AC Uniforms has conducted business with the medical field long before the medical uniforms end was added to our existing business. In addition, we began working with the marketing department of Local Health Systems in Lubbock, Texas furnishing embroidery shirts, jackets, caps and more. Then, we quickly expanded to their Security and Food Services supplying logos for their existing uniforms.

A Message From Our President

We have owned and operated our own embroidery equipment from the very beginning and continue to do so today. Our business prior to September 11, 2001 only offered embroidery and silk screening products in Plainview, Texas. After the 9/11 attack, we found out quickly that our business was more of a luxury than a necessity, so this influenced our bottom line tremendously.

I was a single mother of three boys. I employed twelve other women, and a majority of them were also single mothers. I did not have the heart to lay them off. Instead, I traveled with two of my sales ladies to an Advertising Specialty Institute convention trying to come up with other ideas to continue to keep everyone employed.

At this convention, I was introduced entirely to the medical uniforms industry. When I went home, I immediately realized that our area needed a good supplier, and especially, in the Lubbock, Texas area. Within two months of adding uniforms to my existing business, I opened a store in Lubbock, Texas. Then, I began traveling to other hospitals outside of our area to sell scrubs.

AC Uniforms has incorporated many innovations throughout the years in order to accommodate the changes this industry has seen, and we will continue to do so. We now travel into Oklahoma, New Mexico and all over the Texas area. Through doing many shows, we have created many friendships. We also have been saddened that many of our older friends working with the auxiliaries have since passed away, and we miss them dearly. We actively strive to maintain a strong bond with all of our clients.
