Congratulations to our sister business, Camplings Linen, which has just been recognised in the 2018 Center Parcs Supplier Awards, winning the top title in two categories.
On Tuesday 25th September, we were honoured to attend Center Parcs’ eighth annual Supplier Awards, hosted on a beautiful sunny day at Elveden Forest. Recognising and celebrating the best of more than 1,800 suppliers from throughout the UK, we were delighted to be named the winning supplier the categories of:
- Delivering Excellent Service – Sustainability Initiative
- Delivering Excellent Service – Local Supplier Elveden Forest
This year’s Center Parcs Supplier Awards were the biggest yet, with 500 nominations submitted across 13 categories; a 22% increase on last year’s awards.
Richard Turvill, our managing director comments; “Swiss Camplings has provided an excellent laundry service to Center Parcs Elveden Forest since it first opened in 1989. And we’re absolutely delighted that our first-class service, plus our commitment to reducing the impact on the environment has received this fantastic customer recognition. To receive the national award for our sustainability efforts is particularly pleasing. It shows that what we’re doing is having real results for Center Parcs, ensuring its environmental impact is kept to a minimum."
These award wins arrive just two years after the launch of Swiss Camplings’ £5 million state-of-the-art commercial laundry in Great Yarmouth. Investing in the latest laundry technology, kit and chemical processes, Swiss Camplings is well positioned to deliver a sustainable, energy efficient service for Center Parcs and all its customers.
Richard adds; “As a commercial laundry, we are inherently big consumers of water and energy; but since launching the new Great Yarmouth site in 2016, we have radically reduced our impact on the environment. Our green initiatives include re-using and recycling water, using ‘cool chemistry’ to wash at lower temperatures and scrutinising operational data to ensure we’re as sustainable and efficient as possible. But we constantly look for other ways to improve.”
“Thank you to Center Parcs for this recognition, which is testament to the hard work of our team who deliver an excellent, first-class laundry service to all our customers, every day.”
