Our laundry processes secure that your workwear always remain the required safety qualities and standards, such as chemical resistance and hygiene for example. We repair and replace damaged workwear at our laundry, so that your employees stay safe at work and can focus on their daily tasks.

Save time and money

Our workwear service includes everything from acquiring the garments to laundry, maintenance, delivery, storing and even discarding of the textiles, so you can be sure there will be no hidden costs along the way. You don’t need any capital investments to get started – you only pay for the monthly leasing.

With our workwear service, you and your employees save valuable time not having to worry about cleaning, maintaining and storing your company workwear. Instead, you can focus on your core business.

Easy workwear management

When the process is automatised, your work gets more efficient. Our service helps to reduce workload, to improve processes, to save money and time. In practice, this means, for example, right workwear and textiles always available in centralised intelligent storage and more transparent reporting that helps to develop your business. As a result, you get savings as well as see a rise in employee satisfaction and customer experience. Sounds good?

We use smart technology to make sure the right workwear, textiles, and equipment are always available for people who need them. You do not need to fill up your storage with superfluous textiles when you can trust that you always have the necessary quantity of workwear in your storage. Our Smart Solutions helps you to have the right quantity of workwear for your employees at all times. No more lost workwear and time-consuming inventories – Workwear Service makes workwear management effortless and brings cost savings in the long run.

Service transparency with smart technology

Our smart solution is about using smart technology on workwear to enable perfect days for our customers. RFID technology-based solutions enable online reporting in real time and allows a transparent service for you.

Our main goal in digital development is to provide worry-free, need-based service to our customers. For this, we aim for more transparent service by adding RFID (radio frequency identification) tags to our workwear. With a technology-based solution, you are able to follow for example:

  • the overall workwear usage
  • the quantity of workwear in your storage
  • the next delivery dates
  • the quantity of workwear on delivery
  • inventory management
  • online reporting in real time
Employee safety and well-being

We make sure that our workwear collections always apply with legislation and standards. No matter your industry, with our workwear service you can guarantee that your company always meets the requirements for workwear safety and hygiene.

Providing your employees with quality workwear, specifically designed for the occupation, not only gives a positive business image but also shows your employees you care about their wellbeing and comfort. Having clean and appropriate clothes for the job always available decreases the time your employees have to spend on cleaning and maintaining their own uniforms, thus improving the work life balance and wellbeing at work, increasing productivity.

Sustainable choice

We have designed our workwear to be durable and repairable, in order for them to last longer in use. When our workwear can no longer be used for their original purpose, we recycle them into new products or discard them in a sustainable way. Our laundry processes also ensure that hazardous waste coming off the garments, such as oil for example, can be disposed of responsibly.

We have considered our impact on the environment in every stage of our product and service design and can actually offer you a workwear solution that is much more sustainable than buying workwear.

"I think the workwear service has worked well. It's pretty convenient when you can just slip into your clean work clothes every morning, and you don't have to worry about bringing them home to wash. The fact that the clothes are delivered straight to your locker is also a plus."

FAQ

Frequently asked questions

Is it not cheaper to buy workwear?

As a one-time purchase, taking the plunge and buying workwear seems like an attractive solution. However, the care of the clothing is an essential factor in the final cost, as well as garment repairs, replacements, and logistics. Buying workwear includes a lot of hidden costs you may not be taking into consideration. Our workwear service is always a more affordable solution when it comes to overall costs – it includes everything and saves you the stress of handling the arrangements by yourself, for example:

  • Acquiring the garments
  • Cleaning and maintenance of workwear
  • Meeting the legal obligations and standards for workwear
  • Lost garments and replacements of damaged workwear
  • Seasonal changes in workwear needs and storing the garments
  • Logistics arrangements between laundry service and your facility
Can the workwear be customised for my company needs and fitted for my employees?

Our existing workwear collections are fully customisable whether you want to add a pocket somewhere or change some buttons. If your company requires a fully customised workwear solution, our designer team will help create unique company workwear specifically designed for your needs.

We want to ensure the safety and comfort of your employees when using our workwear and therefore fit all the garments before delivery and order custom changes to them if your employees need for example, shorter sleeves or legs on certain pieces of workwear.

What is the delivery time for workwear?

Once you have ordered your new Lindström workwear, we always agree separately about the delivery time. Before the delivery, we make sure the workwear fits all employees properly and make any modifications needed. The final delivery time depends on the number of employees and the extent of customisation on your workwear.

Is all workwear pretty much the same?

Workwear can vary immensily in terms of quality and meeting safety standards. We have designed our workwear to meet the legal obligations and standards, such as protective qualities and hygiene requirements of different industries and offer you workwear solution that is suitable just for your needs. Renting wokrwear from a reputable source, you can be sure that the garments and accessories are constructed from time-tested, durable, and safe materials.

What is the difference between cleanliness and hygiene?

93% of people consider their workwear clean after washed.*
It is a common misunderstanding that clean would equal hygienic but neither home washing nor regular laundry services meet the hygienic standards of many industries. Cleaning only removes visible dirt, whereas hygienic cleaning also eliminates invisible dirt, bacteria, and other pathogens. For many industries, home washing or regular laundry services simply do not meet the industrial and legal requirements and therefore impose a risk for both employees and employers with responsibility for product safety.

*Data from the European Textile Services Association (ETSA).

How can Lindström help us in reaching our sustainability goals?

We aim to get more value from existing products. That is why we repair more than 4 million garments yearly and promote reusability, where the footprint is shared by several users. Customised garments have 30% higher carbon footprint than our reusable Lindström collection.

Around 60% of the CO2 impact comes from washing the workwear. We have optimised our washing process and have halved our water and energy consumption per washed textile kilo during the past three decades.

We only produce new workwear when necessary, so there are no unused garments in our customers’ stocks or capital tied up in the inventory. We maximise the textile lifespan with designing for long life with durable materials, repairing and reusing.

In the end of their life cycle our workwear is given a new life as a different product or as raw material for various industries. By 2025 we aim to recycle 100% of our textile waste. By 2035 we will provide you with carbon-neutral workwear service.
