Christeyns build on Swiss Laundry partnership

Christeyns to continue partnership with state-of-the-art laundry business

Christeyns is to continue its partnership with Swiss Laundry, having contributed to the creation of a new purpose-built facility in Papworth, Cambridge.

This 38,000 sq ft facility now houses some of the most technically advanced and sustainable laundry systems in Europe, and can process up to 500,000 pieces of linen per week.

Having commenced work with Swiss Camplings in 2017, assisting the upgrade of their Great Yarmouth commercial site, Christeyns was awarded this new contract to fit out and supply their latest facility in Cambridge. The new contract, which will see Christeyns supporting Swiss for most of the coming decade, is worth several million pounds and encompasses the original agreement, making the two contracts co-terminus.

Christeyns won the original contract based on its innovative, groundbreaking Cool Chemistry, a patented innovation that combines equipment and chemistry to deliver improved whiteness and increased disinfection whilst washing at lower temperatures.

In addition, Christeyns has provided in excess of £500k worth of equipment. The latest auto-dosing equipment, Christeyns Flux Multi and Flux Star, provide dosing to the washer extractors and tunnel washer with both units integrated and controlled by a Management Information System.

Laundry X-Pert, an advanced laundry management information software (MIS), helps manage and control the cost and efficiency of the laundry wash process from one central system which. along with Laundry Dashboard, gives real-time insight into the productivity of both staff and processes, providing updates on current productivity against targets.

Christeyns’ high tech water and energy handling equipment, including the Heat X Energo heat exchanger, allow Swiss Laundry to run a Zero Steam laundry where both water and energy are recycled. This dramatically reduces water usage per kg washed, increasing the amount of reusable water.

Christeyns’ Director, Dave Aveyard, commented: “We are delighted to further strengthen our partnership with Swiss Laundry and the Turvill family, and congratulate them on the opening of their new facility. The equipment installed at both sites has helped position Swiss Laundry as one of the most energy efficient laundry companies in Europe.”
