CELEBRATING 75 YEARS OF SERVICE
From the ashes we overcome.
Then disaster struck when a devastating fire destroyed the plant on June 25, 2001. At the time of the fire, Division was on track to produce 23 million pounds of linen while employing 190 employees. Division was able to fulfill all contracts by outsourcing the linen to many area laundries. Cecilia made the courageous decision to rebuild, so like the Phoenix, Division rose from the ashes and opened a brand new plant in 2003.
The rebuilding process gave Patrick R. Garcia, Peter and Cecilia’s son, the chance to reflect on his father’s wisdom that had built a very successful business. Peter instilled in his employees that there was only one kind of service, “Quality Service,” and that meant providing the best workmanship in cleaning and pressing and always keeping your word to deliver on time. Patrick took over the role of President in 2010.
A family business.
Today, Division continues to grow while adding a third generation of family members to the team, Patricia, Patrick A, and Theresa. They are committed to continuing the tradition and service started by Peter G. Garcia. A tradition that has a foundation built in the past but is always looking forward to the future.
