New year, new start: Happy New Year to all from LCN

3 January 2023

And we are back! It is 2023 and it’s time to take on the world again. LCN starts the New Year full of positivity and the will to get things done. And we have a plan! But first, let’s have a refresher on what LCN is all about. LCN is the leading publication for the textile care industry with news and comment, plus marketing, product and technical features and articles about legislation and business management. We cover all aspects of the industry – laundry, textile rental, hospitality, healthcare, dry/wetcleaning, OPL and launderette sectors.

LCN presents international (LCNi) and UK (LCN) editions* appearing in alternate months. In addition, we produce special issues for international exhibitions.

Editor Kathy Bowry is keen to hear from operators and suppliers who wish to engage with the industry, have stories to tell or wish to contribute their expertise. The LCN features list shows what we have planned for this year but it is not set in stone, so if there is hot news to share or something you feel is of real interest to readers and might make a good feature, do get in touch at [email protected].

As well as coverage across news and views, inovastio.  and topical issues, look out for our popular regular expert in-depth features:

•  Material Solutions, by LTC Worldwide’s Richard Neale will target issues concerning
linen rental businesses as well as OPL in healthcare and hospitality, enabling best
practice in linen management across the board.

help retail businesses identify and deal with problems and issues when processing textiles.
