Hygiene first

The hygienic treatment of textiles and personnel’s safety are crucial for Professional Textile Care companies. Regardless of the segment where the company operates, the Corona pandemic underlined the importance of a certified quality management system that can guarantee hygienically clean textiles.  If hygiene is among the main areas of focus in your laundry, then it’s time to showcase it for among the best PTC companies in the world. Free of charge, easy and with great rewards!
