Swiss Laundry cleans up with sale of Cambridge site

Swiss Laundry has completed the sale of its Cambridge site as it moves operations to a new purpose-built commercial laundry at Papworth Business Park.

Mark Turvill, director at Swiss Laundry, which had been operating at the Cherry Hinton Road site for 115 years, said: “Our commercial laundry business has enjoyed successive years of growth and, as a result, we had outgrown the Cherry Hinton Road site.

“Our board recognised the need for larger premises; a space which would allow us to modernise, evolve and build resilience for the long-term. We were unable to find suitable premises in Cambridge so the net was cast more widely to Papworth, where we have invested in a new purpose-built commercial laundry.

“This sale and move has enabled us to invest in the very latest environmentally responsible technology and plant while creating new jobs.”
