Cintas Named Exemplary Employer by State of Massachusetts

Governor Romney Presents Award at State House Ceremony

BOSTON , October 27, 2003 - At a State House ceremony, Governor Mitt Romney presented Cintas Corporation's Pittsfield facility with the 2003 Massachusetts Exemplary Employer Award for its record of hiring people with disabilities. The ceremony was part of the state's "National Disability Employment Awareness Month," a program managed by the Governor's Commission on Employment of People with Disabilities.

"We're honored to be recognized by the Governor," said Cintas General Manager, Tim Knoll. "The award reflects the culture of our company and the character of our employee-partners in Massachusetts , as well as at all of our Cintas locations," he added.

For years, Cintas has been working with Berkshire Vocational Services, the Massachusetts Rehabilitation Council, and the Massachusetts Department of Mental Retardation to provide opportunities to people with disabilities. Cintas' Pittsfield facility now provides career training opportunities to 10 people whose job responsibilities help bring them into the mainstream workforce.

"Companies like Cintas truly make a difference in people's lives," said Marie Trottier, Co-Chairperson for the Governor's Commission on Employment of People with Disabilities. "We congratulate them and urge other companies to follow their great example," she said.

Cintas' Pittsfield facility is one of four Cintas operations in Massachusetts . The company employs 430 people in the state.

Established in 1988, the Exemplary Employer Award was created to recognize companies that exceed Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) mandates for hiring, retaining, and integrating people with disabilities into their business. Winners are selected by the Governor's Commission on Employment of People with Disabilities, a panel that includes 16 voting members. Cintas was one of 16 companies in the state to receive the award this year.
