Johnston, S.C. and Manchester, UK -- As a result of the recent strategic partnership between UK textile manufacturer and distributor Vision Support Services and Riegel Linen, America's favorite table linen manufacturer,CLEAN will offer Riegel's Murata Air Jet (MJS) "Premier" as its spun polyester table linen offering. As a leading linen rental and laundry service provider to a broad range of hotels and restaurants throughout the United Kingdom, CLEAN will market Riegel's Premier table clothes and napkins to facilities looking for the previously elusive linens that look great and last a long time. Premier guarantees satisfaction with its soft hand, durability, and extensive color assortment.

"We are extremely pleased to strengthen our relationship with Vision by adding the Riegel Premier MJS spun polyester table linen to our portfolio," said CLEAN CEO Jason Miller. "We've tested a number of products on the market and found Premier to be a great performer. CLEAN makes the business of laundry for hotels as efficient, trouble free and reliable as possible, and that's exactly why Premier is the perfect linen to add to our table linen product line."

While providing excellent cover at 7.2 ounces per square yard, Premier also offers a more natural feel and a color-fast performance that will suit most dining establishments. It also boasts minimal shrinkage and excellent stain resistance.

"We are delighted that CLEAN has selected Premier as its spun-polyester table linen for hotels and restaurants across the UK," said Riegel Linen VP Chris Gowdy. "CLEAN understands that first impressions are lasting impressions, and that no restaurant or banquet facility is about the food alone. Beautifully laundered and presented table linens play a vital part in creating that lasting impression, and as such, Riegel Premier was manufactured to be the perfect complement to any table top. When it comes to striking strategic alliances in the UK, our partner truly has the 'Vision' we need to be successful.

"This strategic partnership is a true win/win/win benefiting most importantly the customers outside of North America and the Caribbean who now have access to the best spun product on the market; and also strengthening our respective companies by combining our 328 years of continuous textile manufacturing expertise," Gowdy said.

Laurie Thomas, managing director of Vision Support Services, said he too is pleased that Riegel is bringing its best-selling products to the UK market.

"CLEAN takes great pride in meeting the commercial and operational needs of its customers," Thomas said. "With CLEAN'S 130 years' experience in the linen and rental laundry service, we knew that Premier would be the perfect addition to their linen rental service. The UK market has long been after a table linen product that keeps its color and shape and is easy to launder. Premier is the best product on the market today that will suit these requirements.

"Today our relationship with Riegel is strong, and we are eager to introduce more of their product line to our customers," he added.
