Armstrong Laundry Equipment Supplied to Derbyshire Special School

The Pegasus School in Caldwell, Derbyshire, run by the Senad Group, is an independent residential school for young people ages eight to 19 years with severe learning disabilities, autism and associated challenging behaviour.  The school is part of the SENAD Group of specialist schools, adult care homes and community based support services.

The main laundry facilities handle the young people’s personal clothing, bedding and towels and operate seven days a week, 52 weeks a year.  The main laundry also handles all the medical/control wash needs for the school.   In the autumn of 2015 the school purchased two new 11kg Primus washers, supplied by Armstrong Commercial Laundry Systems and installed by Armstrong dealer, Claridge Electricals.

Stefan McCran who is responsible for catering and housekeeping in the SENAD  schools, told us he has had a good relationship with Armstrong for some time, with equipment being supplied to several of the SENAD schools and homes, including an 11kg Amazon washer supplied to Aran Hall School in Gwynedd.  “The range of equipment is good and the machines are very reliable,” he said.  “Most of the laundry is done by the housekeeping staff in the schools who are given training in the different programmes, control and medical washes.  At Bladon House  we also have smaller laundry rooms located in the homes for the young people to learn new ‘life skills’ such as how to do their owns washing.”

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.”

    Colin Farquharson, St Ermin’s Hotel
