China Laundry Expo 2018, a booming number of visitors in a booming market

The 19th China International Dyeing and Dyeing Exhibition was attended by more than 20.000 visitors in Shanghai. More than 220 outstanding enterprises from more than 10 countries and regions were present to exhibit their products and services on a surface of 23.000 m2.

This successful 19th edition marks a steady growth rate for China Laundry Expo since the start in 2000. The solid market growth means also comes booming sales by suppliers, a conclusion proven by many new entries in the market. However, the market research seems to be less developed. As a result, several companies have to stop their operations, due to the fact that in reality the market is not as large as they thought it would be.

Ms. Ruth Lorenz – Vice President of Messe Frankfurt International

Ms. Ruth Lorenz of Messe Frankfurt was also pleased with the two exhibitions merging. “The cooperation with China International Dyeing Industry Exhibition will make effective use of industry resources in Asia, especially China.

Stomerij Van Hal, improving continuously after 40 years!

Since 1978, Stomerij Van Hal is offering professional textile cleaning services for the Southern region of The Netherlands. For the B2C market, a complete variety of services is offered, consisting of making textiles fire-resistant, cleaning furniture, carpets and wedding gowns. The company has also an important B2B dimension, by bringing its own specific service with its standard and extra requirements when it comes to cleanliness and delivery times. The growth generated by this approach increases the need to control processes constantly, therefore Stomerij van Hal decided to take the next step in quality management and successfully applied for the CERCLEAN® International Certification.

CERCLEAN® supports business models!

Cerclean® offers a integrated quality management system focussing on the various processes within the company like sales, procurement, technique and maintenance, staff, environment and, of course, quality management. CINET offers full support to enterprises in cooperation with national organizations, associations and representatives of international suppliers.

CERCLEAN® step by step towards quality management!

The CERCLEAN® International Certificate, launched in 2016, is developed in the Netherlands in cooperation with international suppliers and experts. Until now, it was also adopted in several countries across the world. The full package, available in the various languages, offers training and consultancy; E-Learning materials, workshops and practical (on the job) training with examples and standard formats.

By the use of a web based application on the CINET website, students are guided along the different steps leading to certification. The tools and all steps are fully explained and documented and thus accessible even though companies may not have any experience with certification. By making use of the E-Learning tools and webinars on specific subjects, the companies will gain the knowledge needed to develop a comprehensive quality management system. This step by step approach enables companies to follow the program at their own pace.

CERCLEAN® certificate, icing on the cake

The program results in a documented handbook tailored to the individual company, processes and customers in various market segments in which they operate. After audits by certified auditors and approval by the CINET International Certification committee,  a Cerclean® certificate will be granted proving conformity and giving support to the communication of a company with target groups. For customers and authorities it is a proof of controlled business processes and therefore a consistent quality level of products and/or services.

In 2018 CINET will aim to implement CERCLEAN® certification in 10 new countries across the globe, focusing on high quality businesses that are able to set the international standard.

Certex® eliminates one risk factor in health threat in Europe

The European Center for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) has updated the Rapid risk assessment on Enterobactericeae that are increasingly resistant to carbapenem, a group of highly effective antibiotics that kill bacteria. This development poses a significant threat to patients and healthcare systems in EU countries. For the treatment of patients with CRE infections, few options are available according to Dominique Monnet, head of the Antimicrobial Resistance and Healthcare-Associated Infections Program of the ECDC. Dissemination can be prevented by appropriate prevention and control measures in hospitals and other healthcare institutions. CRE infections lead to long-term stay in hospitals, high treatment costs and high mortality due to delays in administering effective treatment in combination with limited availability of treatment options.

The textiles that are used in health care environments including, for example, care hotels, are guaranteed free of Enterobactericeae if it is delivered to the institution and cleaned by a Certex®-certified company. One of the hard requirements within Certex® is that there is no “Entero” on or in the textile (0 KVE / cm2); a requirement that also applies to Staphylococcus aureus. This allows healthcare institutions to check off one critical checkpoint on their list…provided that textile management is carried out hygienically within the own walls.

Update E-learning course: Rental Workwear

CINET’s World of PTC Business School e-learning modules have a brand new course focused on Rental Workwear. The course supports entrepreneurs in the laundry business by helping them to implement a more profitable growth through workwear rental.

Both customers and laundry businesses benefit of workwear rental. For the customers there is no need for investment in garments, the needed stock is held by supplier, which allows a better cost planning and a flexibility in workwear items, thanks to a professional supply chain. For the laundry businesses, this means a long term relationship based on service, a continuity of revenue and a more profitable revenue by cross-sell opportunities. Last, but not least, the company is in control of quality and service.

To establish this new part in The World of PTC Business School, CINET has found cooperation in the person of Mr. Floris van Eekert of Wasconnect. Before, he also gave a presentation on the subject during the CERCLEAN® Masterclass Training.

The new course will become available on August 13th.
