Cintas Designs Award-Winning Uniforms

Chicago, Illinois - The National Accounts Sales Division of Cintas (Nasdaq: CTAS) outfits two of the "Top Ten Image of the Year" winners: the Millennium Biltmore Hotel and Athlete's Foot. Honorees received the uniform industry's highest honor at an awards ceremony held recently in Las Vegas. The Career Apparel Institute, a division of the National Association of Uniform Manufacturers and Distributors (NAUMD), produces the national competition.

"We are thrilled that the NAUMD once again recognizes the talent of our world class team of designers," said Bill Cronin, president of Cintas' National Account Sales Division. "This honor confirms that Cintas is not just selling uniforms to our customers, rather we are helping each and every customer enhance their company's image, professionalism, and sense of pride."

Cintas created winning designs for:

  • The Millennium Biltmore Hotel, an establishment that offers a traditional hotel experience in the contemporary atmosphere of downtown Los Angeles. The hotel wanted a uniform program that illustrated their uniqueness with custom touches and an old world appeal. Uniforms for the door and bell staff were inspired by the Art Deco period and set the tone for the rest of the program, which features dark city colors mixed with a rich burgundy and a bright white.
  • The Athlete's Foot, a chain of stores that sells athletic shoes. Company leaders wanted unforgettable uniforms made in the styles and fabrics used in active sportswear. They achieved that goal with Cintas designs that feature polo shirts for managers and football style jerseys for U.S. sales people. These designs help create a truly memorable corporate identity for the company.

The Image of the Year Awards honor end-users and suppliers who have effectively used career apparel programs to project a desired image or meet a stated goal. Companies are judged on the basis of image projection, neatness, functionality, usage of color, originality, and coordination of garments with accessories.

Cintas Corporation is the leader in the corporate identity uniform industry providing uniforms to a wide variety of businesses nationwide. The Company also provides a wide range of outsourcing services including entrance mats, sanitation supplies, cleanroom services, and first aid and safety products and services. Cintas is a publicly held company traded over Nasdaq National Market under the symbol CTAS, and is a Nasdaq-100 Company and component of the Standard & Poor's 500 Index. The Company is set to achieve 34 consecutive years of growth in sales and earnings.
