Certex: Successful Recertification Of De Gordijnenwasserij (NL)

De Gordijnenwasserij, a laundry located in Reeuwijk (The Netherlands) has received the Certex certification for a period of three years. Two mobile locations were also recertified. A third mobile location was successfully audited for the first time. De Gordijnenwasserij  is thus allowed to use the Certex Certificate quality management system. This demonstrates compliance with ISO 9001 as well as NEN-EN 14065 RABC, the standard that monitors specific hygiene risks within a laundry. The RABC standard can be seen as a counterpart to the HACCP standard known in the hospitality industry.

De Gordijnenwasserij specializes in cleaning curtains, net curtains, slats and blinds and also cleans mobile units on location. These locations are also Certex certified.

A complete overview of all Dutch Certex-certified companies can be found on www.certex.info.
