Merger between Leading Dutch Textile Care Specialists Cleanlease and Lips+

Cleanlease and LipsPlus – two leading Textile Care Specialists in the Netherlands – have finalized their merger.  With a team of approximately 1,500 employees, the newly-established combination will operate under the name of Cleanlease as from 29th June. The transaction had already been announced in March 2019, but could only become effective after approval of the Dutch Authority for Consumers and Markets  (ACM) – an independent regulator that supports the rights of consumers and businesses.

The new operation aims at creating a textile care and logistics specialist, with a nation-wide laundry network – always close to the customer. Together they expect to meet the ever increasing customer demand of providing high-standard quality, innovation, process and cost optimization throughout the industry chain.
