Cintas Corporation, a world leader in corporate identity uniforms, announced a new commercial partnership with The CALVELEX GROUP to expand Cintas’ uniform design, production and support services in Europe. The new partnership enables Cintas to accommodate increasing demand for corporate apparel services in Europe and further elevate customer service and satisfaction for existing clientele in the U.K., including Marriott, Hilton and Four Seasons.

“We are thrilled to grow Cintas’ presence in Europe and, for the first time, offer inventory, distribution and manufacturing capabilities at the local level,” said Rob Pollock, Senior Director of Sales, Cintas Hospitality UK Limited. “By increasing the availability and breadth of our products and services in Europe, we can more quickly and efficiently support local hoteliers as they plan, create and implement uniform programs that ensure brand consistency with a regional flair.”

Cintas’ European uniform business specializes in custom-designed uniform programs for four- and five-star hotels. The company’s team of international style consultants is led by Haley Sovitch, who brings clients years of experience and expertise in fashion design, development, production and account management. Prior to joining Cintas, Sovitch worked with multiple renowned designers, including Yves Saint Laurent, Jasper Conran and Jean Paul Gaultier.

“Cintas’ expansion in Europe allows us to take our client relationships to new heights,” said Todd McKeown, Vice President Global Hospitality and Gaming, Cintas. “By further expanding our capabilities overseas, we can better serve our U.S. clientele as they assert their brands and enhance their operations in Europe, while also bringing a new offering to European brands.”

“We are pleased to partner with Cintas on this initiative in Europe,” said Cesar Araujo, Owner of The CALVELEX GROUP. “With their experience and relationships in the hospitality industry, they are ideally positioned for success, and we look forward to supporting their growth through our cutting-edge technological equipment and production processes, punctual deliveries and certified management system.”
