Schulthess is Spinning for joy

As a washing technology pioneer, Schulthess has been inspiring people since 1845. See in the new image film what makes the Swiss traditional company and its machines and services special – and let yourself be infected by the joy!


Water instead of chemicals: This new way of wet cleaning is ingeniously simple! With Schulthess wetClean, almost all materials can be cleaned in one batch, so it’s no longer necessary to sort by fibre type or material composition. The process is even suitable for leather and highly sensitive fabrics. Each load utilises 60% of the drum capacity, which has an impact on process time: cleaning, drying and finishing in just one hour.

The Game Changer

The new proLine washing machine from Schulthess revolutionises the washing experience It’s never been easier to save time, cut costs and protect the environment while getting more laundry done: The new proLine from Schulthess gives a boost to laundry washing. With the fastest washing programmes currently available, you can manage up to 500 more laundry loads each year. Thanks to perfectly aligned programmes, you save electricity and water with every wash.

Schulthess Professional Brochure

The new Professional brochure is also spinning for joy and is presented in the new design of the Schulthess brand identity. The clear layout, compelling content and strong images reflect the innovative power and quality that goes into our products and services. And, above all, it demonstrates the expertise of Schulthess in washing technology.


Gewerbemaschinen sind rund um die Uhr im Einsatz und müssen viel leisten und aushalten. Deshalb sind Schulthess-Maschinen für Gewerbe und Industrie für grosse Wäschevolumen, hohe Auslastung und einen 24-Stunden-Betrieb entwickelt und gebaut. Sie sind auf 30'000 Chargen getestet, was je nach Einsatz einer Lebensdauer von 20 Jahren entspricht.

How Schulthess sets up a laundry

Schulthess not only repairs defective appliances, but also plans and realises entire laundries – such as the refitting of the in-house laundry at the St. Peter and Paul retirement centre in Zurich. How does this work? The nursing home’s laundry was completely renovated and fitted with new Schulthess appliances in just two days at the end of August. I was there on site and was able to document the deinstallation of the old and the installation of the new machines.


Satisfied costumers

Indigo Fitness Club Zurich: «Schulthess Machines are Vital to Us»

With several hundred customers exercising regularly at the Indigo Fitness Club, up to 800 dirty towels are produced per day. A reliable and highly professional laundry partner is indispensable.

Stoos Lodge: “We always knew immediately who to turn to.”

“Eifach anderscht” or “simply different”. This is the slogan of the new Stoos Lodge, which was freshly opened in December. Nothing is mutually exclusive here: big meets small, family meets business, and urban lifestyle meets the traditions of the canton of Schwyz. Stoos Lodge is therefore “refreshingly different” because guests can book everything individually and digitally: services such as room cleaning, breakfast or childcare. Depending on their mood. Schulthess is also enthusiastic about the project – and proud to be part of it from the outset.

Bürgenstock Resort & Spa

The Bürgerstock Resort is located in central Switzerland at 1128 m above sea level. The resort has always been a popular holiday destination. Since the Grand Hotel was built in 1873, famous personalities from all over the world have resided here - Charlie Chaplin or Audrey Hepburn are just two to be mentioned here. After the Bürgenstock reopened in 2017 after nine years of construction, it included four hotels, a medical wellness centre, top business infrastructure, numerous gourmet restaurants and the 10,000 m2 Bürgerstock Alpine Spa. The resort is a 60-hectare landmark and covers an area of one kilometre.

Clinica Hildebrand

The Clinica Hildebrand Centro di riabilitazione Brissago is one of Switzerland’s leading rehabilitation clinics. Specialising in neurological and musculoskeletal rehabilitation, it lives by the motto ‘always providing the best services for patients in all respects’. The clinic’s partners also have to comply with this principle, which is why Schulthess was chosen. The Clinica Hildebrand is located directly on Lake Maggiore and has a fantastic view of the lake and the chains of hills. ‘The favourable location is important for our patients, as it makes their stay more pleasant, has a supportive effect on the rehabilitation process and creates optimal conditions for the therapy sessions,’ says Daniele Mazzoleni, the infrastructure manager. In addition to the innovative and interdisciplinary range of therapies, the clinic impresses with its modern infrastructure, designed to offer patients the best conditions for rehabilitation. In keeping with the clinic’s philosophy: Only the best for our patients!

Serata Zizers

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.

Fire station, Uster

Civil protection in Uster provides a roof for several institutions. There is the fire brigade with its 100 volunteer firefighters, the civil defence and, as a branch, the Riedikon training centre. A wide variety of laundry items accumulate everywhere, consisting of an assortment of fabrics and materials. Schulthess has proven to be a reliable partner for cleaning them. 

Home médicalisé de la Sarine

Home médicalisé de la Sarine: With Schulthess there are no more limits! The HMS retirement home with its innovative range of services for Fribourg and the catchment area impresses with its professional care and constant new approaches to the well-being of its residents. The focus is on quality, including in the laundry. This has just been significantly expanded and now also works for external customers. The HMS retirement home is located in the countryside right next to Fribourg in Villars-sur-Glâne on a hill with a view of the beautiful countryside. Elderly people from Villars-sur-Glâne and the surrounding communities (Saane district) spend the autumn of their days here. They are well cared for and arrange their days with a wide variety of activities that are tailored to their needs. In addition to four old-age wards, there are two wards that are specially designed to meet the needs of elderly people with emotional problems. Two doctors are also available at all times to address health-related concerns. The ample comfort of the single rooms for all residents is particularly appreciated.
