Mr Craig Heathcote, Euroclean
“While we are on the subject of Sankosha can I just say the double legger has been ultra reliable and the pneumatics have never let me down nor do they leak air. Some of the equipment I have owned in the past have been a complete pain from a pneumatic point of view but the Sankosha has been excellent”.
Mr Iqbal, Swiss Clean
“I am very happy with my investment; we were processing 300 shirts per week which took up a lot of my presser’s time and put pressure on finishing the other garments. I met with Matt Dowse, Sales Manager for Parrisianne and after he explained and demonstrated the benefits of the Sankosha shirt system and how we would be able to save time on processing garments, increase our share of the shirt market whilst not compromising on quality of finish I decided it was the right time to press ahead. I have had my machinery installed for over 6 months now and the quality that we get is very high and we have more than doubled our shirt market”.
Mr Sayed Sami Haider, Masterclean
“We currently are making use of the staff that we have available and are able to operate these machines with 2 operators and minimal touch up, this has not affected the level of quality that we pride ourselves on, in fact we have had very pleasing comments from our customers who have noticed the improvement in quality of shirt since we have installed our new Sankosha machine.”
Mr David Peris, Kensington Dry Cleaners
The story of Kensington dry cleaners is one of a successful company who moved into their own production of shirts about seven years ago. At the time they where processing about 300 shirts per week, but like most dry cleaners they were finding it hard to process such a small number of shirts within their normal processing plant.
Parrisianne Dry Cleaning Solutions Ltd were invited to help the business solve this problem and a Sankosha CN567E Single buck shirt finisher and Sankosha CN660E collar cuff press were installed, within weeks the shirt volume grew and the General manager Mr David Peris could not believe the ease with which the large number of shirts were being finished and too such a high standard. As the business grew the CN567E was changed for a CF161E double buck unit and the CN 660E was replaced with a LP300E rotary collar cuff unit.
When the decision was made to purchase a second double buck, Parrisianne Dry Cleaning Solutions Ltd were again invited to quote for the new pieces of equipment and a LP185E and LP370E were ordered, along with a glowing reference on the quality of the previous Sankosha equipment that had been supplied by Parrisianne Dry Cleaning Solutions Ltd. Mr Peris mention’s “We have had our machines for over five years and they worked six, sometimes seven days a week and they had never had to stop production and had only replaced pads and covers and a couple of small air valves”
Mr Sheikh, Valet Dry Cleaners
Valet Dry Cleaners were employing extra pressing staff on a part time basis to process, now in 2012 and with only 2 staff in total are processing in excess of 1,000 shirts per week Valet’s owner Mr Sheikh comments “Previously it seemed like hand finishing our shirts was taking up 75% of our working week, now with the Sankosha we are finishing all our shirts in 3 hours a day saving not only time but labour costs. Yes the Sankosha is a more expensive option but quality comes at a price”
Mark Agca, DryCentre Ltd
“After discussing with Matt the struggle we were having processing the shirts by hand he arranged for a viewing of the latest Sankosha. I cannot thank Matt & Parrisianne enough, the service I received was excellent, within 3 days of the initial meeting at the beginning of December 2011 we had placed an order and the machinery was delivered on 23rd Dec & unbelievably was installed on Boxing Day. Now not only are we processing more shirts but we are finishing them quicker saving me labour costs and freeing up employees for other important roles in the business. Better still more shirts, less time has actually improved the quality of finish & our customers are delighted”
