Construction work at Berendsen’s new hospitality linen processing site in Glasgow is proceeding apace.
In a move that represents an investment in Scotland of more than £10 million in 2017, the plant will further enhance the hotel and restaurant linen services it provides to its customers across Scotland. The site will be exclusively fitted out with brand-new, state of the art machinery and equipment in a modern, spacious building.
Hotel guests will benefit from bed linen and towelling with the highest quality of finish. This is made possible through the use of sophisticated equipment and software which ensures that every item of linen will receive its optimum wash process. Once washed, each item will then be ironed or tumble dried and folded in a process specifically designed to ensure that bed linen and towelling is clean, fresh and appealingly presented when it’s used by guests.
Innovations such as the introduction of RFID tracking and the use of batch processing systems will help Berendsen to manage linen stocks, making certain that linen is always available when customers need it.
Significant planning has been devoted to minimising the plant’s environmental impact; Berendsen has won several environmental awards and was one of the first companies in the UK to be awarded the Carbon Trust Standard certificate to recognise its success in reducing carbon emissions.
Stuart McLachlan, National Account Manager based in Scotland, said “Our new facility is a hugely exciting development. With the latest equipment and software throughout, it will enable us to deliver really excellent linen quality to our customers from a spacious new site. There is great interest from both existing and new customers and we’re really looking forward to showing customers around.”
