CLEAN invests £500k in their Banbury Laundry

CLEAN has invested £500k into its Banbury site to cover equipment upgrades and workforce expansion.

The company, which was acquired by Alsco in May 2018, carried out further upgrades to equipment at the laundry following the recent introduction of a Kannegiesser press, washer-extractors and new linen sorting system.

To support the equipment improvements, CLEAN Banbury is planning to increase the size of its engineering team by a third. It plans to employ both skilled staff and offer apprenticeships.

The apprenticeship scheme will be open to young professionals keen to complete an apprenticeship in the laundry industry and will support CLEAN’s aim to draw in new talent to both the business and the laundry service industry.

CLEAN CEO Jason Miller said: “Our Banbury laundry plays a pivotal role in our continued success story, so it is essential that we continue to invest in the site and our workforce to support and grow the business. New equipment increases quality for our customers and has positive benefits for staff.

“We are also pleased to be in the position of expanding our workforce, offering new jobs to those in the region and opening up the industry to newcomers through apprenticeships.”

The Banbury laundry opened in 1997 and supplies bed linen, towelling and table linen to businesses in South East England and the Midlands, including Center Parcs, Premier Inn hotels in the region and Club Quarters plus many others.
