The three winners are: Philip Hill, a partner in Flanhills Laundry Ilfracombe, Devon; Essam Abdeen, laundry manager at the InterContinental Hotel, Abu-Soma, Egypt and Rain Mäekivi, chief engineer at Saarmas, an industrial laundry and drycleaning business in Tallinn, Estonia.

Congratulations to all and many thanks to all those who took the time to complete the survey. Free sample issues will be sent shortly to those who requested then.

I gave some early thoughts on the results in the November comment piece, live on the home page, and we will be publishing more in a newsletter in the near future.
