Wolds Laundry Services, Spilsby

Washing, drying and rotary ironer installation for a new laundry services in Spilsby

Wolds Laundry services, near Spilsby in the Lincolnshire Wolds, is a new start up partnership between holiday let owners Rod & Hannah Avery and David & Lou Grant. Their stated aim is to run a quality bespoke laundry service to their own holiday lets and others, local hotels, restaurants and other businesses.

We were invited in to quote for the onsite premises laundry in March 2018 and we had some fierce competition for this great green field opportunity, and quite rightly so. To win the business our approach for this site was to demonstrate design, technical and product excellence. Our first action was for our technical laundry guru Gary to propose a different plan to that which the owners had initially conceived. The reason for this was very simple.

Gary wanted to achieve the optimum output possible from the space available – which was a calculation derived from available floor space, machines specified and optimal workflow. Budget was also key. Gary also considered the future expansion plans for the business and designed the layout and services accordingly. Once the initial plans had been agreed Gary undertook a full technical survey including setting out service positions and layout (electrical, gas and drainage plans) for the next tradesmen on site.

The equipment we specified was Danube, 10Kg and 14kg high spin washers with bespoke programs, Danube LPG gas 16Kg tumble dryer with chrome drum, reversing action, inverter control* and moisture sensor (for more effective drying which protects the garments from wear) and a 9KG LPG dryer and a Danube 1400mm electric rotary ironer with Nomex cover and chrome plated basin head.

On the date of the installation we had a crew of 4 guys to make sure that the installation went as quick and smoothly as possible. This went quite well although we encountered a few ‘bugs’, which we ensured were dealt with in the coming days. Our philosophy with these things is that we will not expect sign off until we know that everything is working to the specification as it should and in accordance with the customer promise.

“Wolds Laundry Services used Aventus when setting up a new laundry business. We were very satisfied with the advice when planning the laundry layout, choice of machines and then the installation, set up, and subsequent after sales service.” Co-owner David Gaunt.
