Home médicalisé de la Sarine: With Schulthess there are no more limits!
The large new laundry is impressive
With Schulthess there are no more limits!
‘Finally we have a big laundry with all the necessary appliances. Now we can wash, dry, iron and press more ecologically and efficiently,’ says the manager of HMS, pointing proudly to the spacious laundry area. Whereas previously there was little space available for the entire laundry, there is now a professional laundry solution developed and implemented by Schulthess precisely for the requirements of HMS. The decision in favour of Schulthess was easy for HMS: a convincing price offer, positive experiences from the past and a laundry solution concept developed by Schulthess were impressive in the evaluation phase. proLine and industrial washing machines and dryers are now used for washing and drying, while in the finishing area a wide variety of fabrics are immaculately cared for by means of rotary ironers and ironing stations. With the preprogrammed and fast Schulthess programmes, you can move more quickly, which saves detergent, electricity, money and time.
The time saved means that capacity is available for smaller, regional external laundry customers. A laundry contract for an external retirement home has already been accepted. The three HMS laundry employees and an apprentice now not only wash their own demanding fabrics, but they also serve external customers. ‘If we had not planned the new laundry on a large-scale basis, this job would have been impossible to handle,’ says Ms Nanchen, the most experienced and senior laundry employee. ‘But we can offer even more: All the HMS employees can bring their garments such as coats, ski suits, two-piece suits, etc., to us at a favourable price. Thanks to the Schulthess wetClean system, everything is cared for gently and in a way that preserves its value. That is very much appreciated.’ And finally, Ms Nanchen says that she can easily wash everything, absolutely everything: ‘Il n’y a plus de limites avec Schulthess!’
