Business services provider Cintas Corporation ( CTAS ) recently became a Centennial Sponsor of the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) as part of its continued focus to improve workplace safety. The collaboration is anticipated to create a long-term mutually beneficial business relationship and devise creative solutions to solve industry challenges.

As part of this initiative, Cintas will be in constant touch with 35,000 ASSE safety professionals to gain first-hand knowledge of the various safety issues faced on the ground. This would then enable Cintas' subject experts to share technical know-how of the best practices on the field and further develop other safety programs that are not part of the safety manual.

Through these initiatives, Cintas is likely to promote safe workplace practices, which in turn will benefit the industry as a whole. Cintas will also sponsor the ASSE Award for Innovation in Occupational Safety Management to recognize efforts by safety, health and environmental professionals in creating innovative safety solutions for the overall betterment of the industry.

Cintas continues to deliver organic growth through superior execution of its operational plans. The company witnessed top-line growth across all the segments in the just-reported quarter and expects to continue this bull run in the coming quarters as well, albeit at a moderate pace. We also remain encouraged about such enriching ideas of the company.

Based in Cincinnati, Ohio, Cintas provides specialized services to businesses of all types throughout North America. The company designs, manufactures and implements corporate identity uniform programs, and provides entrance mats, restroom supplies, promotional products and first aid and safety products for diversified businesses.

Cintas presently has a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy). Other companies in the industry that warrant a look include McGraw Hill Financial, Inc. ( MHFI ), G&K Services Inc. ( GK ) and Alliance Data Systems Corporation ( ADS ), each carrying a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy).
