Recent news from South-Afrika –Bidvest Laundry Group invests in new washer

The Bidvest Laundry Group has been a leading industrial laundry services in South Africa for more than three decades. Operating 11 branches throughout the country, the company has always been focused on excellent service delivery and affordable solutions that cater to a wide range of industries, including healthcare, hospitality, chemical, food, retail, mining, motoring, engineering, pharmaceutical, industrial, and general manufacturing. They intend to offer a solid infrastructure, backed by a highly-experienced, dedicated team.

The group is essentially composed of three divisions: First Garment Rental – Specialist in the rental and laundering of work wear; Boston Launderers – the largest commercial laundry operation in South Africa offering laundry services to the hospitality and healthcare industries; and Montana Laundries – providing tailor-made on-premise laundry services.

The Cape Town plant has been operating a Milnor CBW system since 2006. Recently new equipment was installed – such as the new PulseFlow batch washer – the laundry has improved its performance by benefiting from shorter process times. To be able to support the increased production and keep up with a transfer time of about two minutes, they decided to invest in two new additional 64059 steam dryers. Pursuing the equipment renewal process, they also decided to purchase a new four-pocket loading conveyor and replace the existing central MLF-4545 lint filter with new on-bard MLF1010 lint filters.
