Metal presents a problem on many fronts. Reclaimed rags from clothing discards have the highest tendency to contain metals. Whether it be a staple, snap or zipper, there’s always a minor chance that metal could be present.
Because each wiper is cut by hand, human error can come into play. That’s specifically why we have multiple packing lines that employ state-of-the-art metal scanners to avoid the potential for metal contamination. Non-wovens, mill ends, linens and specialty items will not be affected.
To make it a no-brainer, we go the distance so there is not a concern. For FDA or critical wiping needs, we have the ability to offer you a lower cost per wiper while eliminating the fear that metal is present.
You can also check out our resources page for more info about our metal scanning practices.

Mednik Riverbend thrives and specializes in supply line distribution. We have over a hundred various retail and wholesale partners throughout the United States.

Not being Amazon with millions of offerings, we felt a simple and concise product mix was the best way to go. That being said, we purchase from large numbers of vendors and have the same tremendous buying power of any and all of their offerings. So, if you are looking and don’t see what you need, simply call or email us and let us go to work.
We stock a wide variety of goods but we have access to a huge amount of products available. We might stock white, you need pink. We have it folded, you need it in flat. We get it.
Ask, and let us go to work for you.
Good question. I hear it all the time because it’s not like there’s a ton of us out there.
When I was in college, my future brother-in-law used to stop by our apartment when he was making sales calls to the campus. He dressed nicely, had a nice car and lived in a nice house. I was a poor, broke college student. A year or two after graduation, he asked me to come aboard and build a business together. Fast forward 40 years later, and I’m still at it, going strong.
From a small shop in St. Louis’s north side to a state-of-the-art facility handling over 10 million pounds of textiles annually, we’ve gone from worrying about making payroll to worrying about how to help make a difference in people’s lives through our corporate community give back efforts. It’s been a wonderful and meaningful journey and we still have a lot more to prove.
