WHO WE ARE

At the Bidvest Laundry Group, we know how to launder. It’s a science we’ve been mastering for over 35 years. We know all about delivering impeccable service and investing in world-class machinery, equipment and technology that saves time, money and the environment.

We also know work wear inside out. We know what kinds of garments and fabrics are best suited to industries where people may be working with hazardous chemicals, or in freezing temperatures, or in places that pose a risk of infection, or where the smallest speck of dust could prove catastrophic in a sterile environment.

Nothing we do is watered down or executed in drips and drabs. What we have to offer is a solid infrastructure, backed by a highly-experienced, dynamic and dedicated team. Whatever your laundry requirements, we have the solution for you.
