Tecnolav Lavandería Sustentable From Argentina Boosts Capacity and Sustainability

Aimed at offering a distinctive service and being closer to its customers, Girbau worked together with Tecnolav Lavandería Sustentable in Argentina on an expansion project that enabled the Argentinean company to boost its washing capacity from 300 kg of linen a day to 20 tonnes.

The project was initiated with a view to high quality standards and reducing the environmental footprint. Thus energy costs could be cut and at the same time the productivity and profitability of the business could be improved. Fernando Argiró – head and founder of Tecnolav Lavandería Sustentable in Buenos Aires, Argentina, wanted a solid, dependable partner and chose Girbau because of this company’s philosophy. A Project Management document was drawn up that not only dealt with planning and device and the coordination and execution of the project, but also with fully equipping the laundry and supporting the client all the way through.

Thanks to the installation of the Girbau machinery, water consumption fell by 70%, chemicals used in the processes by 30%, gas by 20% and steam by 10% on the premises. Also, the end results in terms of linen were excellent and therefore the service provided was able to stand out from the competition, with a positive impact on clients.
