Douai Abbey Monks rely on Armstrong commercial laundry equipment for clean habits!

Douai Abbey in Berkshire is a beautiful monastery, home to 15 Benedictine monks.  In addition to accommodation for the monks, the complex includes several conference rooms, a dedicated guest refectory with a 5-star rated kitchen, a 22 room guest house and some self-catering accommodation in converted workers’ cottages.  This part of the monastery hosts individuals and groups for retreats, conferences and relaxation breaks away from the hectic bustle of 21st century life.

The abbey has its own laundry where the monks do their personal washing and the housekeepers do all the laundry associated with the busy hospitality facilities.  The laundry operates a selection of Huebsch washers and dryers all supplied by Armstrong Commercial Laundry Systems. Fr Oliver, bursar at the abbey, told us that the machines are kept very busy, work well and have been very reliable.

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

    James Suter, The Gliffae Country House Hotel

    Shaid Aziz, Bright Wash Launderette
