Who are we and what motivates us? What is important to our clients? In this magazine, we will take you on a journey through the world of Nedlin.
Expansion enables innovation and transparency
At Nedlin, we work non-stop to improve the quality of the end product and the service we provide to our customers. As our laundry facilities for industrial companies in Hoensbroek have reached their capacity, we are expanding and completely refurbishing this location. This is the moment to implement the latest innovations in our production process and to make sustainable choices. ‘As a family business, we are choosing solutions for the long term,’ says director Stef de Win. He explains the new building plans together with the plant manager, Sven Görtzen.
‘Being sociable is appreciated in every culture’
A family business like Nedlin builds up long-lasting relationships with its employees and invests in people. It is no secret that the company has high expectations of its employees; only motivated go-getters fit into the company's culture. On the other hand, our employees can also expect something in return. Nicole Janssen explains the lengths to which Nedlin goes to ensure a healthy and vital work environment.
Brotherly love and guest experience at Beaumont
Leading successful careers in the hospitality industry in Australia and New York, it was a strange thought that Christophe and Jean-Marc Beaumont would one day continue the life's work of their father. However, this thought became a reality. Joining the company in 2012, the two finally took over the reins from their father in 2014. They now manage Hotel Beaumont in Maastricht and its restaurant, Harry's, named after their father Harrie. Below is an interview with the two brothers, who reveal the ups and downs of this 105-year-old family company.
Working together, caring together
From solar panels on roofs to cleaner waste water and from preventing food waste to providing sustainable clothing for the entire staff. Radboudumc medical centre leads the way for other hospitals in the Netherlands. Alex van der Putten from Radboudumc and Andrea Meuwissen from Nedlin talk about their partnership and the need for sustainability.
Always focused on quality
Nedlin does not make any compromises when it comes to quality. Director Stef de Win and Hospitality Production Manager Björn Frijns discuss perfectionism, light panels, and peanut butter. 'Our strength lies in the fact that we deliver consistent quality 365 days a year,' stresses De Win straight away. 'We do what we promise, regardless of how busy it is. That is something that really sets us apart.'
Safety first at Chemelot
Protective clothing is essential for employees working in the factories at the Chemelot industrial park in Sittard. Marco Spauwen of Sitech Services knows all about this. As Category Manager, he is responsible for the contract for all of the protective clothing used by around 2,000 people every day.
Three generations driven by progress
Nedlin is celebrating its 65th anniversary in 2017. The De Win family has been at the helm of this family-owned business for three generations. Following in the footsteps of their grandfather Jeu and their father Erik, the De Win brothers Stef and Luuk have been running the laundry company since 2001. Erik still works for the company behind the scenes, acting as a sounding board. What does Nedlin’s 65th anniversary mean to the father and sons? And is the drive to succeed really in their genes?
