Big Island and Oahu operations of United Laundry Services Inc. of Honolulu have joined with UMF Corporation’s expansion of the PerfectCLEAN Infection Prevention Network.

ULS was co-founded by Vicky Cayetano, former Hawai’i first lady. The company provides commercial laundry services to a large portion of Hawai’i’s healthcare and hospitality markets.

“When presented with the opportunity, combined with the added local support of UMF’s distributor Encompass Group, we immediately saw the advantages of becoming part of the PC/Network,” said Cayetano, ULS president and CEO. “Our healthcare customers can rest assured they’re receiving from ULS the best HAI protection and support through our program, which is headed by John Ross, United’s PC Manager. We firmly believe this will benefit Hawaii’s population and strengthen medical care.”

In 2012, the PC/Network was formed by UMF to work towards the reduction of healthcare-associated infections.

Laundries apart of the PC/Network are provided branded products, training and support.


“The PC/Network continues to grow and ULS — with its first-class reputation, insight and experience in healthcare laundry — is a premier and welcome addition to our expanding roster,” said George Clarke, CEO of UMF Corporation.


Bill Worthy, UMF Corporation’s National Account manager, noted how quickly Cayetano and her team understood the positive effects and economics provided by employing the PerfectCLEAN solutions and the training programs provided.

“We look forward to building upon the business relationship with ULS and in working with Vicky and her team,” he said.
