History & Philosophy


Founded in 1967 as a dry-cleaning business, Nixon rapidly grew into a chain of dry-cleaners. We entered the textile rental market in 1969 and the business quickly evolved from consumer dry-cleaning into business-to-business textile management services.

Today, Nixon is the leading provider of textile rental service to the outpatient healthcare market. From our facilities in Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Virginia, Massachusetts, and Texas.
