Armstrong supply new commercial dryer to Chepstow Nursing and Care Home

The Priory is a dual registered nursing and care home in Llandogo near Chepstow.  Sitting in three acres of garden with magnificent views over the Wye Valley, the home provides a high standard of care to both short term and respite inmates as well as long term care for those who need it.

The home had dealt with Armstrong Commercial Laundry Systems before, so, when they needed a new dryer last autumn they had no hesitation in going to Armstrong again.  They selected a Huebsch stacked tumbler providing two x 13.6kg capacity dryers – maximising drying capacity and minimising space.

The home has 57 single rooms, nearly all en suite and the laundry handles everything produced in the home – bed linen, towels, dining room and kitchen items and of course all the residents’ personal laundry.  It is operated during the day by head of laundry, Wendy Clayton and a part time assistant, and as necessary out of hours by the care staff.   “Evening and night time us is variable,” Wendy told us, “but I reckon on average the equipment is working 14 hours a day throughout the week.  The new dryers are brilliant, easy to use, efficient and reliable!”

Scott McHattie, manager of the home, also told us how happy they were with the new dryers and with Armstrong’s service.

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!”
