Success storie: Professional
Schulthess is the partner that matches our philosophy
Small and cramped was yesterday
Much is still possible
The Clinica Hildebrand is continuously being expanded, improved, extended and rebuilt. Infrastructural improvements are a constant theme. Recently, the outdated appliances in the laundry room, which no longer met today’s needs, also came under the spotlight. In the evaluation for a new, modern laundry solution, Schulthess was recommended by criteria such as positive experiences in the past, the thoughtful room design, the recommended solution in terms of appliances, but not least also with regard to the targeted advice and the relationship of trust built up over the years. Whereas work used to be done in a small, cramped laundry room, today we can enjoy a spacious laundry. Not only does it create better working conditions and make everyday work easier, but it also handles more laundry in-house in less time and demanding fabric types are washed gently and hygienically. This increases independence from any external service provider. ‘Schulthess is also the right partner for us from an economic standpoint,’ says Daniele Mazzoleni.
Since the new laundry has been in use, the work has become more pleasant: The washing and drying processes are clearly structured thanks to the use of the new washing machines in the Spirit eMotion, industrial or proLine lines. It’s only a couple of paces to the rotary ironer or ironing station. This enables the laundry to be processed efficiently. Ecological savings are also evident: less water and electricity are consumed. The programmes are preprogrammed and make operation of the appliances simple and fast. Dosing is still done by hand, but the computer-controlled dosing system is already being planned.
