WHAT IS YOUR BEST-SELLING PRODUCT?
Our best-selling products are high-spin washers and dryers.
WHAT IS UNIQUE ABOUT IT?
The washer includes a Compass Pro microprocessor which offers a large display and one control knob for easy program selection. With the automatic savings setting the machine weighs the linen and adjusts the amount of water and energy according to the load. This leads to considerable changes if the machine is not fully loaded.
The dryers have an axial airflow and tight construction which allows for low energy consumption.
WHAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT FEATURE OF THE PRODUCTS AND SERVICES YOU PROVIDE?
We design and supply products and services with the customer in the centre of our minds. All our products are the most efficient in the market, offering the lowest possible utility consumption and optimise detergent consumption based on the load in the machine. This enables the customer to save more during daily operations.
WHAT ARE THE LATEST TRENDS IN YOUR SECTOR?
The market is moving towards greener solutions in the region. For that we have Lagoon Advanced Care (LAC), an eco-friendly water based cleaning which is a complete replacement for the traditional dry-cleaning. LAC does not use any kind of solvents/ hydrocarbons which are harmful. This is a much more efficient, economic and green cleaning solution. Another attractive part is that we can also use these machines as a normal washer and dryer; if they are not processing the delicate garments. So they are essentially a two in one machine.
WHAT TYPE OF HOTEL OPERATION DO YOU CATER FOR?
We cater to OPL and guest valet laundry in the hotels, providing a complete solution to our customer.
WHAT SORT OF MAINTENANCE SERVICE DO YOU OFFER YOUR CLIENTS?
We have a network of distributors in the region, who provide maintenance in different packages such as an on-call service and also yearly maintenance contracts.
