Mach 1 expands with Renzacci

As Ashley Cadman, managing director at Mach 1 Engineering at Dorking in Surrey, looks around his ‘onestop shop’ with 3,000 square feet of warehouse space for drycleaning and laundry equipment there’s much to admire. “But I’m not going to sit still and we’re looking to expand,” he reveals.

“When I came on board Mach 1 was predominantly an engineering company, run by my uncle, Paul Cook. I was only 18 or 19, looking for a direction, and it seemed a good chance to learn about the engineering side. As a young chap this didn’t feel like a thing I might do forever, but it moved from something I started to like to really interesting – I was hooked.”

When Cook offered him a joint partnership, Cadman was already hooked and excited about the chance to develop the commercial and industrial machinery business’s role offering engineering services to the drycleaning, laundry, hotel and care home sectors, alongside supply, installation and service of a full range of equipment.

Mach 1 Engineering is now an approved partner for Renzacci, formimg a strong relationship for the drycleaning, wetcleaning and laundry industry. Offering a product range of washers and dryers to the drycleaning and launderette market. At the moment Cadman’s focus is very much on the latest developments from Renzacci: “With the new solvents they come into a league of their own.

“Drycleaners are now dealing with so many different garments and items with mixed fabrics. The Renzacci equipment gives cleaners the edge, whether they need to do wetcleaning or drycleaning. Some drycleaners have been stuck in a time warp, but those who diversify need never turn away work. The standard should be that there is nothing that comes into your shop that you cannot clean.”

Cadman continues, says that ‘bio drycleaning’ is reviving the indust ry with natural cleaning techniques, a trend they are spotting worldwide, but significantly in the UK market.

Mach 1 is aware that in a world where there is a shortage of water for many people, and with microplastics polluting the oceans, the drycleaning sector needs to offer cost effective and sustainable solutions. “Drycleaning is far from disappearing, but on the other hand it is undeniable that the global market in this sector nowadays expresses demands that have led to remarkable changes in machineries and their performance,” says Cadman.

Renzacci Italy invests more than seven per cent of its annual turnover in research and development of new technologies, leading to innovations in their equipment to enhance energy saving, water consumption, solvent usage, protection of the environment and all users’ health.

A good example of this commitment is development of the Excellence 2.0 range. Innovations abound, from the computer touchscreen to a filtration system with micro-purification. Quick drying technology, self-cleaning tanks and a distillation system providing instant purification of the solvent sit alongside low energy consumption, user friendliness and reduced maintenance and operating costs.

Excellence machines can operate with multiple solvents including Sensene, HiGlo, Intense, K4, GreenEarth and hydrocarbon. Their ‘bio drycleaning’, using natural solvent alternatives to perc, provides a hypoallergenic and biodegradable washing medium combined with high quality cleaning which respects the properties of the treated fibres, their natural softness and colours.

A popular choice is Safechem’s Sensene solvent, and recent installations by Mach 1 include at Norbury Express Dry Cleaners in London, where owner Mudasir Baig now has an Excellence 35 machine from Renzacci. Similarly, Jafar Alfrouadi, owner of Belgrave Premium Dry Cleaners in the capital is now using a Renzacci machine with Sensene.

Mach 1 has been kept busy during the pandemic installing the full range of Renzacci equipment, including ozone cabinets for sanitising and disinfection. Indeed, it’s a sign of the times that drycleaners are discovering these specialist services are attracting new customers or increasing the custom from regular clients.

These include Mr Ali from Goodrich Dry Cleaners in Merstham, Surrey, where the family-run business has been serving the community there for more than 26 years, building on four decades of drycleaning experience. They chose to install a Renzacci I-Genius ozone cabinet after a major fire in June left four homes extensively damaged. Ali was able to help remove smoke smells from customers’ rescued treasured possessions, and no doubt the cabinet will be put to good use in future in less serious incidents.

Mach 1 has engineers covering the whole of England, Scotland and Wales. Together with Renzacci Italy, they aim to offer a comprehensive service both before and after equipment purchase. Training on the new machines and cleaning techniques can be carried out at the UK shops of highly skilled drycleaners so that those learning can do so alongside industry colleagues already adept in day-to-day ‘real life’ operations.

Start ups can be taken all through the process and Mach 1 are also experts in helping drycleaners who are moving premises, with a complete removal and installation service. Those looking to buy a business might like to take advantage of Mach 1’s inspection service where engineers provide a full report on all equipment on the premises. They can also provide storage space for customers who need time to complete projects or have second-hand equipment which will be refurbed before being put back into the market.

 

Nabeel and Wallis from Royal Dry Cleaners in Cookham, Berkshire recently installed a Renzacci I-genius ozone cabinet from Mach 1 Engineering. After exploring other companies Nabeel was looking for a machine quickly due to their hotel contracts and Mach 1 Engineering was able to deliver within 48 hours.
