Since 2016, Laundry Efficiency has set itself the goal of making the textile care industry more environmentally friendly and sustainable. The advanced business model of encouraging industry to reduce excessive waste, pollution and misuse of natural resources has now been recognized with the UK's highest official business award.
The company is one of only 205 organizations nationwide to have received a prestigious Queen & # 39; s Award for Business: Sustainable Development. It will be honored to use the recognized Royal Warrant for the next five years.
The coveted award is for his outstanding achievement in addressing critical environmental issues in the laundry chain to make the world a better place.
Graham Oakley, Commercial Director of Laundry Efficiency said, “From day one, my goal has been to make the world greener. I am delighted that our advisory services and eco-friendly washing system are helping the textile care industry make critical environmental changes in an affordable way. Winning a Queens Award is proof of the transformation and the high ecological standards that our customers achieve. "
The Queen & # 39; s Award for Sustainable Development isn't the only award that laundry efficiency has won. In 2020, it won Keele University's Breaking the Mold Award for developing a new software system that provides Laundry Efficiency customers with real-time data to help them reduce their carbon footprint.
In addition, Laundry Efficiency won the Staffordshire Chamber of Commerce's Sustainability and Environment Award (2020) and the FSB's Green Business Award of the Year (2020, 2019, 2018).
Graham Oakley, who runs the company with his father Colin Oakley, founder and managing director, said: “With the UK reopening, the need for efficient and effective commercial laundries will only increase. This is a great opportunity for business owners and business owners to reinvent their washing and drying processes to ensure a safer, cleaner, and more efficient professional laundry service. Here are some ways we can work with you to achieve this goal.
“Laundry Efficiency’s new antimicrobial Wash & Protect range is one way to do this. Our new chemicals use silver ion technology, which inhibits the survival of bacteria or viruses that may be present on linen. It also reduces odor-causing bacteria, which leads to cleaner, fresher results. Ultimately, when you use it in your wash cycles, you play an active role in containing and preventing viral and bacterial pathogens that live on linen. It's so effective that laboratory tests show linen can stay pathogen free for up to three months after washing – a claim that has been confirmed by independent testing under ISO22196: 2011. "
