Ameritex Services joins the Ecotex Service Group

OMAHA, NEBRASKA (January 3, 2022) – Ecotex Healthcare Linen Service Corporation (“Ecotex”) is pleased to announce that it has acquired Ameritex Services (“Ameritex”), the leading provider of quality healthcare laundry and linen services to hospitals, medical clinics, and long-term care facilities across Nebraska.

Following the acquisition, Ameritex, an Omaha based multigenerational service business, owned by the father and son team of Mark and Brad Goldstrom, strengthens its service capabilities for the hospitals it supports across Nebraska. Together, the companies improve their market leadership in Iowa, Nebraska, and Kansas.

Both Ecotex and Ameritex have long histories as family owned and operated businesses, setting a strong foundation of cultural alignment and shared organizational values.  Ecotex will bring required capital and specialized knowledge to support new, innovative, and smarter linen solutions for the growing base of customers across the mid-west region of the United States.  “With our expanding presence in the Midwest region Ecotex will provide greater regional back-up processing redundancy, and improved administrative efficiency”, said Bryan Bartsch, the President of Ecotex, adding, “going forward we will make the necessary long-term reinvestments into plant and infrastructure to help our customers provide a safe, comfortable environment for patient care while we ensure optimum cost and service quality of their essential linen programs.”

Ecotex will fund a multimillion-dollar, multi-year plan to expand the capacity of the Ameritex laundry plant in Omaha. This sets forth a very exciting new phase for Ameritex as we begin to recapitalize and modernize the business and set it up for continued long term success.

Brad Goldstrom, who is joining the Ecotex team as a senior leader said, “This helps Ameritex position for the future”. Brad will continue to run Ameritex day-to-day operations alongside of his existing management team.

As with all important business decisions, we will work closely with our clients, partners, and employees to make the integration process as seamless as possible. Throughout the integration, the two companies are committed to ensure our healthcare customers continue to receive the same high-quality laundry and linen service programs they have come to expect.

Ameritex will continue to operate under the Ameritex name as a subsidiary of Ecotex.
