Markus Schad, Regional Managing Director Cleanrooms & Healthcare, adds: "Our customers work with the highest requirements for the decontamination of their workwear. We meet these requirements by certifying both our laundry and personnel. We can also meet special customer requirements at the new location.

Thanks go out to our team on site, who made it possible to start production at the beginning of January this year - even under difficult conditions" Markus Schad is pleased to report.
