Cumbernauld Nursing Home Adds More Commercial Laundry Equipment from Armstrong

The Darroch Nursing Home in Cumbernauld occupies a 1960s building which was originally a convent.  It has undergone various alterations and developments and is now a 37 bed family run nursing home offering a high standard of care in a homely, friendly environment.  About half the rooms have en suite facilities and all are furnished to a high standard.  Registered nurses and care staff provide 24 hour nursing care.

The laundry has been equipped by Armstrong Commercial Laundry Systems for a long time, but when they moved it to a new room just over a year ago they also needed some extra capacity.  So Armstrong supplied an Amazon 8kg washer and a Huebsch 16kg tumble dryer.  All the laundry from the home is handled on site including bedding, towels, dining room items and personal clothing for all the residents.  Julie Shanks, owner of the home, told us, “We have two full time laundry staff so the machines are in use all day, with occasional emergency use by care staff in the evenings.   We have been very pleased with all the Armstrong commercial laundry equipment and the service we get from the company.”

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.”

    Suzy Brandwood, The Elms School

  • “On average the equipment is working 14 hours a day throughout the week.  The new dryers are brilliant, easy to use, efficient and reliable!”

    Wendy Clayton, Chepstow Nursing & Care Home

  • “The machines are kept very busy, work well and have been very reliable.”

    Fr Oliver, Douai Abbey

  • “That’s the thing with Armstrong, if you ask for service you get it – quickly.  We know we can rely on them which is really important as the speed and quality of the laundry is vital to the hotel.”

    James Suter, The Gliffae Country House Hotel

  • “As before I am delighted with the dryers, they are really efficient and reliable and the customers find them very easy to use.”

    Shaid Aziz, Bright Wash Launderette

  • “We’re delighted with the new dryer. We pride ourselves on a very personal level of care here, keeping up with the laundry and it all coming out looking good is an important aspect of this care and this machine has been excellent since it was installed.”
