Blycolin purchases Wasserij Klein’s corporate activities

Blycolin takes over a company that has built its knowledge and expertise in laundering hospitality linen since 1937. Nowadays, Wasserij Klein has 35 employees. The company has a processing capacity of 70,000 kilos of laundry every week. Wasserij Klein will continue to operate under the name of Blycolin Laundry Kolham.

Strategic takeover

The takeover fits Blycolin’s strategy to increase its own laundry capacity. Important values of Wasserij Klein, such a customer-orientation, focus on quality and continuous innovation, match Blycolin’s core values very well.

“With this takeover, Blycolin now adds the eighth laundry to its portfolio of laundries. The takeover will help us realise the intended growth of our company and secure the continuity of our services to our customers”,
Marc van Boekholt, CEO of Blycolin states. For those same reasons, Blycolin took over a large laundry in Heerenveen in March of 2019 and early 2020, a takeover of a specialised laundry near Rotterdam followed.

Wasserij Klein and Blycolin have been working together intensively since 1988. Owner Peter Heller will continue to provide support to the laundry, but also wants to expand his horizon and focus on other activities.

Blycolin and Heller will not disclose any financial details regarding this takeover.
