Star Wipers is one of the largest graders of healthcare & hospitality linen supply rags in the USA. Unlike the majority of rag manufacturers who rely on offshore producers, we have our own in-house sorting and cutting operations. Because of this, we have the ability to control quality & provide flexibility to meet our customer’s unique demands.
Our teams work with over 7 million lbs. of rags a year! Due to our steady supply & in-house resources, we can provide both cost savings & product availability that outweigh the competition.
First, the sorting process begins with thousands of textiles on conveyor belts. As they pass, these textiles are organized according to material & color. Soon they are passed to the cutting department to be sized for their intended purpose.
Furthermore, our cutting operation enables us to buy materials cut and/or uncut. This is especially beneficial when supplies get tight. As a result, our rags are always cut to tighter specs than our competitors, which means less waste for the end user.
