Connecting with consumer needs

Consumers of textile services are primarily hospital materials managers, environmental services professionals and Infection Preventionists responsible for the day-to-day management of the hospitals contracted laundry service provider and/or the contracted linen distribution services in the hospital. 

Even though these professionals or their direct-reports do not preform textile services themselves, there are questions where textile care expertise is essential. The ALM Consumer membership provides the perfect resource at a most reasonable cost.
