“We were able to finalize a contract within a very short time frame despite a myriad of challenges that had to be overcome. Every step of the way, [AbilityOne] went the extra mile to quickly resolve any issue including the need for a very quick turn-around time and the requirement that the clothing be cleaned inside a restricted area.”
