New washer supplied by Armstrong to support unit for young adults

Armstrong Commercial Laundry Systems recently supplied a new Amazon W6 6kg washer extractor replacing an older model in Heffernan House operated by West Berkshire MENCAP in Newbury. The laundry also includes a Schulthess washer and a Huebsch LEZ dryer, also supplied by Armstrong.

Heffernan House offers good quality long term accommodation for six young adults with learning difficulties and also has one training suite where a resident with milder learning difficulties can come for up to two years to gain life skills experience which will enable him or her eventually to move into independent accommodation. Each accommodation unit comprises a single bedroom with en suite bathroom, a living room with some kitchen facilities. There are additional common areas where the residents can socialise if they wish. The laundry is used by the staff, and residents with support, and handles all the residents’ personal laundry as well as bedding towels and kitchen linen.

The Amazon W6 is a tough, durable, fully commercial machine designed to fit into the same space as a normal domestic washing machine, featuring rapid cycles and low energy consumption – making it the perfect, economical machine for small business units.

Lorraine Sadler from Heffernan House told us that the machine is easy for the residents to use, and is generally pleased with Armstrong’s products and services.

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

    Shaid Aziz, Bright Wash Launderette
