UClean- India’s digitally enabled laundry and home cleaning services chain, has announced a strategic association with Alliance Laundry Systems, U.S.A.- the largest manufacturer of commercial laundry equipment in the world. All the laundry equipment across all UClean stores in India would be supplied by Alliance Laundry Systems. Given that UClean has plans to develop about 300 to 350 stores on a pan India basis over the next 3 years, this would see Alliance Laundry Systems supplying equipment worth about Rs 35 crores to UClean over the next 3 years. In addition to supplying the equipment, Alliance is also investing their time and efforts in training the UClean team on the nuances of laundry operations and handholding them during the initial teething period.
UClean, with its tremendous experience in franchising and the strong focus on developing a cleaning ecosystem, will help Alliance in developing the Laundromat culture in India. Alliance Laundry Systems is investing their resources in sales and after-sales support system in the country to help credible partners like UClean.
Alliance Laundry Systems is a worldwide industry leader which is helping customers around the globe to find higher profits and success through high-quality laundry solutions. With an objective to see growth opportunities in the laundry segment in India, Alliance and UClean have join hands and working together to usher the “Laundry revolution” in the country.
Talking about the association, Arunabh Sinha, Founder & CEO -UClean said, “We are excited about the huge opportunity that the laundry segment presents in the country. Laundry has existed since the very beginning of time. Unfortunately, the processes and systems used by most laundry operators in India are carried over from the ancient times. Alliance Laundry Systems are the most advanced laundry manufacturing company in the world and hence this partnership would help us build systems that are advanced, efficient and quality focused. Together, we are looking forward to change the way laundry is done in the country.”
Commenting on the same, Neil Ghadi, Country Head India,Nepal and Bhutan for Alliance Laundry Systems, mentions “Alliance Laundry Systems is extremely optimistic and positive on its association with UClean and entry to India. The culture of Laundromats is starting to take roots in India and the conventional players “Dhobis” in India are also moving to sophisticated washing machines to provide best quality service and optimize their time. Alliance Laundry Systems sees growth opportunities in this segment in India and for customers who want to participate in it.”
