The National : NOV DEC 2016
FIC THE AUSTRALIAN NATIONAL DRYCLEANER & LAUNDERER NOVEMBER DECEMBER 2016 Christmas column 2016 I know that I say this every year, and I’ll say it again. I can’t believe that its December again and I’m writing my annual Christmas Wish List. Throughout the year, I come up with ideas and sometimes just passing thoughts about how to make a drycleaner’s job easier. Are we missing some products that would improve quality, service or presentation of what we produce that would make our customers happier or our lives easier. Sometimes, my dreams come true. That’s exciting. Years ago, I asked for an “on-board” computer to measure productivity on shirt units. Unipress, among others, made that a reality a few years ago. I wanted a more comfortable environment for pressers and Sankosha, among others, made that a reality. I never forget about the maintenance guy and as a result, shirt equipment is much easier to work on these days. Packaging and presentation are important to me and to your customer; much has been done to improve that. The industry has come a very long way since I entered into it 4 decades ago. So Santa Claus, let it not ever be said that I am easy to satisfy. And I have a few other ideas! www.tailwindsystems.com Don Desrosiers ... I guess that most of you have a collar cone. Many of you may not use it correctly. In order to get the highest quality product, a shirt needs to stay on the collar cone for 30-60 seconds (1 cycle), in exactly the manner that you see pictured here.
