Another Innovation
The TingueFelt® for Water Conservation

Modern laundries washing with less and less fresh water are finding increasingly high levels of chemicals left on the ironer chests. As the ironer felts absorb this chemical residue, they decay and lose their shape far faster than under more traditional conditions.

But our exclusive TingueFelt® ChemGuard Gold ironer felt provides added resistance to these chemicals to last extra long in laundries trying to save, recover and otherwise conserve water. It's available in 130-, 150-, and 168-inch widths only from Tingue, Brown & Co.

How Starr Textiles Consolidated Routes, Cut Fuel Costs

Textile services companies striving to lower costs, improve service and support safety and environmental performance often invest millions in adding automated equipment, keeping their trucking fleets maintained, upgrading their route management software and launching a variety of green initiatives aimed at reducing energy, water, fuel and other costs. At Starr Textiles, Foley, Ala., Vice President Sales/Service Stephen Florence found a way to address all of these challenges with a single stroke that many overlook for its relatively low investment cost and seemingly low sizzle factor.

"It was a no-brainer, really," says Florence, a 39-year veteran of the laundry industry who launched Starr in 2008. "We found a new laundry cart that fits more linens per truck than traditional carts and it has had a direct impact on our operation and on our bottom line at Starr."

By fitting more on each truckload, Florence has been able to consolidate several delivery routes and cut the overall cost per mile. Click here for details.
