Our Mission

CSCNetwork's Mission is to Help Members Compete and Profitably Grow Their Businesses!

CSCNetwork's Vision is to Compete on VALUE with HONESTY and INTEGRITY.

CSCNetwork is more than a buying group and more than a marketing alliance. CSCNetwork is the best resource any independently owned and operated linen or industrial laundry can access to compete more effectively. We work with select vendors to obtain the best products, service, and pricing our industry has to offer. We also offer full service training and marketing support to help our members compete more effectively in local markets or network for multi-location account sales throughout the nation.

History

Central States Corporation began as a cooperative in 1979, was changed to a stock company in 1985, hired a full-time administrative manager in 1991 and added a marketing resource director in 1997. In 1998, to emphasize the focus that Central States Corporation is a national buying group, the name was changed to CSCNetwork. We quickly grew and now have more than 175 members receiving the industries highest discounts with more than 75 vendors.
