Every retail or service business is dependant on 3 main elements - customers, operators, and suppliers. The launderette industry has only a few dedicated companies providing services, equipment and spares, but they are long-established and have excellent knowledge of the equipment found in High-Street shops. The majority of these companise recognize the importance of our Association and support us in various ways and, from time to time, have offers or discounts for our Members. We are pleased to publicize the services of our official Supplier Members (in alphabetical order):
In the millennium a number of individuals who had collectively worked within the laundry industry in excess of 80 years decided to bring their knowledge together to offer a range of laundry services. The origins of our company came from the launderette industry. Due to the fact that there was not enough service engineers Associated Group Services Limited (AGS) was formulated.
We have been in the launderette business since 1982; running a large chain of launderettes for many years. We have become well versed in all aspects of the laundry/launderette industry. As of today’s date we still run and operate launderettes.
Initially, AGS began to service, repair, install and supply used equipment but as word of mouth spread, the good reputation of the company began to grow. AGS was initially appointed the main coin-op dealers for Electrolux Laundry Systems and are now in fact one of their main dealers.
From the company’s birth to the present date we have grown in size and are now able to service all of London and the Home Counties. We supply equipment across the UK including the Channel Islands and even worldwide. Whilst we do not have a direct service presence nationally we can advise you of local engineers.
The most important thing we offer our customers is a good service and this starts from the moment you call us – a real person answers the phone. Sometimes (during busy periods) the answer phone has to assist but please be confident we will get back to you as soon as possible.
All repairs are logged and obviously emergencies are given priority as we know that money, time, customers and goodwill are being lost whilst plant/machinery are inoperative.
It is our intention to remain a company devoted to our customers and offer a personal service where sometimes advice is the only answer. We are happy to share the benefit of our knowledge.
So what exactly do we do? Apart from offering free, honest advice we supply, service, install and maintain laundry/launderette equipment. We specialise in supplying and installing water heaters. Our warehouse is full of not only new machinery but used appliances which are all cleaned and tested before they are offered back on to the market. Stocks of spares are also available. www.agslimited.co.uk
