Armstrong Re-Equip the Laundries at St Stephen’s House in Oxford

St Stephen’s House is an Anglican theological foundation and Permanent Private Hall within the University of Oxford offering students training towards ordination, postgraduate study and PGCE.  In total it accommodates some 80-85 students at any one time, some in single rooms within the main building and others in a separate block for married students and various flats and houses for those with families.  Outside term time the college is used for summer schools and conferences and the single student rooms are available for delegates.

St Stephen’s has two vended laundries, one in the main building and one in the block for married students, where students can do their own laundry.  Recently both laundries have been completely re-equipped and renovated by Armstrong Commercial Laundry Systems [on a joint venture revenue share basis.  Each laundry contains two of the latest 9kg Speed Queen Horizon washers and two matching Speed Queen dryers – the world’s most popular small tumble dryer.

Bursar, Michele Smith told us that, following indifferent service from the previous supplier, she researched the market thoroughly, including asking other colleges about their experiences.  “There was no doubt that Armstrong were the most helpful”, she said, “and we have been very pleased with the arrangement and the equipment which is definitely better than what we had before.”

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
