WHY CHOOSE

BOSTON LAUNDRIES

We offer the latest in linen monitoring to our clients as an add-on service to help ensure that stock loss is contained to the minimum possible levels. Our latest innovation makes use of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) which transmits the unique serial number of an object or a person via radio waves. RFID uses special tags that are sewn into items of linen. These tags transmit the unique serial number of each item to tag readers. Using our proprietary software, this system allows us to automate a number of key processes, including collection, sorting and tracking of items. It’s very accurate, ensuring that items are never misplaced or assigned incorrectly. It’s also very efficient – helping to reduce the time and labour required to process a customer’s laundry.

We have contingencies in place such as back-up generators, compressors and boilers, as well as water storage facilities and borehole water to help eliminate downtime in the event of unscheduled disruptions and breakdowns.

 

At Boston Launderers we process approximately 65 000 items per day countrywide. We’ve been doing this for years, so we have no doubt that our procedures work. Our wash process follows stringent wash process, ensuring that we take the utmost care to protect your linen.

 
 

We have the capacity to handle bulk items and launder large volumes daily while handling guest laundry and offering linen rental. We also have the capacity to continually grow and expand our business, thanks to the sheer scale of our facilities, equipment and staffing capabilities.

 
 

Our linen consultants will survey and assess your site in order to give you the best laundry and linen rental solution. We can also provide a comprehensive on-site linen management service and distribution at your premises, which includes the management of your linen room and handling of all incoming and outgoing linen so that you can focus on your core business while we take care of all your linen and laundry needs.

LATEST NEWS

Sustainability Matters at Bidvest Laundry Group

When it comes to fabrics, we invest in only the best on the market, so that they will sustain their contract periods. We also undertake test washes on fabrics where needed – for instance, acid-resistant garments – to ensure that their coatings are safe and effective for the industries that require this type of workwear and protection for their employees.

Acid-Resistant Garments

At The Bidvest Laundry Group, we have in-house chemical technicians whose job it is to ensure that we continually offer our customers the best in protective workwear. These teams regularly put our acid-resistant garments to the test to assess, amongst other things, how many washes the protective coating on the fabric can withstand before breaking down.

Why you need RFID

Businesses often spend a lot of money replacing garments due to staff rotation and temp-staff turnover, for instance, when the original garments may still be hanging somewhere in the building and merely require a reallocation to someone else.

The benefits of garment rental

Our garments range from top-quality overalls to highly specialised items for sectors where Occupational Health and Safety and HACCP compliance is a must.
