Quick clean launderette owner describes his dryers from Armstrong as ‘fabulous’!

Quick Clean Launderette

Richard French has owned the Quick Clean Launderette in north London for 30 years. Last year he installed five new Speed Queen Loadstar 17.5kg (347 litre) tumble dryers supplied by Armstrong Commercial Laundry Systems. He is absolutely delighted with the new machines, “staff and customers all like the new dryers – they’re fabulous” he told us.

Situated in a smart residential area, Mr French told us that the launderette had become very much a feature of the community. “My assistant, who has been with me for 15 years, knows all the customers by name – some of them are staff at the big local houses,” he said. The shop is open from 7.00am to 7.30pm and is staffed for most of that time, with a lot of service washes being done. “We get a lot of duvets coming in and have recently bought a larger washer to handle the very large duvets,” he explained.

The dryers are looked after by Mr French’s two sons who carry out the routine maintenance on the equipment, and can usually fix anything that goes wrong.

The Speed Queen dryers are available in sizes from 11kg (217 litre) up to 24.6kg (491 litre). They comprise a high quality, corrosion resistant drum with embossed easy-to-clean front and side panels and a large opening stainless steel door which can open to 180o making loading and unloading easy even with very large items.

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.”
