"The international expansion of Cintas' operations enhances our commitment to our current customer base while enabling us to meet the needs of new customers in these regions," says Lance Bates, president, Cintas Global Accounts and Strategic Markets Division. "Whether it is a business in Hong Kong, Zurich, Buenos Aires, or Chicago, global businesses want their guests to have the same impression of the brand at each location. As our customers break into new markets, they can look forward to enjoying the same level of high quality service and dependability throughout the world that they have enjoyed from Cintas in the U.S."
New sales and service offices in Hong Kong and Macau opened in April. Cintas has plans to expand in additional markets throughout the world including Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East. Each region will have a sales, service, and design center staffed by local employees focused on extending Cintas' direct sales of image and fashion uniforms. A global design team will work closely with regional designers to ensure local cultural style considerations are incorporated into programs while maintaining a consistent global fashion brand.
In addition to design resources, local sales and service offices will also provide sourcing, distribution, and administration of accounts. This ensures that each customer receives the same high quality Cintas products and reliable service they are accustomed to receiving in the U.S.
