Dry Cleaning Company Expands Beyond Home Market with Home and Office Delivery
Standish, MI -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/05/2015 -- MW Cleaners is expanding outside its home base of Houston. It is seeking to capture market share in Austin three ways: 1) home and office route delivery, 2) a locker-based exchange system serving office buildings and apartment complexes, and 3) dry cleaning services offered at all 12 Men's Wearhouse/JOS Bank retail locations. Delivering Excellence newsletter is reporting weekly how these trends are changing the growth of various same day delivery programs and organizations.
The central plant is a 12,000-square-foot building in a warehouse district. Its central location in Austin makes it convenient to all retail locations and delivery territories. The plant is designed to handle $5 million in business annually; half of the equipment was installed before opening in summer 2014 and the other half will be installed once volume warrants it. There is a room designed specifically for order tagging; there are five stations, and five more can be added with growth.
The dry cleaning and laundry departments are side by side, providing staff flexibility as well as efficient work flow. Flow was designed to run clockwise through the facility—delivery, tagging, dry cleaning/laundering, finishing, inspection, storage and transport—for maximum efficiency. A dispatch sorting conveyor circling the entire production area allows any person at any department to transfer a garment from one place in the facility to another.
