Blycolin contributes to the Zuiver wellness feeling
Besides catering to hotels, accommodations and restaurants, Blycolin has also become a specialist in managing the linens and linen management for wellness centers. As of October 2011, we welcomed Spa Sport Hotel Zuiver as a customer who elevates wellbeing and luxury to glorious art in Amsterdam.
Spa Sport Hotel Zuiver is beautifully located in the Amsterdam woods. With over 500,000 sq ft of sports and wellness facilities, this is a small oasis in the oasis of the nation’s capital. “In Zuiver, you can relax, slow down, refuel. And above all: enjoy that heavenly feeling of luxury”, Wellness Manager Edwin Kempes says. Zuiver hits the mark, also due to its special combination of possibilities and high standards. “We have experienced a huge increase in the number of visitors and guests. Of course, that is very good, but it also posed a bit of a dilemma for us. More visitors means more use of the linen in the spa, the sports facilities and the hotel. Up until now, we managed our extensive linen package ourselves, from purchase to laundry. Because of the user increase, we sat down to calculate whether we were doing the right thing. It appeared that we would be better off to completely outsource that part of our management. The partner we found to do this, is Blycolin”.
Blycolin takes over Zuiver’s machines and deploys new linen. The laundry of all Zuiver’s linen is placed with laundry service Pantar in Amstelveen. This laundry is a sheltered workshop, where people with disabilities work. Besides the fact that this laundry amply complies with our quality standards, this too is another step towards Corporate Social Responsibility. After all, this creates jobs and opportunities for people who also deserve these. “This also fits Zuiver’s image”, Edwin Kempes states. “And there is another issue. Research shows that washing ‘at home’ was far less sustainable than industrial laundry. So, this way, we catch several birds with one stone”.
Zuiver presents a combination of luxury, sports and relaxation with great perspectives. The increasing success of the company alone shows that. “Our guests can visit the exclusive spa. They can pick and choose from our extensive amount of treatments, among which various massages, facials, manicures, pedicures, wrappings and hammam. Besides this, we have a modern fitness room, there are several tennis and squash courts as well as 31 luxurious hotel rooms”, Edwin Kempes summarizes. When you visit Zuiver, and we recommend that you do, you too will experience the special feeling of relaxation and space.
