Case Study - Palace Laundry replace Dry Cleaning machine with Wet Cleaning solution
Palace Laundry, a well-established laundry and dry cleaner in Fulham, London, have recently implemented a full wet cleaning solution into their facility, supplied and installed by the UK’s most experienced wet cleaning supplier and distributor, Renzacci UK.
The introduction of a wet cleaning solution was the final step in a multi-stage refurbishment of their dry cleaning department. Palace Laundry were looking to achieve three objectives from the project. One, to be able to offer an environmentally-friendly laundry service to their clients. Two, they wanted a flexible solution that would increase the speed of production and expand the range of garments they could process and finish to a high standard. Three, they wanted to improve their bottom line profitability.
Having visited their facility to undertake a full site survey, Renzacci UK’s Managing Director, Jason Alexander, recommended the Electrolux Lagoon Advanced Care System, based on its environmental and revenue-generation benefits, along with Pony’s best-in-class finishing equipment.
The Electrolux W5240H Lagoon Washer and Electrolux T5550 Lagoon Dryer were installed into their facility, replacing an old hydrocarbon dry cleaning machine. Palace Laundry also proceeded with a Pony Formplus-S Jacket Former and a Pony MPT-D Trouser Topper to complete their laundry set up.
Following the installation, Renzacci UK delivered comprehensive training to ensure staff members were fully-informed about the machine functions and confident using them.
Palace Laundry General Manager, Sheryl Reynolds, is delighted with the outcome. It was taking over 1 hour to process an 18kg load of dry cleaning in their old hydrocarbon dry cleaning machine, amounting to a total of 8-9 hours per day in total. With the introduction of the new Lagoon Advanced Care System, this figure has now been halved to approximately 4-5 hours per day, saving time and money, whilst delivering enhanced turnaround times for their customers.
Sheryl comments; “This has been a true revolution. We were told that the wet cleaning system would be a superb replacement for our old hydrocarbon dry cleaning machine, but this has been a game changer. Environmentally-friendly, energy-efficient, easy to operate and hugely increased production have delivered a perfect solution for us. The training that Renzacci UK provided my staff with was comprehensive, but more importantly, professionally carried out. The staff and I are delighted with the results.”
