UniFirst - Best Performing Company by Boston Globe & BBJ
May '11
UniFirst, a North American leader in the supply and servicing of uniforms, workwear, and protective clothing, has been named a "best performing" company for 2010 by two nationally recognized publications, The Boston Globe and Boston Business Journal (BBJ).

In being named to "The Boston Globe 100" and to BBJ's "Massachusetts' Top 150 Companies," UniFirst was recognized for its notable financial performance in 2010, with respect to growth in revenues, profits, return on shareholders equity, and stock price performance.

Only 90 companies met the criteria to earn a spot on the Globe 100 this year; last year only 82 qualified--an indication of the particularly challenging economic environment companies had to deal with in recent years. UniFirst, however, has earned a listing on the Globe 100 ever since it was first published 23 years ago; a distinction shared by only three other Massachusetts based companies -- Raytheon, TJX, and Eaton Vance Corporation.

In noting his company's financial achievements, UniFirst President and CEO Ron Croatti said, "It underscores the high caliber of employee Team Partners we have working for us all across North America. It's because of their unwavering dedication to UniFirst and to providing excellent customer service that we continue to be routinely counted among the best financial performers in corporate America."

UniFirst, a North American leader in the supply and servicing of uniforms, workwear, and protective clothing, outfits more than 1.5 million workers each business day. UniFirst also offers Facility Service programs including floor mats, mops, and restroom products.
