Renowned Dipra Laundry becomes part of Swiss Schwob Group

On 1st January 2019 linen manufacturer & textile care firm Schwob AG is to take-over the Swiss laundry firm Dipra which will be fully integrated in the Schwob Group.

Dipra owners Edmondo Varallo and his son Massimo have built their laundry service company over the past 30 years. Their middle-sized company was ideally situated in the area of Bellinzona – near the Swiss border – and was renowned for its good services and craftsmanship.  With the take-over Schwob aims at optimalizing existing synergies in the market and expects to realise attractive and cost-effective and future-oriented services in the near future for customers all over Switzerland. The acquisition will not only enable Schwob to enter the attractive hotel and catering market, but also the hospital and private sectors in the area of Ticino. Stephan Hirt, Managing Director van Schwob AG: “ We are convinced of the potential in Ticino and a further development of tourism in this area. Naturally we will continue the excellent and valued customer service of Dipra under our name. Former owner Massimo Varallo will be appointed as operations manager and employees can remain working on the former Dipra site”.  Source: Schwob AG
