About Johnsons Hotel Linen
Johnsons Hotel Linen, part of Johnson Service Group PLC, is one of the UK's largest high volume hotel laundry and linen providers, created by the amalgamation over recent years of several high quality family laundry businesses including Afonwen, Bourne, PLS and, our latest acquisition at the end of 2019, Fresh Linen.
We’re known collectively as Johnsons Hotel Linen but, in recognition of the deep family business values and traditions of the companies and people we’ve acquired in recent years, have two sub brands: “Johnsons Hotel Linen by Afonwen” (which trades across Wales and much of England) and “Johnsons Hotel Linen by PLS” (in Scotland) and, our separate brand, Fresh Linen.
We’re extremely proud to have the benefits of the heritage of being created from leading family businesses but with ownership today under a financially strong and highly supportive PLC, giving us the best of both worlds: financial strength and passionate, local service.
As part of Johnson Service Group PLC, we are one of the UK's leading providers of Textile Services across the UK with sister businesses including "Johnsons Workwear", the leading supplier and launderer of textile garments in the workplace and "Johnsons Hotel, Restaurant & Catering Linen by Stalbridge", "Johnsons Hotel, Restaurant & Catering Linen by South West Laundry" and "Johnsons Restaurant & Catering Linen by London Linen", collectively supplying linen services to hotels, caterers and restaurants across the country including many of the leading restaurants within the London market.
Today, Johnsons Hotel Linen regularly collects, launders and delivers over 9 million items of linen a week. We are trusted by our customers and have developed strong relationships over many years with a wide range of nationwide hotel chains, family run hotels and leisure & gym facilities, many of whom share the same values of offering high class customer service at a cost-effective price.
In addition to investing over £16 million a year in linen products, we have also invested heavily in state-of-the-art laundry facilities so that our equipment is second to none, provides a higher quality and greater reliability than more traditional operators and is at the leading edge of productivity.
Our modern equipment minimises energy consumption, automates our processes and benefits from leading technological advances in automating quality control far in excess of our competitors.
In the Spring of 2020, we are also due to open our £10 million investment in a new leading commercial laundry in Leeds.
Together with Leeds, our eight existing commercial laundries across the UK allow us to offer an increasingly fully nationwide service, sharing best customer practice and enabling our customers to be serviced by committed local businesses wherever their hotels are located offering a consistency of quality, service and product regardless of where the customer is supplied from.
We also benefit from having a dedicated national accounts team for our major hotel group customers and an ability for all customers to be able to access the senior management team who care passionately about ensuring we seek to deliver high quality linen, on time, in full, with no surprises.
We don’t cut corners, we invest in training and rewarding our people and we strive to reinvest and recycle whenever we can. We provide confidence to our customers and are working hard to build upon our reputation as one of the strongest, experienced and high quality teams delivering consistency and reliability at a fair price where we help our customers achieve a cost effective service whilst enabling us to reinvest continuously in our business.
We have one of the most loyal customer bases in our industry, recognising our reputation for pro-active service and being a safe pair of hands! Our leadership team has the most experience of running hospitality laundries of any major national supplier in the UK. Passionate laundry people running a passionate laundry company. Committed to exceeding customer expectations and delivering a first class service.
