Laundry Efficiency finally get their official Royal appointment

Back in the June 2021 issue of Laundry & Cleaning Today we shared the fantastic news that Laundry Efficiency had been awarded with the UK’s highest official British business award, the prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise, for their contribution to sustainability.

Recently, they were finally able to formally receive the award. Firstly, at their offices in Cannock where the Lord Lieutenant of Staffordshire, representing the Queen, presented them with the award. The Lord Lieutenant of Staffordshire commented that, in the 10 years he’d held the position, this was the first time he’d presented a business from Staffordshire with a prestigious Queen’s award for sustainability!

All Queen’s Award winners were then invited to a Champagne reception at Windsor Castle in November. Graham Oakley, commercial director at Laundry Efficiency, proudly attended and was delighted to have had the opportunity to talk directly to Princess Anne and explain the ethos of the business and their sustainability achievements and future goals. Prince Charles, Princess Michael of Kent and Princess Alexandra were also in attendance talking to all the award winners.

Laundry Efficiency were awarded The Queen’s Award for Enterprise for their outstanding achievement in tackling important environmental issues within the laundry supply chain to make the world a better place – truly living their business mission of making the textile care industry greener and more sustainable.

Only 205 organisations were recognised this year with a prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise, of which only 17 were, like Laundry Efficiency, recognised for their sustainability achievements. The award means they will carry the honour of using the acclaimed Royal Warrant for the next five years.
