RAL Quality Certification Mark for Professional Textile Services

Award for Bardusch Company in Hungary

BÖNNIGHEIM (ivs) The bardusch site in Mosonmagyaróvár is one of the first laundries in Hungary which was certified in accordance with the strict hygiene regulations of RAL-GZ 992/3 relating to linen from food processing businesses. Ludger v. Schoenebeck, Managing Director of the German Certification Association for Professional Textile Services, presented the RAL certificate to Attila Oravecz, Managing Director of Bardusch Bértextília, and his team during an official event with invited guests. Dr. Livia Kokas Palicska, Institute Director of INNOVATEXT Textile Engineering and Testing Institute Co., and Valeria Király, Director of the Hungarian Association for Textile Cleaning also found words of praise for the company's performance and the successful audit.

“We serve customers in an area between Budapest, Vienna and Bratislava,” reported Attila Oravecz, “and we pay particular attention to the quality of our service. The provision of hygienic textiles is top priority for our company. With the RAL certificates for professional textile services, we can show our customers that they can rely on our performance on a day-to-day basis.” The RAL Quality Certification Mark 992/3 ensures that specific hygienic and operational requirements relating to the reprocessing of textiles from areas in which foodstuffs are produced, handled or sold are complied with by the laundry company.

The site in the small town of Mosonmagyaróvár is right in the three-country triangle region of Hungary - Austria - Slovakia. Since it was founded in 2002, it has established itself in all three countries with its comprehensive laundry services. In addition to textiles from food processing businesses, the range of services also includes workwear and a mat service. Around 4 tonnes of laundry are washed and maintained by approximately 70 employees each day. Bardusch regularly invests in the Hungarian subsidiary. For example, in 2015 the site opened a new 1,700 m2 hall for its laundry service. Bardusch also attaches great importance to environmental compatibility in Hungary. In the immediate vicinity there is a waste-water treatment plant which ensures the environmentally compatible treatment of industrial waste water. At the site itself, the boiler house has optimised energy consumption as the result of converting from steam to gas operation.

Clear guidelines for quality and hygienic conditions make RAL-GZ 992 the world's leading quality assurance system for industrial laundries. The Quality Certification Mark is awarded exclusively by the German Certification Association for Professional Textile Services in Bönnigheim subject to the applicable test specifications. Checks are carried out regularly on site and during actual operations to ensure compliance with its strict hygiene and technology requirements.
