LAS VEGAS — Strategically located for easy access to the Las Vegas Strip to service all of the major shows and entertainers, Tiffany Couture Cleaners’ 7,500-square-foot production facility in a former warehouse building at 5981 McLoud provides a new and unique design to allow for the growing needs of the costume, bridal and couture-style work performed there, as well as an ever-expanding pick-up and delivery service. Owners are Dan and Judy Del Rossi.

It is the exclusive cleaning facility for all Cirque du Soleil shows, and specializes in unique costume maintenance and restoration for local and global clientele, as well as couture fashions recommended by Vegas’ elite boutiques. But it also provides high-quality drycleaning, shirt laundry and home laundry services, serving two area drop stores. Fur cleaning, glazing, repairs and leather cleaning are done on premises.

Upgrades included a new and larger bridal lounge; a secure, climate-controlled fur vault; administrative offices; team members’ break area and training facility; and parking for team members.

“With the constant thought of team members’ comfort in mind, the new facility allows for climate-controlled break room and kitchen area as well as mark-in and alterations workrooms,” the owners write in their nomination. “The production area provides for employee comfort and great airflow, with a 21-foot ceiling, two large swamp coolers, and two SonicAire fans.”

Equipment for the plant was purchased direct from manufacturers, including Union, Sankosha, Unipress, Hi-Steam, White Conveyors, Metalprogetti, Continental Girbau, B&C Technologies, Parker Boiler Co., RSD and Atlas Copco, among others. Supplies come from United Cleaners Supply.

America’s Best Cleaners, an independent certification organization of which Tiffany Couture Cleaners is a member, designed the plant layout. Mark Sandberg was architect.
