Shaid Aziz has owned launderettes in the North of England for 30 years, at one time having four, but now has only two. One of them, Bright Wash, in the Meanwood suburb of Leeds is a fully attended, full service launderette and dry cleaners open every day from 9.00am to 6.30pm.
Mr Aziz has had Speed Queen tumble dryers from Armstrong Commercial Laundry Systems before, and he had no hesitation in buying these again. When he needed to re-equip Bright Wash last December he found that the washers he had previously from a different supplier were no longer available so he opted for the new Primus RX washers from Armstrong, choosing four of the 8kg and three of the 14kg models. He also bought five of the Speed Queen stacked dryers – giving a total of 10 x 15kg drying capacity.
According to Mr Aziz many of his customers are middle aged people, some single and some with families, who either don’t have laundry equipment in their homes, or don’t want wet washing hanging around the house, plus lots of people who do have domestic machines bring in large items such as quilts and duvets. The launderette also gets business from local schools and sports clubs who want their kit washed.
“As before I am delighted with the dryers,” Mr Aziz explained, “they are really efficient and reliable and the customers find them very easy to use. We had very minor teething problems with the washers, mainly because they are much more hi-tech than the old ones and take a bit of getting used to. But Armstrong people have worked well with us and these are all now resolved and everything is working extremely well.”
