About

The Society was formed in 1951 when a group of laundry managers thought it would be a good idea to meet regularly to exchange information.

Sixty years later and our Society is a thriving, professional association, which has gained the respect of all those associated with the laundry / linen services / textile industry.

Links have been developed with organisations such as HEFMA, TSA major chemical, textile and machinery suppliers and the Society is frequently invited to comment on legislation through the Department of Health.
