Chic and digital laundry room for the tenants – from which the administration also benefits

Organised as a foundation with a clear mission, the focus at the Serata nursing home has always been on the individual person with his or her unique dignity. The residents can participate in the Christian life in the house. Of course, people of other faiths also feel at home at Serata. Values and quality embody a supporting role. This also applies to the Serata partners, and thus also to the Schulthess laundry solution.
‘For us, the focus is on the individual person, his or her well-being is our greatest concern,’ says Rolf Roider, home manager at Serata Zizers. When you accompany him through the rooms at the nursing home, you quickly realise what is meant by this: Each person is treated with respect and esteem. The contact is cordial, people pay attention to each other and there is a lot of laughter. The Serata offers care places, retirement flats and studios in which people can live autonomously. There is also a dementia ward where people can move around safely without an escort. The gastronomic offering is also impressive: The healthy, fresh selection for internal and external guests is highly appreciated and can also be ordered as catering.

It was clear from the start which washing appliance manufacturer the newly founded vischpa Textilreinigung AG in Visp would work with. Even the initial contact with Schulthess proved to be a stroke of luck. The Swiss company with its understanding of quality, professional project support and unique programmes ensured that the five young entrepreneurs were able to design and open their dry cleaning business in record time. Today, washing in Visp is done ecologically and sustainably with wetClean.
Within just three months, the business idea became a reality and the first wetClean cleaning service in Valais opened in Visp. The fact that this was feasible also has to do with Schulthess Maschinen AG. ‘The customer advisor from Schulthess kept up with our pace. For example, our enquiry was answered within one day with a quotation. And it was so good that we immediately opted for the Schulthess solution,’ says Christine Albrecht, CEO of vischpa Textilreinigung AG. ‘We were even guided in the choice of premises. Schulthess developed the optimal laundry solution for us, and the overall package totally convinced us.’

The Zurich municipal laundry is an exceptional operation. As an organisation close to the market, it offers around 50 employees the chance to return to the ‘normal working world’. Work takes place five days a week, in three four-hour shifts. The team leader places special emphasis on manual skills such as ironing by hand, darning holes or sewing on buttons. As a social institution, the laundry aims to train employees not only in manual skills but also in social skills: The spectrum ranges from showing up on time and dealing with each other in a businesslike manner to writing job applications. The laundry works for a number of companies in the city of Zurich, but its satisfied clients also includes private clients such as Spitex and restaurants. 700 kg of laundry are processed daily, 180 tonnes annually.
