes through your doors, every day. You can even use a customized mat to highlight a top-selling product or new service that you’re offering, encouraging more sales of those products.
Improve Safety for Employees and Visitors — One of the main causes of accidents in a business, especially manufacturing facilities, are slip and fall incidents. The last thing you want is an injury that could’ve been avoided by putting down a customized floor mat. Properly placed mats can reduce work-related injury and liability claims, which when you think about it, is still kind of exciting.
Increase Employee Productivity — Tired and sore employees aren’t quite as productive as they could be. By using quality anti-fatigue mats, you’re providing comfort and cushioning to reduce joint stress, prevent tired feet at workstations, and insulate against cold floors. Your employees and their no longer aching backs will thank you.
So Many Mats, So Little Time
When you connect with Gallagher Uniform, you’re given the opportunity to create a mat rental program that’s customized for your business and your business alone. Often customers use several different types of mats and other supplies throughout their facilities, including:
Entrance Mats — Available in a wide range of colors and sizes, these keep dirt, snow, and debris at the door.
Custom Logo Mats — A logo mat specifically designed to fit your needs helps make your corporate image seen to everyone who walks through your doors.Anti-fatigue Mats —The National Safety Council recommends the use of anti-fatigue mats to cushion the feet, reduce fatigue, and lessen stress in the back and legs, all helping to keep employees comfortable.
Scraper Mats — Perfect for outside entrances, slippery inclines, spillage areas, locker rooms, workstations and kitchens, these keep areas clear of debris, oil, grease, and other substances that could cause slip and fall accidents.
Message Mats — Offered in a variety of different themes including Safety, Quality, Greeting, and Bilingual, these are a great way to get a message across and capture dirt and moisture at the same time.
Safety Mats — Need to bring awareness to important safety precautions or warning information needed in certain areas? There’s a pre-printed mat for that.
Choose Gallagher Uniform For Your Custom Mats
Whether you’re looking to increase productivity, provide comfort for employees on the shop floor, enhance your entrances, or simply keep entryways neat, we have just the mat you need. Contact us and make the switch today.
Snowpocalypse What!? Gallagher Keeps on Rolling
This past weeks weather was one for the record books! Bitter cold temperatures, lots of snow and less than desirable driving conditions brought school closings, business closings, government closings and even a state of emergency for the State of Michigan.
Kudos to all of those to kept things moving – braving the roads to get to work, get goods delivered. It certainly was a test of the grit that Michiganders exemplify in the winter.
Gallagher Uniform was one company that kept going through the storm. Was it easy? No – but customers count on us to deliver their uniforms, so they can keep on working too.
We’re proud to say that we were able to maintain all of our routes throughout this week. And we want to thank all of our Gallagher Associates to made it happen.
Rolling Strong All Week
John Gallagher shared, “that’s just what we do, our route team, production associates, admin support, all showed up and supported each other with extra rides, taxi rides, jumper cables, whatever it took. It makes me very proud of the culture we’ve built and the commitment of our associates.”
What about the woman who rides her bike to work?
If you know Gallagher, you know about our long-time associate, Cindi, who rides her bike in to work 365 days a year. Well, she finally conceded to getting a ride to work this week. And we were very happy to make sure she was safe and warm on her way in.
We’re thrilled to see warmer temperatures on the horizon, even if for a short while. And, if old man winter sends more cold and snow our way, you can count on Gallagher Uniform to make sure there is never a worker without pants (or shirts, or jackets) while we’re on the job.

We Stock a Variety of Towels, Perfect for Your Place of Business
Towels are a critical operational component for countless businesses, from mechanic shops to hotels to fitness centers. If your business utilizes towels, you know how much time and energy they consume, not to mention the upfront cost to purchase and maintain them. What you may not realize is that you can use a towel rental service to save time, energy, and money, enjoying superior towels at the same time.
Towel rental programs that offer a wide variety of towels for your business
- Need something that can handle dirt, grime, and oil? Our shop towels are a perfect fit.
- Looking for towels for your gym patrons or hotel guests? Check out our inventory of bath towels.
- Need something more versatile for your restaurant or bar? Our microfiber, kitchen, and bar towels should keep you covered.
- Not sure what the best towel fit is? Give us a call anytime and we can help with that, too!
Economical and Efficient
A towel rental service may not seem like the most economical decision, but stop to think of all your major business investments. Towels are expensive to buy and they are also costly to maintain. Not only that, but you need a LOT more of them than you may think. Now add in the industrial equipment for laundering so many towels and the cost to install and maintain that equipment, not to mention all of the labor costs involved in actually laundering the towels and keeping them stocked, and you are looking at a significant monetary investment.
With a towel rental service, there is no substantial upfront investment for purchasing towels, and the towels are all laundered at Gallagher’s facilities, meaning maintenance costs will never be your problem. We also come by regularly to pick up dirty towels and drop off the clean towels, which keeps you and your staff freed up to focus on the rest of the business.
Expect Consistent, High-Quality Service from Gallagher Uniform
Whether the end users are your mechanics, bar staff, or customers, nobody likes to use a ratty, grungy towel. Low-quality or damaged towels negatively impact staff morale and your customers’ impression; don’t let that be a problem you struggle with! Gallagher’s towel rental service includes regular inspections of rented towels to ensure the utmost in quality and service.
Running a business takes a substantial amount of time and energy. Don’t spend that time and energy worrying about towels; let Gallagher shoulder that responsibility! As a local, family-owned company in operation for over 125 years, we understand that customer service and quality products are critical, and we are committed to providing the best of both. Make the switch to Gallagher today to set up your laundry rental service!
Common Challenges Business Face with a Uniform Rental Company
Choosing to work with a uniform rental company for all the garments needs of your team members is a big decision. It’s like your handing over your car keys to a mechanic and betting the car comes back better than when you left it (as it should). And if it doesn’t, there’s a real problem. That worry is legitimate, as are the common concerns you may have when deciding to work with a uniform rental service. You’re trusting them to do their job and do it well.
At Gallagher Uniform, we find that trust is better established when we are transparent and upfront with our customers, clearing up any potential worries. Once customers understand the method to our madness, the dedicated time we take to ensure they have a positive experience, their load feels a little lighter (and we’re not talking about laundry!).
Here are some common struggles many small, medium and large businesses face when choosing the right uniform rental company – and the Gallagher Uniform Solutions!
“It’s hard to find a rental program that fits all the different employees’ roles in my company.”
That is certainly a challenge. Take an auto dealership for example. They may need branded uniforms for the front desk, sales team, auto technicians, mechanics, etc. And we can’t see someone getting under the hood in a collared polo shirt. This facility would need a wide variety of uniforms, but all branded under their dealership name and car brands. Even from a manufacturing perspective, the facility manager may need different uniforms for general manufacturing, supervisors, ARC rated uniforms, high visibility, the list goes on.
Luckily, companies can look to Gallagher Uniform as a single source for all their employee uniform requirements. Here, you’ll find a selection of uniforms from business casual, industrial work wear, and women’s uniforms. We also carry specialty uniforms like high visibility & fire resistant garments and lab coats, even specialty sizes for big & tall and more. With Gallagher, finding something for everyone is a piece of cake.
“I can never get ahold of the company rep, and I don’t have a lot of time to be dealing with uniform complaints!”
Working with a supplier dedicated to your uniform needs should be easy, not difficult. With Gallagher, you’re assigned a Route Service Representative at the very beginning. Your Route Service Representative makes your first delivery and every scheduled delivery for the weeks to come. We’ve also taken pains to make communication as quick and easy as possible including:
- Service Request Boards that have direct contact information to your Route Service Representative and Route Service Supervisor. There are also service request cards conveniently located for employees to request repairs anytime.
- With G-Trak Mobile, you and your employees have a direct connection to your uniform program. Using our app, you can make uniform size changes, request repairs and replacements, see when your next pick up or delivery is scheduled, and receive up-to-the-minute collection reports.
“I don’t understand the invoices and feel like I’m being taken advantage of.”
That’s a deal breaker. Like any competitive industry, when you feel disrespected, ignored or (gulp) cheated, it’s time to pull the plug. Luckily, our easy to read, transparent statements keep inventories on track and budgets in line. They are always emailed during delivery and provide absolute transparent billing – no hidden charges, ever. We also set a standard that you don’t pay for your garments until you have them to wear!
“I don’t feel confident that the garments will be reliably repaired.”
At Gallagher, your image is our reputation. And we’ve maintained a stellar reputation because we make each and every one of our customers look their best. Should a garment come through the facility that doesn’t pass our quality inspection, we either repair or replace it. In fact, over 90% of all the repairs or replacements are identified by our inspection team before your employees even notice. We inspect all uniforms at three different checkpoint areas and do our final inspection once all the garments are hung in order by the customer. This allows us to “Grade” garments against others within the same company. What’s more, all products are G-Trak Certified, meaning they are scanned out together before they leave, ensuring there are no missing items with us.
Take laundry off the list of things to do and make the switch to Gallagher. With our uniform rental programs, you get clean, quality uniforms delivered every week with no stress and lots of satisfaction. Help your employees feel good from the inside out with top-of-the-line uniforms from the local professionals.
Delivering Uniform Rental Programs for Every Industry, for over 125 years
When we say the word ‘uniform’ what do you picture? Maybe a set of navy blue coveralls? How about a black polo shirt with matching black pleated pants? While we do carry both those items, some uniforms of today are changing. Many workplaces are becoming more flexible in their required attire, while others are dedicated to a more standardized appearance.
We work hard to be aware of uniform trends and innovations, offering the best brand name clothing and flexible uniform programs in our area. Uniforms have a long-standing history in manufacturing, and we’ve been a part of that for 125 years and counting. While trends come and go, our uniform rental programs offer a wide selection of high-quality garments, with service you can count on. For that reason, Gallagher should be the name that comes to mind when you think of uniform rental companies you want to partner with.
Is one type of uniform better than the other? No way. What’s important to our customers is having an array of garment options that fit their industry, their production processes, and all while ensuring their employees have comfortable, high-quality work uniforms delivered complete and on-time.
Uniform Rental Programs Built to Last
We’ve been in this business since 1893 – that doesn’t mean we know everything, but it’s safe to say we’ve had time to perfect what we do. And that’s build solid, trustworthy uniform rental programs for businesses of any shape, size or industry. These programs are the “meat and potatoes” of our company, and they’ve stood the test of time for a few reasons.
- No matter how much we grow and evolve, our focus has always been on customer service excellence.
- We are dedicated to continuous innovation to meet the needs of our growing customer base. We will never sacrifice quality for quantity.
- We secure uniforms from top-tier suppliers that, like us, expect garments to last for more than a few washes, remain comfortable, and help people get their jobs done safely.
- Beyond uniform rental, we also offer facility services such as paper product replenishment, towel rental programs, mat rentals, and more, helping not only your employees look their best, but your facility as well. It’s a package deal.
Direct Sale Garments at Gallagher
If uniform rental programs are the “meat and potatoes” of Gallagher, direct sale garments are dessert. We understand that the corporate look is evolving and changing dress code rules seek to accommodate personal taste and expression, encouraging employees to showcase who they are, while still building a unified appearance of professionalism. Along those lines, we support rental programs with corporate direct sale programs as well.
The Gallagher Uniform catalog reflects our support of both rental work uniform programs, and direct sale garments.
