CWS Boco, Cork

The Irish business of CWS-Boco was not always as successful as it is today. In recent years and under different ownership the business was under threat from high costs on one side, and low priced contracts on the other. With the takeover by CWS Boco the opportunity was seized to restructure the entire business, closing several smaller plants in the process and focussing the main linen production on a new plant located on the outskirts of Cork. CWS-Boco itself is a division of The Haniel Group, a family owned €27.3 billion turnover group of...

Victoria Hospital Kirkcaldy, Scotland

In 2008 the Victoria NHS Laundry was struggling to deal with the workload being processed through the 2 Senking tunnels they had installed some years earlier. George Ronald, the Estates Officer responsible for the engineering and building aspects of the plant had picked up on a reference to ‘side effects’ mentioned in the Aquatherm brochure that he had received – in particular the claim that waste water heat recovery reduced drying time of tumbler driers. With the increased load that the laundry was being asked to process, drying had...
