The Sunfresh Story
Sunfresh Linen, first founded in 1998 by the George Family who purchased a small, existing laundry in Ipswich, Queensland called ‘Light Industries Laundry’.
Light Industries Laundry had been established since the 1960s, however, at the time was a somewhat rundown and in desperate need of a complete overhaul. Thanks to energised new owners, and the experience of the existing staff, ‘Sunfresh Linen’ was born.
Over the years, through hard work and dedication, the business has grown beyond expectation, and in 2006 the Ipswich factory went through a major equipment upgrade. New sorting, washing and ironing machines were installed to increase overall productivity.
Sunfresh Linen was now a modern facility and ready for the future.
Sunfresh Linen acquired a second factory by 2009. This was a fantastic and challenging opportunity for the company with growth, however, it did present challenges as the operation now spanned over two sites. As a result of this, a decision was made to move both factories to one central site at Darra, Queensland.
This new factory could not only house Sunfresh Linen’s current equipment, it also had the potential to house new, advanced equipment for ongoing future growth and has aided in the success of the company to this day. By March 2010 the Darra factory was fully operational and the old Ipswich sites now decommissioned.
Sunfresh Linen is one of the largest laundry and linen service throughout South East Queensland and Northern NSW. Servicing areas include Brisbane, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Northern Rivers, Byron Bay, Ballina and west throughout the Granite Belt, Warrick and Toowoomba regions.
Environment and Future
When designing the Darra factory, great consideration was given to water and environmental planning, in order to produce a best practice facility a state of the art plant and equipment was installed so as to provide Sunfresh Linen with an edge in both production costs and quality, allowing these savings to be passed on.
“Sunfresh Linen offers a total management solution to all it’s customers, providing peace of mind and knowledge that all their linen and laundry needs can be met by the one linen service, which still has the feel and contact of a family business.
