After deciding to specialize in the healthcare, hospitality, and fine dining segments, Monarch was looking for a partner to take over their industrial and food and beverage accounts. It chose Wildman as that partner because of the shared values as a family owned and locally operated organization providing a high quality level of service to customers and a strong commitment to employees and the community. This partnership allows both parties to play to their strengths.
Wildman has already began providing service from the South Bend facility on Foundation Drive. The company currently operates out of Warsaw, with depot locations in Fort Wayne and Indianapolis. The SouthBend facility will be the fourth location for Wildman.
For customers of Monarch Linen, business service will continue without disruption. The Wildman team looks forward to meeting Monarch Linen customers and learning how they can best serve new clientele.
No job displacements are foreseen. Wildman will be taking on several team members from Monarch’s current team in order to continue to best serve customers. For the customers, this means continued quality service from a familiar face. Both Monarch and Wildman employees have been working tirelessly to make the transition as smooth as possible.
“The expansion into the South Bend market is something our team has been wanting to do for years,” said Josh Wildman, CEO of Wildman. “When we met with the leaders of Monarch and learned about their customer base and market penetration, we knew it was the right fit. We’re thrilled for the opportunity to continue to serve these customers.”
