Spotless opens new laundry facility

Spotless’ new 9000sqm state-of-the-art laundry in Melbourne’s east is now operational following its takeover of Victorian linen and laundry business Cabrini Linen Service in May.

The 9000sqm purpose built, eco-laundry employs 160 staff and features high-tech equipment and water treatment facilities.

Spotless announced in May it had entered into a purchase agreement for the Victorian linen and laundry business, stating at the time that the acquisition was set to double its laundry volumes across the state.

The purchase included the Dandenong South facility as well as a number of new multi-year healthcare laundry contracts, including an initial 10 year contract with Cabrini Hospital.

Spotless operates 16 laundry facilities across Australian and New Zealand.

Last week Downer confirmed it had secured a more than 60 per cent stake in the cleaning, catering and facilities management group – three months after initially launching its $1.3 billion takeover bid.
