Business Council Company Profile:
Brief description and history
Since 1929, when “Doc” Farmer began his family business, a key to our success has been a culture that encourages meaningful, respectful relationships between the company and our employee-partners and the commitment to always do what’s right. This spirit of teamwork, camaraderie and trust has become our most important competitive advantage and is a cornerstone of the Cintas culture.
By relying on Cintas to help keep them at their professional best, public agencies receive an excellent value when it comes to depth and quality of offerings, cost-effectiveness and customer service. Let Cintas be the single source you depend on for solutions that help you stay ready™ with an efficient clean, safer workplace and positive image.

Cintas provides these highly specialized products and services to over one million customers
An example of a government-related project that was innovative - something that helped solve a problem or contributed a solution.
We have helped several public agencies save time and money by utilizing our cooperative contract with U.S. Communities/Omnia Partners. Our depth of product and service offerings have allowed agencies to streamline their buying process by consolidating to a single vendor for multiple categories.
New technologies being developed or adopted that will have an impact on the way products and/or services are delivered
Our TruCount™ system reassures customers with ultimate accountability. Every visit, we’ll scan all uniforms turned in for laundering and provide a pickup report showing the number of garments turned in by wearer — so they know exactly how many will be laundered and returned on the following visit. For even greater detail, we can also provide a comprehensive garment summary report. This leads to no more hand-counting or concerns about missing uniforms.
