The linen rental and laundry service was founded in 1914 and is based in Nashua, New Hampshire. It provides uniforms, towels and other rental linens to thousands of clients across New England and has distribution centers in Fall River, MA and Boston. Crown’s president Chris Spilios hopes to fold the Fall River distribution facility into the new plant to help centralize their operations in Massachusetts. The plant will be completed by mid-2014, and could bring as many as 100 jobs within five years.
Dacon will be working alongside J.K. Holmgren Engineering’s civil engineering team and American Laundry Systems of Haverhill on the new plant. With a 20-acre site, Crown can expand its facilities as their needs grow.
“It’s going to look gorgeous,” Brockton Ward 7 City Councilor Chris MacMillan told local newspaper The Enterprise.
