VAN ORMY, Texas — Aramark Uniform Services is opening a 52,000-square-foot energy-efficient laundry facility in South Bexar County.
The facility has the capacity to process 400,000 pounds of goods weekly. Previously the Aramark facility in Dallas provided the San Antonio market with uniform services. Aramark invested in the local laundry facility to reduce its fleet vehicles’ mileage and fuel consumption. They estimate conserving about 32,000 gallons of fuel yearly. The environmentally friendly plant will be reducing daily clean water consumption between 15-30 percent with a reusable water system. Estimates are that the facility will save between 1.5 million and 3 million gallons of water yearly. A heat re-claimer will be reducing the plant’s gas usage by 25 percent with an estimated yearly saving of about 3 million cubic feet of natural gas.
