Ace ImageWear turns 80
Jan '12
Ace ImageWear is an industry leader since 1932 in uniform rental and facility services. In celebration of Ace ImageWear's 80th anniversary, customers who sign with Ace during 2012 will receive 80% off their first invoice.

Let Ace design a system that's “right-sized” for the business. Ace ImagWear serves clients in all types of industries, including automotive sales and repair, manufacturing, distribution, food service, transportation, grocery and more.

Ace ImageWear will wash, deliver and maintain top quality uniforms such as shirts, pants, coveralls, jackets and safety apparel. In addition, Ace ImageWear will fill all restroom supply needs and provide floor mat cleaning. Any business owner looking to upgrade or improve their company image should call Ace ImageWear today and find out why so many companies are doing business on a first-name basis with Ace.

As the Great Depression ravaged America, Eddie Heilman, a local boxer in Kansas City who fought under the name “Ace”, invested savings from his prize money to open Ace Linen Service & Laundry. Heilman and wife Clara provided cleaning services from their basement before moving to permanent space on Truman Road in Kansas City.

80 years and a name change later, Ace ImageWear has now fought through the Great Recession and emerged stronger than ever. The company has grown from a local Kansas City laundry in 1932 to a large regional provider in 2012 expanding into Dallas, Beaumont, and Houston Texas.

By focusing on customer service and living up to their founder's principle of always doing business “on a first-name basis”, Ace is committed to growth with a purpose.

Ed Heilman, the founder's grandson and current CEO, said “Working with family means we have the same motivation, which is to service the customer better than the national guys can. Ace ImagWear wants to develop business relationships with customers and support them long-term."
