BUFFALO, N.Y. — The sale of Buffalo operations will protect more than 100 jobs at a local hospital linen service, despite a bankruptcy and shutdown of operations elsewhere.

Clarus Linen Systems sold its Grider Street location in June to Pittsburgh-based Clean Textile Systems (CleanCare), while plants in South Carolina and Georgia were sold to another buyer. Upstate New York sites in Troy and Syracuse, where the company was based, will shut down Friday after the company failed to find a buyer.

Clarus filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection late last year. According to Syracuse.com/The Post Standard, company executives cited poor performance of the company’s parent, Centerstone Linen Services.   You can read the full story on Buffalo Business First's website.
