Renzacci UK, supplier of dry and wetcleaning machinery, has announced that a prestigious partnership with UK Fashion & Textile Association (UKFT), has been formalised this month, enabling companies purchasing a new wetcleaning system to receive free UKFT membership for 12 months. The announcement appears on the Renzacci UK website here
The agreement gives eligible businesses access to a plethora of member benefits, including: free business advice and support, networking opportunities, marketing support, access to annual events and seminars, training, masterclasses and insights on the latest developments in chemical and solvent management.
UKFT took over responsibility for championing the drycleaning, wetcleaning and high street laundry services from its federated member, the Textile Services Association (TSA), in 2018. It is the UK representative for GINETEX care labelling symbols and also sits on various BSI/ISO committees, which impact the entire sector.
The association also acts as a voice between government and industry and represents the sector in areas including the Sustainability in Textile Care Committee and the Minimisation of Plastics in Textiles.
Martin Jenkins, UKFT project manager, said: “We are delighted to partner with Renzacci UK to ensure companies purchasing a new wetcleaning system have access to the most up-to-date industry information and our extensive range of member services, including the representation for complaint and dispute resolutions, the industry Code of Practice and Fair Compensation Guide.
“This agreement is part of UKFT’s commitment to creating the right environment for the garment and textile care industry to thrive and we look forward to welcoming new companies into our network.”
Jason Alexander, managing director of Renzacci UK, said: “Partnering with UKFT is just another reason why drycleaners and laundries should opt for a wetcleaning system from Renzacci UK. By becoming a UKFT member and appointing Renzacci UK as their wetcleaning supplier, the support they’ll receive from both sides is endless and will open the door to numerous business opportunities for them, including marketing promotion, access to funding and skills development.”
