Armstrong supply new laundry equipment to sheltered housing development in Barnet

Homestead Court in Barnet is a sheltered housing development run by the Home Group, one of the UK’s largest providers of housing and supported housing services.  It consists of 36 one bedroom flats built in 1989.  The development includes a communal garden and lounge where a range of activities are held for or organised by residents.  There is also a communal kitchen for residents who wish to have a party on site.  Staff are on site Monday to Friday during the day and every resident is linked in to a community alarm service.

One of the on-site facilities for residents is a laundry, and during 2015 the laundry needed re-equipping.   The level of use clearly requires commercial specification equipment, so Armstrong Commercial Laundry Systems supplied and installed a Schulthess 7kg capacity free standing high spin washer and an Amazon tumble dryer.  Residents use the machines themselves as and when they want to at no additional cost.

Abu Latif, housing co-ordinator and manager of the unit, told us, “We are very pleased with the new machines – the residents find them easy to use and the wash quality is very good.”

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

    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

    Shaid Aziz, Bright Wash Launderette
