California Linen Service is an active member of the following organizations.
Textile Rental Services Association of America
California Linen Service is a proud member of TRSA. Our company President, Brian O'Neil,
served on the Board of Directors for 6 consecutive years.
Who is TRSA?
TRSA is the world's largest textile rental industry association representing more than 1,000 industrial laundry facilities in 24
countries. The membership of TRSA represents a cross-section of the industry: including some of the world's largest textile rental companies, along with numerous mid-size and one-plant operations.
It is TRSA's mission to advance the professionalism of its members and promote their success through government
advocacy, education, marketing and business enhancing services. TRSA is committed to addressing the changing needs of
the industry, and our members, while striving to surpass industry standards by uniting members through a progressive organization.
- Present the industry's position to the government.
This objective is accomplished by TRSA acting as a resource to government for appropriate legislation and regulation, lobbying to encourage the government to accept the
industry's position, and protecting the industry from adverse legislation and regulation.
- Provide education services. These services encompass a wide range of information and include documenting and
making available the accumulated knowledge and experience of the industry through publications, videotapes, and online seminars.
- Provide a forum for the exchange of ideas.
This goal includes providing opportunities for vendors or competitors to meet to discuss mutual problems and make potential customer contacts, keeping members informed of new
developments in the industry, and forecasting future problems to be faced by the industry.
- Encourage the industry to learn and respond to customer needs. This target includes providing market
information on needed services by market segments as well as the need for new products and services; helping the
industry respond to customer needs in order to capture a larger share of customers' dollars spent on relevant
functions (that is, rental vs. disposables or do-it-yourself or do without); and assist members in improving sales
volume and penetration of markets through sales training, customer retention and online seminars and programs.

In 1979, a group of independent business owners united in a common vision. Their commitment was
to help textile service companies like theirs operate more competitively and profitably. To achieve their goal, they organized a purchasing association now known as CSCNetwork.
CSCNetwork is more than a buying group and more than a marketing alliance. CSC is the best
resource any independently owned and operated industrial launderer can access to compete more effectively. That is why they work with chosen vendors to get California Linen Services and their
customers the best products, and pricing our industry has to offer!
To help us compete more effectively in the local markets, CSCNetwork also provides a wide array of training programs in
areas of sales, service, management, and production. California Linen Services' ongoing participation in these training
programs shows its commitment to consistently provide quality products and unbeatable service to its customers
These innovative resources provide California Linen Services with the purchasing power of a national chain along with
the personal service associated with a locally owned independent company like yours!
