G&K Services, Inc. announced that its manufacturing facility in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic was awarded a Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production (WRAP) Gold Certificate of Compliance. The certification reflects the facility’s compliance with the WRAP Principles, which are based on local law and workplace regulations, generally accepted international workplace standards, and a commitment to workplace safety and the environment.

G&K’s facility in the Dominican Republic manufactures work apparel products, which the company uses to supply its uniform rental and uniform direct sale businesses. The facility produces more than three million garments annually.

“Our entire team made a concentrated effort to earn the WRAP certification”

“Our entire team made a concentrated effort to earn the WRAP certification,” said Dick Stutz, Senior Vice President of Operations and Sourcing. “Achieving this recognition demonstrates G&K’s commitment to ethical behavior, workplace safety and environmental stewardship. This is an important facility for G&K and the high quality uniforms that our team in the Dominican Republic produces are a key part of our ability to meet our customers’ needs.”

WRAP is an independent, objective, non-profit team of global social compliance experts dedicated to promoting safe, lawful, humane, and ethical manufacturing around the world through certification and education.
