Cherry Tree offers critical engineering cover and support to the NHS and major laundry groups across the UK


In these unpredictable times for us all, Cherry Tree Machines discusses the challenges we all face in the industry and how they can help businesses buy, manage and look after their machines and the environment…

Offering critical engineering cover to meet demands

As from 16 March Cherry Tree Machines is the first laundry machinery company to offer Critical Engineering Cover to meet the demands of laundries during the COVID-19 virus outbreak, particularly for the likes of hospitals and public sector services in and around the UK and Ireland.

The Cherry Tree team of engineers based nationwide is continuing to offer 24/7 support*. The skilled and qualified team now offers critical engineering cover and support on an extensive range of washers, dryers and ironers, wherever possible, allowing those businesses on the front line to continue operating to their maximum capacity during these unpredictable times.

Bob Mills, CEO of Cherry Tree Machines says: “These are challenging times for us all, especially some of our largest customers, therefore it’s really imperative we offer this ‘critical engineering cover’ service and continue to support them. With high demands from key sectors, our team of service engineers strive to meet these and provide continuity wherever they can.

He continues: “We have taken advice from the government and all precautionary measures are in place to ensure we meet the necessary guidelines. Our team is continuously taking advice and is fully briefed on the on-going and evolving requirements”.
