The company was also involved in the industrial laundry industry. In 1961, under Leighton Rosenthal, son of Samuel Rosenthal, Cleveland Overall became the publicly held Work Wear Inc. The name was changed in 1976 to Work Wear Corporation, Inc. Paine Webber Capital, a subsidiary of Paine Webber Group, Inc. of New York City, acquired Work Wear in 1986.
