Stafford Posh Wash rely on commercial dryers from Armstrong

Man at Posh Wash launderette using laundry

When Mohammed Salim, owner of the Posh Wash launderette in Stafford, needed to get new dryers, he went to Armstrong Commercial Laundry Systems having been very pleased with dryers from them in another launderette in the past.  Armstrong supplied and installed four gas headed 2 x 14kg Speed Queen stacked  dryers.

Posh Wash, situated on the outskirts of Stafford near the large MOD Beacon Barracks, has a large and varied catchment area.   “In addition to local residents,” Mohammed told us, “we get a surprising number of tourists from all over the world, some staying at the bed and breakfast accommodation in the surrounding countryside and some en route to the Peak District and the Lakes.”

Having owned launderettes for 26 years, Mohammed has a lot of experience and knowledge about what customers like.  He believes that launderette customers need to feel safe, and that many prefer to use a service wash rather than sit in the shop for some time.  He told us that is why the launderette is fully attended and open from 8am-8pm seven days a week, running service washes including a duvet service throughout the week.  “We also live on site so there is always someone around.  Our service washes are very popular,” he said, “and we do a lot of washing for local football, rugby and other sports clubs.”

Simple to use, reliable machines are also obviously very important to the success of a launderette operation.  These Speed Queen machines are very simple to use, and with the stacked arrangement, can handle two large loads in the same footprint as a single dryer, maximising space for the operator.  “I have been very pleased with the new dryers,” Mohammed said, “and I know my customers like them too.”

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
