Illinois Cleaners was established in 1911 as full service cleaner, launderer, and furrier. Owned by an ambitious engineer named George Neumark. Illinois Cleaners was a healthy cleaning operation serving the suburbs of Chicago until the 1960s.
In the '60s the drycleaning industry entered the “polyester years.” During this era, the number of dry cleaner went from 40,000 to 18,000 in a four-year period. It was during this time that the Marberry family seized an opportunity to enter the Cleaning business. William Marberry and his four sons acquired many of the leading cleaners in the Western Suburbs of Chicago.; Continuing healthy growth in retail and delivery cleaning over the next thirty years, Marberry – Illinois Cleaners became the largest cleaner in Illinois.
Marberry Cleaners and Launderers is now a third-generation cleaning company, with an emphasis on drycleaning home delivery and commercial laundry accounts. Moving forward, our goal is to provide customers with a consistent and reliable cleaning product day-in and day-out. We have consciously partnered with the best suppliers in the cleaning chain to satisfy these goals and our customers.
