Laundry firm presses ahead with new head office in its home town
Fishers Laundry Group has underlined its commitment to its home town of Cupar by opening a new head office there.
Linda McCurdy, chief executive of K-Bro Linen Systems, which acquired Fishers this year, performed the opening ceremony. It will house 14 administrative staff and management.
She was joined by Fife Provost Jim Leishman, local MSP Willie Rennie and Fishers’ managing director Michael Jones.
Fishers was established in 1900 and now washes, irons and delivers more than two million items a week to the hospitality, healthcare, manufacturing and pharmaceutical sectors.
The business currently operates from seven sites across Scotland and the north of England. Fishers has named its new head office Edenfields – reflecting its location in Cupar Trading Estate on the outskirts of the town through which the River Eden flows.
Ms McCurdy said: “Fishers occupies an important place in the UK laundry market and I’m thrilled that we’ve been able to create a new head office facility that reflects its position as a significant, modern laundry business.”
Mr Jones said: “We’re proud to be based in Cupar and our new head office provides modern accommodation for our central services team alongside the conferencing and meeting facilities that are essential to running our business. We love the fact we’re right across the road from our largest Scottish laundry here in the town.”
Mr Rennie said Fishers had a good reputation in the hospitality sector, adding: “The decision to open a new head office in Cupar will signal the company’s commitment to Scotland.”
