Implementation of best practices is the key for safe & sustainable processing. Using modern equipment, operation, optimal working methodologies enhance safe and sustainable professional textile cleaning and/or laundering.

Business model & service concept

Meeting customers’ demands of specific markets requires a clear business model that offers the best value proposition. The right services, contributing to the ease and convenience of customers and fitting into the chosen business model is therefore important. Marketing is required to communicate the key message of company.


The world is changing and so is the market demand, therefore innovations are important to cope with changing customer demands on quality and services, legislation and environmental requirements. What are the innovations of the textile cleaning / textile service company?
