Armstrong Laundry Equipment Keeps up with Demand for Clean Workwear on Christmas Turkey Farm

Walters Turkeys, situated in beautiful countryside on the Berkshire Downs, has been producing top quality free range and organic turkeys for the Christmas market since 1971.  It is a friendly, family run business which now produces some 12,000 turkeys every year, all of which are dry plucked and hand finished on the farm.

The five weeks before Christmas when all the turkeys are processed is, unsurprisingly, frantically busy for all the 45 staff working on the farm and there is a continuous need for clean overalls.  In the past they managed with domestic laundry equipment, but as the business grew they needed quicker, more robust machines to ensure the laundry kept up with demand.  So just over two years ago Armstrong Commercial Laundry Systems supplied and installed a Horizon stacked washer/dryer unit.  According to Kate Walters the machines have been a great success.  “We have been very pleased with them,” she told us.  “They are in constant use throughout the busy five weeks leading up to Christmas, the cycles are thorough and quick and keep up with the demand for clean overalls.  The rest of the year they are still used for staff workwear, but the demand isn’t anywhere near as high.”

What our clients say...

  • “Our machines have come from several suppliers – there is a big difference in the standards of support we receive and Armstrong gets 10 out of 10 – their service has been consistently excellent over several years and when you’re as busy as we are, that’s very important.”

    Jacqui Butler

  • “It’s important to get the right equipment for the job, too small and it won’t do it properly, too big and you are wasting money, energy and space. It is also important to deal with a company you trust to supply reliable equipment and give you the support you need. As expected, the installation went smoothly, we have never had the slightest problem and I know Armstrong will deal with it if we do.”
