CLS Processing Facility Expansion: July Update

July Plant Update

2022 has been a busy year for CLS and our customers. We began the year making additions to our Manchester plant and announced our goals last month. Since then, we have made a great deal of progress. Once we’re finally finished, we’ll be much more efficient when fulfilling the needs of our clients while also taking on new ones!

Things Are Moving Quickly

We are steadily increasing the size of our Manchester facility with 11,000 square feet of new space to work with. By the time we are finished, our washroom capacity will increase by 50% thanks to a monorail and some new equipment. Just as things are moving quickly with our expansion, these new additions will also speed up and enhance our laundry processes. We will be able to fully automate everything from soil slinging to washing, drying, clean slinging, and clean sling delivery to feeding stations.
