The Elms School re-equip their laundries with machines from Armstrong

The Elms School in Malvern, one of the country’s oldest schools founded in 1614, has been buying its laundry equipment from Armstrong Commercial Laundry Systems for many years. The school, which takes boys and girls from four through to 13 (year 8), has three laundries.  There is one in each of the boys’ and girls’ changing rooms that handles all the games kit and swimming towels, and one upstairs which handles all the bedding including duvets, bath towels and the pupils’ and staff personal clothing.  The school operates very flexible boarding arrangements to fit round different families’ requirements – but around 120 of the 170 pupils board at least some of the time.

Armstrong have recently installed two Amazon HSF 11kg capacity washers and two Huebsch 16kg tumble dryers, replacing machines that were installed in 2001 and have been in continuous use since then – so they have given good service! Sandra Beard, head of laundry at the school, told us last year, “The laundries seem to be in more or less constant use, I often start them off at 5.30am and they are rarely finished before 6.00pm.  And when there are matches the changing rooms laundries are often operating during the evening as well.”

Suzy Brandwood, bursar at The Elms, said, “Our relationship with Armstrong goes back a long way, and they continue to give us excellent service and extremely reliable equipment.”

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
