More than five million people go to work every day in a Cintas uniform including employees from McDonald's, W Hotels, Royal Caribbean and many more.
Now, with Carhartt Apparel available for rent exclusively from Cintas, your employees will appreciate the durability and unparalleled quality they receive from Carhartt clothing when on the job, while enjoying the laundry, repair and replacement benefits that accompany a Cintas Uniform Rental Program.
But just like work uniforms, a one-size-fits-all approach to an apparel program doesn't always fit. That's why with Cintas you can lease, rent, buy or have custom uniforms designed to meet your workwear requirements.
