Lavatec Laundry Technology has been awarded a US government contract to provide laundry equipment to the Camp Kinser airbase in Okinawa, Japan. The base is an important centre for logistics and is one of nine US Marine Corps bases on the island.
Lavatec will replace two, 110lbs module tunnel washers and 10 dryers along with an extraction press and centrifugal press that have been in place for 25 years. Lavatec worked in partnership with ETECH to install a new clean side rail system, while the soiled side will be modified as part of the installation.
The equipment is scheduled for delivery in February 2016 and installation is expected to be complete by the end of the first quarter.
Keith Ware, Lavatec Vice president of sales said: "The Camp Kinser project involved a very detailed and selective bid process with the camp’s purchasing group and Lavatec Laundry Technology was proud to be awarded the contract."
