American Dry Cleaning Company announce latest acquisition

American Dry Cleaning Company (ADCC) has recently announced their acquisition of Perkins Dry Cleaners in Holland Park, London – a 45 year old established business with a great old school skill base, says Julian Stone, founder of ADCC.

He said: “This acquisition adds and strengthens something very special to our portfolio that is in limited supply in the industry – old school craftsmen that really know the art of drycleaning and laundry.”

It will also increase their geographical reach and add customer touch points from ADCC’s closest shops in Kensington Church Street, Notting Hill, and Portobello Market.

The business now has 45 sites across exclusive London postcodes and Perkins is their third acquisition this year, including two new vacant shop openings. Stone saw the opportunity as attractive due to the retirement of the owners and it meant he would be inheriting a great team and cementing the ADCC brand in the area. It also directly responds to continual requests from their collection and delivery customers in Holland Park to have a high street presence.

Stone said: “Over the last 12 months as the economy has suffered, opportunities have arisen to be able to be in a fortunate position to cherry pick locations and businesses that we have been in discussions with prior to the pandemic. “The type of garments coming in are different from before the pandemic where now it is more household, laundry and wash and fold work. Hopefully as the economy gains traction the suits, shirts and party work will return.

“I am pleased that we have been able to acquire a 45-year established business, with a great team that will join the American Dry Cleaning Company family. I would like to thank Perkins and the American Dry Cleaning Company team for this professional and well orchestrated deal.”
