Corporate Profile

Nicely folded laundry on a conveyor belt

K‑Bro was founded in 1954 as Stork Diaper Service and later grew to meet the needs of the healthcare and hospitality industries. To better reflect the company’s evolving role and in honor of its founders – the Kinasewich brothers, the name was changed to K‑Bro Linen Systems Inc. in 1984. Today, K‑Bro is the largest provider of laundry and linen services in Canada meeting the needs of healthcare, hospitality and other commercial sectors. We employ 1600 people across Canada at processing facilities located in Victoria, Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Regina, Toronto, Montreal and Quebec City.

K‑Bro provides an extensive menu of services that go beyond basic laundry services. These include reusable OR pack services (KOR Services), resident personal clothing programs, specialty linen purchasing, various textile testing and extensive customer site-based services, including floor-to-floor distribution and linen room management.

We have resisted the temptation to diversify into other activities, choosing instead to develop the finest laundry and linen service programs available. As a result, we are the leaders in the industry and are proud of our distinct reputation.
