WILKINS LINEN IMPROVES PROCESS
With a redesign of his soil handling system, David Friday of Wilkins Linen achieved impressive improvements in production and accuracy while reducing administrative cost. Wilkins worked with Automation Dynamics to modify their Accelerator, a system designed to sort and count downloading information into route accounting.
He reports that, using 2 people, hourly production went from 2500 pieces to 4800 while accuracy improved from 75% to approximately 95%. Administrative time for producing daily variance reports was slashed from 3 to 4 hours to just 30 minutes.
K-BRO LINEN RE-ACCREDITED
The Healthcare Laundry Accreditation Council (HLAC) re-accredited the K-Bro Linen Systems operating plant in Burnaby, British Columbia. Edmonton, Alberta-based K-Bro Linen Systems is the largest owner and operator of laundry and linen processing facilities in Canada.
HLAC is an independent, nonprofit organization that inspects and accredits laundries that process reusable textiles for hospitals, nursing homes and other healthcare facilities – based on the highest, professionally recognized standards for patient safety and infection prevention.
Note: Universal Unilink Members receive a special discounted rate for the HLAC accreditation process.
