Travelling scholars visit Swiss Camplings laundry

Guy Turvill, chairman at Swiss Camplings laundry recently hosted the open day for the travelling scholars at their steam-free laundry in Great Yarmouth, organised by the Worshipful Company of Launderers.

After the welcome introduction, the visitors, alongside a good turnout from the Worshipful Company of Launderers Liverymen, toured the factory which services the hospitality market in East Anglia. Networking and discussions continued over lunch where Swiss Camplings directors Doug Muttitt, Craig Saunt and Mark Turvill were able to expand on the business’s story and experiences.

A Q&A session later in the day provoked lively contributions covering a wide range of topics including energy consumption, shrink wrap challenges, steam free versus conventional steam set up, staffing challenges, finding a new site and pay rates.

Rodney Beale and Melvyn Rogers both offered their summations and votes of thanks citing that the industry remains friendly and that over 35-50 years, nothing has really changed! ‘The key message is to look after your staff, money is made/lost on the factory floor, keep in communication with the housekeepers and…. despite a painful Covid period, we will survive!’ they say.
