Alfardan Hospitality has announced its agreement with Alex Reid, the UK’s leading provider of laundry and dry cleaning services for global brands, to launch Alex Reid Middle East. With its end-to-end offerings, from designing and building new facilities to fine-tuning existing laundry equipment to providing comprehensive laundry services, Alex Reid provides clients with dynamic, efficient, turn-key solutions regardless of scale and offers a wide range of products from equipment to consumables and software solutions.
Alex Reid’s expansion to the region was made possible after entering into an agreement with Alfardan Hospitality. The new partnership delivered solutions to the newly opened Marsa Malaz Kempinski, The Pearl – Doha, involving the design and installation of laundry equipment by Alex Reid Middle East. At The St. Regis Doha, Alex Reid Middle East specifically refitted the existing laundry equipment per the specifications of the management team to improve the efficiency of the existing platform and to elevate the level of quality to new standards.
Aside from utilizing world-class equipment to both projects, Alex Reid also assisted in capacity evaluation to meet current and projected demand, utility consumption, manpower planning and training, and maintenance services. To ensure the success of the landmark venture, Tim Grice has been appointed as Alex Reid Middle East’s General Manager in the Middle East, bringing his 30 years of industry experience to his current role.
Darren Walker, Managing Director, Alex Reid, said: “With an unrivaled consultancy background spanning 100 years, Alex Reid continues to sustain its leading position in the UK market. We intend to duplicate this success in the Gulf, a key target of Alex Reid, as we begin to serve the thriving local and regional markets. We are confident that our unparalleled expertise in the delivery of world-class turn-key solutions will add real value to the region. What will further help strengthen our presence in the Gulf is our latest partnership with Jeeves of Belgravia and Alfardan Hospitality. Working alongside the two established, prominent companies provides us an edge over the competition. We are fully ready to provide our clients in Qatar and the rest of the region with outstanding professional laundry and dry cleaning services.”
Muhibullah Mani, Chief Operating Officer, Alfardan Properties and Alfardan Hospitality, concluded: “Alex Reid is known for its one-stop solution for all laundry and dry cleaning projects in the hospitality, military and healthcare sectors. What sets it apart from other laundry consultants is its end-to-end service to help prevent and immediately address laundry-related issues. By providing laundry equipment, maintenance and process chemicals, clients are able to meet the requirements of their customers. These are the qualities that we are looking for in a partner – making us fully confident and satisfied with our cooperation with Alex Reid.”
