British commercial laundry detergent formulation expert Ideal has announced an R&D collaboration with ozone technology specialists Laundry Efficiency to reduce production costs and radically optimise the traditional supply model for UK laundries.
The partnership will see the two companies come together to develop products and services, which can alleviate some of the major challenges that laundry owners are facing.
“We are beginning to see significant benefits with the application of ozone in conjunction with the right chemistry that we are very confident will enable commercial laundries to achieve the highest quality processing, whilst helping them to achieve new levels of energy, water, time and labour savings,” said Ideal’s Dr Mike Kalli. “We’re very excited by the results achieved during field tests and look forward to announcing further information as our young team of development chemists, engineers and field chemists continue to work closely with the Laundry Efficiency team to optimise the performance of ozone technology for British commercial laundry.”
Colin Oakley, MD of Laundry Efficiency added: “We have invested significantly in the development of a new method in which to deploy ozone into the wash process and this coupled with our knowledge and expertise has allowed us to win awards and deliver some incredible savings for the customers we work with. We wanted to build a partnership with chemical experts who focus, like we do, on reducing the cost of laundry production and helping laundry owners who’ve been hit hard with increased utility and staffing costs over the last 12-18 months. We have enjoyed working with the team at Ideal and are looking forward to building a solid partnership going forward, to help laundry owners get back control of their laundry.”
