In 1944, a small linen supplier in Vernon, California got its start by renting uniforms to local businesses. A few years later, the two Roberts brothers began selling sanitary supplies off the back of their delivery truck… and the company was forever changed. From those humble beginnings, Vernon Industrial Uniform and Linen Supply grew into Southern California’s leading independent wholesaler of janitorial and maintenance supplies — Vernon Sanitary Supply.
In 1972, another Los Angeles business was founded to distribute paper and packaging products to local grocery stores. Over four decades later, that business — Regal Trading Company — emerged as an unmistakable leader in providing food processing, supermarket, bakery, industrial, and janitorial supplies throughout the western United States.
