Wales’ Leading Commercial Laundry Service, and probably The Only National Award Winning Commercial Laundry Service in Wales kept superstars feeling a little fresher with unbeatable fresh towels at Radio 1’s Biggest Weekend in Swansea.
Radio 1’s Biggest Weekend came to Swansea’s Singleton Park for what turned out to be one best festivals of 2018 during the 26th & 27th May.
As with all festivals, the combination of beautiful weather and superstars jumping around the stage resulted in a proactive action plan to provide 1400 towels. Radio 1’s festival partner was responsible for ensuring 1400 towels were not only onsite on time, yet beautifully cleaned for some pretty big names to use.
Radio 1’s festival partner faced a little dilemma as they sourced the towels direct from wholesaler. Those within the laundry and linen industry knows that brand new linen is not fit for use. It has to be cleaned to remove loose cotton, lint (linen fluff) and be prepared for use. No big deal when you have plenty of time to prepare and clean the items, right?
The wholesale order didn’t arrive to Singleton Park, Swansea until 12:30 pm. With superstars arriving Friday afternoon, a deadline of 5 pm was set to ensure towels were on-site and ready for stage warm-ups.
We are probably the Only National Award Winning Commercial Laundry Service in Wales, and was chosen as the commercial laundry partner of choice. A contract awarded to service 1400 towels. We were on call in the days leading up to the event, anticipating the delivery of these mystery towels that should have arrived Thursday. Our flexibility of day and night communication provided peace of mind to Radio 1’s festival partner.
In record time, CanDo Laundry Services cleaned 1400 towels and returned them to site in just 3 hours. An outstanding result when left with no time spare to plan resources efficiently. We understood the importance of this event to the local community, and also appreciated our contribution. At the end of the day, our efforts meant that superstars could keep their brows looking fresh.
It’s fair to say many organisations don’t appreciate or even understand the importance of a reliable and consistent commercial laundry service partner. Only when things go wrong do we take a moment to step back and understand the importance of linen. For example, if it fails to arrive on time, or it arrives not fit for use, the ripple of effect on customers and end users could be catastrophic and crippling for many organisations.
Whilst we’re probably the Only National Award Winning Commercial Laundry Service in Wales, we service the entire U.K. If you’re reading this, and have a major event on the horizon or an organisation requiring a consistent and regular commercial laundry service or linen hire service. Give us a call, we’ll be able to help.
