Armstrong selected again for small laundry in block managed by Olympia Estates

Linden Gardens

When the equipment in a small laundry in a block of flats managed by Olympia Estates in London needed replacing, Armstrong Commercial Laundry Systems were once again selected to supply the new machines. So at the end of 2012 a Speed Queen Horizon 8kg front loading washer and a matching dryer, both coin operated, were installed at the site in Linden Gardens.

The block comprises 22 rented flats and the laundry area is accessible to all the tenants and is checked three times a week by the management. The cleaning and maintenance team look after it and make sure it is kept clean and tidy.

The Horizon washer is designed to operate with minimum water consumption. It has a large door opening and high spin speed of 1000rpm to help dry the laundry before it is moved to the dryer. Wash programmes are easily adjustable and a digital display provides the user with information, including the remaining wash time. The dryer features a large door for fast loading and unloading, a quiet, efficient blower system with superior airflow and four temperature/fabric selections. It is easy to clean and maintain, and again features a digital information panel.

Michal Dusek, assistant director of Olympia Estates told us he was very pleased with both the equipment and the service provided by Armstrong.

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.”

    James Suter, The Gliffae Country House Hotel
