When you’re looking around for a commercial laundry specialist, it can be difficult to know who to choose.
Do you go with who’s local to you? Or perhaps the company that’s been established the longest? Or maybe factors, such as team size, online reviews and response rates are among the deciding factors?
All of the factors that we’ve listed above play an important part in helping you determine who to choose, and quite rightly so, but there’s also another bit of key criteria that should influence your decisions too – accreditations.
Industry accreditations and partnerships are a clear sign that the commercial laundry specialist you’re talking to is a) professional, b) trustworthy and c) will provide you with the highest quality products and services. And being the industry leaders that we are, we have several of them.
Here’s what our accreditations and partnerships say about us…
Miele Professional Partnership
We’re proud to say we’re one of Miele’s Professional Partners, which means we have the experience and knowledge to provide you with the best possible solution from Miele’s market-leading range of commercial appliances, including specification, installation and service support.
Gas Safe Register
All of our engineers are Gas Safe-registered, which means they’re qualified to work with gas appliances within the commercial laundry world should they need to as part of their maintenance and repair service work.
This shows that we’re committed to providing a quality management system. Our ISO9001-approved systems include electronic invoices and purchases that are designed to help reduce paper wastage and make sure our account records are accurate. (For more details about ISO 9001:2008, visit http://www.iso.org/standard/46486.html).
This accreditation demonstrates that our environmental management systems meet the latest ISO 14001 standard criteria. This means that our laundry and warewashing solutions include products that use low washing temperatures and our engineers use Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs) to cut down on paperwork. We also use satellite tracking to plan our service jobs more effectively so we can save on fuel and reduce our overall CO2 emissions. (For more details about this industry standard, visit http://www.iso.org/standard/31807.html).
Our British Standard OHSAS 18001 accreditation shows how committed we are to health and safety and complying with the latest legislation so that our working practices and those of our engineers are safe and sound. It also helps us to provide the best possible working conditions and workplace health and safety in line with internationally-recognised best practice.
We’re continuously adding to our list of professional accreditations and partnerships and are happy to talk you through any of them in more detail with you. Your commercial laundry appliance supplier should have details of their accreditations on their website or other marketing literature. If they’re not readily available, don’t be afraid to ask about them, any professional organisation will only be too happy to share these details with you, we know we are.
