Tri-State Laundry Equipment Provides Rigging

A few years ago Moneysworth Linen Service, a large commercial linen and beach rental company that services North Carolina and Virginia, called us for steam pipe installation for a couple Parker Boilers and stack declaimers they’d purchased.  As the relationship developed, we learned that they were in the middle of a $5 million expansion, which basically doubled their capacity, and we were fortunate enough to get to be a part of that expansion project.  The job, which consisted of rigging all new and existing equipment into place, included installing a new 12-module Kannegiesser tunnel washer with an extraction press; 6 new dryers with shuttle system for auto loading of the dryers; and 3 new iron lines complete with feeder, ironer, and folder-stackers.  One of the ironers was a specialty ironer for high quality flatwork linen of which is only one of two in North America.


 


This unique experience taught us something – that we are really good at rigging and installing large quantities of new dry cleaning equipment.  This experience also equipped us with all the necessary tools – from lifting straps to toe jacks – to take on more of these projects, regardless of size and weight.  And since this job, that’s exactly what we’ve been doing.

Our most recent rigging project, which was for Pratt Abbott Uniform & Linen Rental in Westbrook, Maine, consisted of job site rigging equipment from containers, uncrating, assembling, rigging into precise locations; leveling and bolting for the Kannegiesser Technicians; pulling miles of wire and installing controls to make the tunnel-dryer-shuttle come to life; and making huge differences in the customer’s linen production capabilities and cost of operation.
