Corniche Laundry Services continues to expand

Local West Sussex entrepreneur Chris Edworthy started his drycleaning career in 2001 when he purchased a south coast drycleaners and installed his first machine from Dane Realstar, a Realstar T343 18kg slimline two tank drycleaning machine, starting a long and good relationship between the two companies.

Following the acquisition of another existing business in Brighton, and setting up an ironing service, Chris also purchased several ironing tables from Dane Realstar.

Following a noticeable drop in counter sales and an increase in contract laundry sales Chris purchased an existing laundry in West Sussex and moved all his equipment to Ford, West Sussex.

Utilising the machinery from his shop and the existing laundry equipment he has built up the business to its current capacity.

He has several large capacity washer-extractors and dryers which together with finishing on the roller ironer enables him to supply high quality laundry at a competitive price.

On securing the contract to clean and finish the chefs’ uniforms from a local well known holiday resort, he decided he needed a dedicated shirt finisher and laundry press.

Knowing the quality of the equipment and service supplied by Dane Realstar, and after watching the machine in action at LCT CleanEx 2012 he approached Dane for the purchase of a Fimas shirt finishing unit including the collar cuff press, which incorporates a 50 litre boiler producing steam for the finisher. Also purchased was a Fimas laundry press with a built-in boiler.

The machinery was delivered and installed by Dane Realstar engineers and as expected is producing exceptional results for the chefs’ wear, with ease. Chris has also started to promote general shirt finishing too.

A very happy Chris confirmed that Dane took all the stress out of his project and has helped organise the finance of the machinery: “Without Dane the project would not have got off the ground so easily.”
