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.
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.
The Bidvest Laundry Group continues to make inroads into the South African food and agriculture supply chain, no matter location, scale of operation, staff complement or nature of business
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.
Our all-in-one, high-visibility range all but eliminates the need for reflector tape and separates, depending on industry and compliance protocols.
Our garments range from top-quality overalls to highly specialised items for sectors where Occupational Health and Safety and HACCP compliance is a must.
An OPL is not an everyday, quick sell. It involves significant capital investment from the supplier’s perspective in terms of equipment and labour, hence the need for the customer to commit to a fixed-fee contract (usually 3 years or more).
Not only can Bidvest Laundry clients rely on our diligence in terms of these aforementioned standards, they can also rest assured that we are audited annually by external certification body ISOQAR Africa, to ensure our ongoing compliance.
Everything is automated, which minimises the risk associated with manual or hand dosing, like you would do at home or as happens at smaller laundries.
At the Bidvest Laundry Group, we launder to South African National Standards (SANS) 10146 wash-process guidelines, in accordance with procedures set out by the South African Bureau of Standards (SABS).
