Laun­dry firm presses ahead with new head of­fice in its home town

The Courier & Advertiser (Fife Edition) - - NEWS -

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.”
