Clear and flexible

Day in, day out, Nedlin resolves complex logistical issues. To that end, we draw on our many years of experience in the health-care industry.

We operate from a single location, which allows us to be extremely flexible. At our ultra-modern laundry facilities, which boast highly innovative machinery, we can process 300,000 kg of laundry a week. Nedlin also manages all of its own transportation. And since your contact person also works at this location, the lines of communication are short. We realize that certain situations require prompt action. When that happens, we are a partner you can rely on.

Cleaning

Responsible laundry services

Thanks to our highly innovative industrial laundry facilities, among the most modern in Europe, we can ensure that your linen and clothing come out of the wash 100% clean. Furthermore, we can achieve this using only very little water, energy, and detergent. For example, did you know that we only need three litres of water per kilogram for a wash that would use an average of 20 litres of water per kilogram in the home? Thanks to our Process Guard system, we can monitor the microbiological condition of the laundry process in real time.

In the health-care industry, the microbiological condition of linen is extremely important. When it comes to hygiene, we do not take any risks whatsoever. That is why we adhere to a stricter standard than the national hygiene regulations.

  • Environmentally-friendly, energy-efficient washing processes
  • ISO 9001, 14001, 50001 and RABC certifications

Products

Linen

Medideck

Comfortable bed-making system

Of course, we also supply duvets, usually in combination with jersey fitted sheets. Nedlin has a special production line that guarantees the quality and hygiene of your duvets. We would be happy to tell you more about this. If you choose our Medideck system, you can pick your own level of quality and colour scheme. Did you know that Nedlin was involved in the invention of this type of duvet for the home?

Uniforms

Attractive clothing

Your employees’ clothes are one of your organization’s main calling cards. At the same time, your employees need their clothing to be comfortable and functional in order for them to perform well. At Nedlin we understand this and we have a wealth of expertise in the field of presentable uniforms for care staff and all support services. We can provide you with independent advice so you can choose a clothing package that meets your employees’ wishes and matches your organization’s house style.

Scrubs

Don’t take any risks in the operating theatre

Nedlin proves that comfort and hygiene are not mutually exclusive. We offer all kinds of clothing and textiles for operating departments such as clean air suits and particle-free operating room blankets. We do not take any risks when it comes to the microbiological condition of the linen. That is why we adhere to a stricter standard than the national hygiene regulations.

Disposables

In one go...

In addition to standard linen, Nedlin also provides incontinence products, disposable wash cloths, and cleaning cloths. We deliver these products to each department together with your regular deliveries. You will no longer need to worry about the logistics for these products, nor will you need to maintain a centralized stock.

Residents’ laundry

A personal system

Nedlin realizes how important it is for your residents to take care of their personal clothing. That is why we have developed a unique system for cleaning and managing personal laundry. This system makes it possible to monitor, sort, and deliver the laundry for each individual resident. We use a direct debit system to charge the costs directly to the residents of your institution. That means that your residents have a direct relationship with Nedlin. As such, they are guaranteed the best possible service and your institution has nothing to worry about it.

“From our point of view, every issue is unique. We do not take a generic approach.”

Our references

We work for several organizations in the health-care industry. We have spent years working with these partners in order to perform better every day.

Driven by progress

Innovation is in the DNA of this family business. This means that we do not just talk about things; we have been putting innovative ideas into practice for 65 years. Would you like to know more about the smart solutions we have come up with for the health care industry?

Medideck system

In the 1990s, Nedlin and a number of its colleagues developed this medical variant of the personal duvet. Nowadays, it would be hard to imagine the health-care sector without this bed-making system.

The idea was a simple one: an easy-to-wash product that is a duvet and cover in one. The result is a hygienic, efficient solution for making beds. The bed can be made up and cleaned in an instant. In combination with a jersey fitted sheet, the Medideck makes life easy for nurses and is extremely comfortable for patients.

Nedlin has perfected the cleaning method for the Medidecks to ensure maximum durability and quality.

Process Guard

In 2012, Nedlin was one of the first laundry services in Europe to introduce a so-called Process Guard system. This system uses key parameters to monitor the microbiological condition of the wash in real time. This makes it possible to intervene in the process the moment a deviation is identified. This is an improvement on the classic measuring method, whereby a sample is tested and only 48 hours later is it possible to determine whether the wash was effective and killed all micro-organisms.

Track & Trace

The arrival of the PC in the 1980s made it possible to process large quantities of data automatically. This development, in conjunction with the arrival of the barcode system, enabled Nedlin to become one of the first laundry services to track and trace its clothing. This made missing clothing a thing of the past.

At the time, Nedlin invested a lot in developing these new technologies even further. It spent a lot of time and energy on improving the dot code (later the barcode), clothing software, and the necessary readers. The challenge was to be able to trace the textiles individually and process them automatically, even after several washes. One important milestone was the creation of a sorting machine in 1987 that rendered the manual sorting of textiles obsolete.

In the 1990s, the use of the barcode was supplemented by the introduction of the industrial washable chip. This is now a multi-read chip that bundles all information and makes it possible to scan several items simultaneously.

We can use this system to identify what exactly enters and leaves the laundry facilities. Furthermore, every item of clothing can be meticulously sorted per carrier. We use our Track & Trace system as standard to process clothing and individual personal laundry.

Internal logistics

Of course, as experts in the field of logistics, we have designed our own laundry facilities to be extremely efficient. To guarantee maximum hygiene, dirty and clean textiles are kept strictly separate at our facilities. Our efficient, automated order pick system means that we do not need a lot of packing positions and that your order is delivered to you as efficiently as possible. We also use a first-in-first-out system so that clean laundry, like sheets and other textiles, are not left lying around for long and you are always guaranteed to have fresh linen. You are very welcome to come and take a look at our company. We would be happy to give you a tour.
