Do your laundry!

Armstrong provide space saving laundry equipment to international college in Canterbury

Posted by Hannah Vickers | January 23, 2017 | Supplier News

CATS Canterbury is an international college offering a vast range of courses to students aged for 13-22, covering everything from GCSE to International Baccalaureate and University Foundation.

In addition to the academic work, the college aims to help students develop life skills which will better prepare them for university and adult life.  While catered meals are available, the residencies have kitchens so they can cook for themselves, and all students have access to a laundry and are responsible for their own personal washing. 

House parents launder the bedding using the same equipment, except in the largest residence where the bedding is sent out.  Over the past two years, the college has bought eight Horizon stacked washer dryers from Armstrong Commercial Laundry Systems to be installed in several of the laundries.

Nicci Parsons, operations manager at the college, said, “Space is at a premium throughout the college – any room that’s left vacant will be turned into a classroom unless you’re quick!  So the stacked washer/dryers are an excellent solution providing efficient, reliable equipment that can be used by students and house parents in a minimum of space.”
