Values & History

Martinizing has over 60 years of innovation and leadership experience within the dry-cleaning industry. Our system was developed in 1949 when Henry Martin recognized that it was feasible for smaller, full-service dry-cleaning plants to provide quick service cost-effectively. That began Martinizing, the pioneer of on-premise; quick dry-cleaning service and more than 60-year history of the Martinizing System.
