A new conference centre in Aberdeen has installed a new state-of-the-art cloakroom facility.
The innovative storage solution consists of 4 different coloured conveyors which are used to store up to 2,000 overcoats for visitors. A coat is handed in, assigned a coloured tab and placed on the corresponding coloured conveyor. Visitors are then given a coloured fob for reference.
Compared to a computer-controlled rail, the manual conveyor solution is extremely cost-effective, simple to use and delivers a fast turnaround when retrieving garments.
Andrew Lambert, Business Development Director, comments: “The manual conveyor route is a perfect fit for Aberdeen Exhibition & Conference Centre. They wanted a cloakroom solution that could store up to 2,000 overcoats, was easy to use and efficient. Certainly, they didn’t want a system that was slow or caused long queues for visitors when collecting their garments.”
Implementing a system to manage cloakroom areas efficiently couldn’t be simpler with Metalprogetti UK’s garment handling solutions. Discuss your project by calling us on 020 8579 2661.
Renzacci UK is celebrating after scooping the much-coveted Machinery Distributor of the Year award at the Laundry and Dry Cleaning Awards – the biggest night in the industry’s calendar.
The award ceremony, which was held at the prestigious Mercedes-Benz World in Surrey, recognises excellence throughout the dry cleaning and laundry industry and this win reaffirms our credentials as the country’s best dry cleaning and laundry supplier in the business.
Jason Alexander, Managing Director at Renzacci UK, comments: “We are absolutely delighted to be awarded Machinery Distributor of the Year. Being recognised as the best in the industry is a fantastic achievement and a testament to the fantastic staff we have and the outstanding manufacturers we partner with.”
Coventry-based Brightly Dry Cleaners is the latest in a long line of dry cleaning businesses to move away from traditional, solvent-based dry cleaning machines, to embrace the competitive edge delivered by a state-of-the-art and environmentally-friendly Wet Cleaning system.
According to Renzacci UK’s Managing Director, Jason Alexander, “dry cleaners are extremely reluctant to pack in their reliable, long-standing dry cleaning machine for what seems a fairly new cleaning technique that they’re not totally convinced by”. Brightly Dry Cleaners very much fitted into that category, but were swayed by the system’s ability to process more loads per day, its eco-friendly credentials, ease-of-use and the plethora of garments it’s able to process, including wools, lace, linen and chiffon.
Complementing their new eco-friendly, solvent-free cleaning system, Brightly Dry Cleaners completed their new laundry set-up with Pony’s range of best-in-class finishing equipment, which included a Formplus Jacket Former and MPT-D Trouser Former. Both machines boast the perfect tensioning balance, ensuring a beautifully-finished garment every time.
Following the installation, Michael J Michael, Renzacci UK Technical Sales Manager and Master Lagooner, ran a complimentary 3-day training session to ensure staff were comfortable with operating the new equipment.
Michael, who led the installation, said: “Brightly Dry Cleaners made it clear that their new system mustn’t compromise on cleaning quality. They were astonished by the results of the Wet Cleaning demonstration we held – it cleaned the garments beautifully and unlike their old dry cleaning machine, didn’t have a chemically smell when removed from the drum. Plus, they’re able to advertise their business as eco-friendly, which is fantastic.”
