ABERDEEN Laundry Services (ALS) and its Glasgow-subsidiary Cathkin Clean Scotland (Cathkin), have secured Royal Bank of Scotland funding to support operations during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The company, which provides commercial laundry, dry-cleaning and linen hire services to a cross section of essential industries throughout Scotland, has been lending support to the NHS.
ALS has been involved in opening additional supply lines of vital Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and linen for NHS heroes on the frontline.
The funding received from Royal Bank of Scotland has enabled the company to continue to support the increased demands from the NHS in recent weeks. It has also enabled them to retain staff members based at the temporarily closed sites and begin preparations to re-open post-coronavirus recovery period.
Mr Surendra Khandelwal, ALS and Cathkin director, said: “We have been delighted to be able to support the NHS during the coronavirus pandemic, drawing on help from our wide-ranging supply channels as and where required.
“The funding and advice received from Royal Bank of Scotland has been critical in helping us prepare for the temporary shutdown of our hospitality units. Due to this support we are fully prepared to re-open to service the hospitality sector once the lockdown ends.”
