Recent Western Cape Business News
That freshly-laundered feel is about to come to none other than the Cape Town-based Bardusch industrial laundry after Bidvest Laundry Group announced what amounts to the start of a new cycle for the 130-year old brand. The acquisition of Bardusch by the First Garment Rental division of Bidvest Laundry group is with immediate effect.
Hans Hunink, Managing Director of Bidvest Laundry Group said, “The Bardusch acquisition will help cement our position by giving Bidvest Laundry Group a true national footprint." Bardusch SA is a leading independent laundry providing some 14 000 workers across 98 different client companies with clean work clothes every month.
Bardusch is an established brand known for its service, highly-skilled people and an impressive corporate customer base. Hunink believes that these two pioneers of the laundry industry with their combined wealth of knowledge will enable the development of creative solutions to industry challenges such as the rising cost of utilities.
According to Carl Gibbons of First Garment Rental, "Our operations will undergo certain structural changes aimed at seamlessly integrating our biggest asset to date into the Bidvest Laundry Group." Minimal retrenchments are expected.
