Emerald Textiles, a San Diego based industrial laundry for health care providers, is expanding into Los Angeles.

The company said its new service center will provide greater coverage and a larger physical presence for both existing and prospective customers.

Founded in 2010 and using the most advanced laundry cleaning machines, Emerald said it saves more than 40 million gallons of water and 750,000 therms annually.

The company’s first laundry center in Otay Mesa was recognized by both San Diego Gas & Electric and the California Public Utilities Commission for its advanced design and energy efficiency.

Among its customers are Scripps Health, Sharp Healthcare, UC San Diego Health System, Eisenhower Medical Center, Kaiser Permanente, and St. John’s Health Center, Santa Monica.
