Wellington College, a prestigious independent boarding school based in Crowthorne, Berkshire, has transformed its laundry operations with a purpose-built facility designed, supplied and fitted by commercial laundry specialists, WASHCO. The cutting-edge facility sets new standards in laundry operations, says Washco, delivering a truly bespoke solution to improve capacity and efficiency for the school and it’s 1,100 boarders. Central to this innovation are the WASHCONNECT washing machines and dryers, which leverage advanced IoT (Internet of Things) technology to provide a seamless and connected laundry experience.

“We are thrilled to unveil this state-of-the-art laundry facility at Wellington College," said James Holmes, sales director at Washco. "I have worked with the school for 20 years and I am delighted to be involved in this exciting project to take their laundry to the next level.”

Holmes continued: “Through our intelligent WashConnect system, we can monitor the machines remotely and swiftly respond to any issues, minimising downtime and ensuring a smooth laundry process for the school going forward.”

Graham Heffer, general services manager at Wellington College, expressed his delight with the laundry facility, stating: “We are really happy with the laundry. We now have a solution for the future.”

Heffer further praised the partnership with Washco: “The relationship we have built with Washco is brilliant. Knowing that they are just a call away to address any concerns, whether through in-person support or remote cloud assistance, brings us great confidence and peace of mind.”

Together with Washco, Wellington College has created an economical,  high-quality and reliable laundry solution that perfectly aligns with its vision for the future. The facility is designed to serve the college’s specific needs, with custom wash and dry programmes developed for individual dormitories to make the processing of student uniforms and other clothing as hassle-free as possible for the laundry team.

With the extra capacity, the school also has the ability to take in laundry from its local prep school and internal catering operation.
