The National : JUNE-SEPT 2017
BARRY DEACON Lindus Dry Cleaning Services is a big fan of Red Box, and Barry Deacon, an early part of the Lindus success story with Serge Pelleri. Barry was his usual passionate self, and it is astonishing what this man has to share. Barry said that one of the contributing costs factors at a dry cleaning plant is Preventative Maintenance. Do you have a plan at your plant, or is it “panic stations” when something you have long neglected “suddenly” goes horribly wrong. Too many operators think of Preventative Maintenance as a cost, instead of a business operating expense. There is a difference. Energy and Wages costs, besides rent, are two of the biggest cost factors in your business. Looked at another way, Energy and Labour EFFICIENT are major considerations for SAVINGS within your business to make it more profitable. Barry said his company offers the Dry Cleaning Made Easy Management System, and by adding this system to your current, existing manual operation, working parallel to your current start up, it will save you time and money. For example, image you leave home in the morning and already, the daily start up of your boiler system has kicked into gear because it is automated to do so? What if instead of forgetting to regularly blow down your boiler vessel at the recommended pressure, it happened automatically, including the purging of the boiler sight glass? And not only your boiler, your air compressor cannot operative efficiently if it is holding water. An automated blowdown of your air compressor can remove water build up. This can all happen while you are driving to work, saving you time, and perhaps even wages if you are currently paying someone to come in early to do those jobs.
