Setting up a commercial laundry is not just simply buying a washing machine. You need to buy a laundry equipment which is energy efficient, reduces manpower and is safe for operations. The technology is already evolved and available in the European and American markets. It is only a matter of adopting that technology and implementing them in India. At present, the market is little immature but is slated for exclusive growth in the near future. If you look at the market dynamics today, there is a lot of interest that is being generated from various quarters which were not even expected. Laundry Care Expo is just the beginning…– Hasnain Mansoorali, Head of Operations, SpinNPress
