Leading linen and laundry service provider CLEAN has invested a further £200k to increase the efficiency of its Yeovil laundry, located on the Somerset town’s Lufton Trading Estate.
Following last year’s £2.5 million capital injection, the latest investment to the laundry, which services hotels throughout the South West, sees the creation of a mezzanine floor offering a further 400sqm of space, increasing its floor capacity by 9%, as well as new meeting and training rooms.
Placed above the packing and dispatch area, the new space will streamline the process for the production team enabling them to further separate soiled and clean linen and increase the efficiency of their drivers during drop off and pick up.
Meanwhile, the introduction of the new meeting and training rooms will allow the team to hold internal and external training for the 261-strong workforce, such as Laundry Tech Courses and fire marshal training, for up to 16 employees at one time.
With the aim to improve the experience for both the team and customers, changes have also been made to refresh the interiors of the communal staff rooms and reception area.
Yeovil site director Geoff Milverton said: “The Yeovil laundry plays a pivotal role in our continued success story serving a diverse range of hospitality and catering businesses in the region. The investments made to the laundry support our goals to work as efficiently and sustainably as possible, as well as increase the amount and standard of training we offer onsite.
“Next year, we will continue to invest in our efficiency and resilience and plan to introduce the latest track and trace technology as well as introduce a borehole to run a water supply directly to the site.”
