Production Facilities

In the last 14 years we’ve invested over £20 million in building state-of-the-art laundry production facilities across England and Wales. It’s an investment that improves our efficiency, reliability and quality of service and sets us apart from our competitors in offering modern, efficient, high quality production facilities.

At Afonwen we have 9 giant washing machines that each take 50-60kg of linen every two minutes of the working day or 275kg of linen washed every minute of the working day!

We have 18 ironers each specialising in processing key products and we have total flexibility to put different products through different ironers so even when there is preventative maintenance work scheduled we can keep working.

Our 14 automatic towel folding machines use incredible air blasting technology to fold our towels perfectly straight, minimising human involvement and ensuring they’ll look beautifully folded every time.

Quality control

Afonwen was also the first linen hire company in the world to install a fully automatic quality control scanning technology system on every ironing line that we have.  This monitoring process means all items that don't meet our standards are rejected and never reach the customer.
