Armstrong reliability again for Buckreddan Care Centre

Armstrong reliability again for Buckreddan Care Centre

Reliability has always been a priority for the Buckreddan Care Centre in Kilwinning, Ayrshire. Armstrong supplied the original laundry in 1986. In 2004 demand for Buckreddan’s high quality care led the company to add another unit and now in 2012 the operation cares for 122 residents and has a nursery looking after more than 60 children.

The laundry is operated by two members of staff and runs seven days a week, nearly 24 hours a day. ‘Support from Armstrong has always been excellent’ says Domestic Supervisor Maureen Donaldson so when the original Huebsch tumble dryers eventually had to be replaced, it was no surprise that Buckreddan opted for two more of the same – gas heated Huebsch 35lb tumble dryers.

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

  • “Our relationship with Armstrong goes back a long way, and they continue to give us excellent service and extremely reliable equipment.”
