This important milestone was marked by a ceremony attended by the British deputy high commissioner, Dominic McAllister, chairman of Micronclean Ltd, Simon Fry, managing director of Micronclean India, Andrew Cole amongst others.

The ceremony was the culmination of months of activity in selecting the correct site to be able to tap into India’s rapidly expanding pharmaceutical industry. 

The multi-million-pound investment in an ISO class 5 cleanroom laundry will use Micronclean’s proven process technologies to deliver a GMP compliant cleanroom laundry service that will be unique in India. It will also be an opportunity to develop innovative new technologies that can then be used back in the UK operations. 

Simon Fry, chairman of Micronclean said: ”We are delighted to have started the development of our Indian laundry after months of planning. We are committed to serving the growing Indian cleanroom market by offering a unique service that will bring quality and efficiency to our new customer base here in India. 

We see this as a valuable service offering, enhancing the regulatory compliances of the Indian pharmaceutical and bio-tech businesses.” Br i t i sh deput y high commi s s ion e r Domi n i c McAllister said: “Micronclean has a product and service portfolio which ranges from laundered garment rental services for high-tech/pharmaceutical companies, to cleanroom supplies which are exported to over 30 countries worldwide. I welcome Micronclean’s entry into Karnataka. 

This is another example of UK industry support for ‘Make in India’. UK investment into India is strong and growing – the UK has been the largest G20 investor in India and third largest investor overall (after Singapore and Mauritius) since 2010.” 

Micronclean is the largest pr ivately-owned laundr y company in the UK employing over 450 people and has been owned by one family since 1929, tracing its heritage back to the Skegness Steam Laundry in 1883.
