CLEAN to invest £7m in Yeovil laundry development

CLEAN has announced plans to invest £7m in its Yeovil laundry to increase capacity, boost jobs and help it build on its existing success.

The next phase of investment will see the Yeovil site increase its processing capacity by 50 per cent - from 800k pieces of linen per week to 1.2m and introduce 35 new production and driver roles to the existing 261-strong workforce.

So far £2.7m of the £7m investment has been ploughed into the site on the Lufton Trading Estate, financing a 400sqm mezzanine floor and new meeting and training rooms.

CLEAN plans to use the remaining funds to expand capacity further at the site and to invest in new machinery with the aim of making the Yeovil laundry the largest processing site within the group.

Expansion of CLEAN’s Yeovil laundry, which serves customers across South West England, including Premier Inn, Marriott and Harbour Hotels, also means the creation of new jobs for the community and development of its current team.

CLEAN estimates that increasing capacity at the site, which has been in operation since July 2011, will enable it to grow revenue from £74m to £100m by 2023.

News of the company’s investment plans comes following a highly successful period for CLEAN Yeovil.

The site’s team achieved 100 per cent of customer orders for more than 300 days throughout peak season, meaning that over 20m pieces of linen were delivered on time and with no mistakes or returns.

Kevin Godley, CEO of CLEAN, said: “We have ambitious expansion plans for CLEAN Yeovil and this level of investment will enable us to achieve it. The site’s track record for order accuracy is unbeatable. Even the most renowned delivery companies would struggle to successfully achieve this level of efficiency, so we know we will grow from a strong base. We look forward to sharing our plans further with Yeovil residents as we move forward.
