Minda Laundry and Linen Services

Located in a state-of-the-art commercial facility at Aldershot Road, Lonsdale in Adelaide’s southern suburbs, Minda’s Laundry and Linen Services provides professional laundering of clothing and linen for the healthcare, aged care, hospitality and accommodation industries.

In addition to cutting edge technology, our award-winning commercial laundry operation is the largest of its type in Australia, and has brand new, European-designed and manufactured equipment as part of a recent major expansion.

Employing more than 80 people, Minda’s Laundry and Linen Services team have the skills and experience to professionally launder clothing, linen and a range of other items for hotels, motels, hospitals, aged care facilities, government agencies and other laundries in a safe, efficient and environmentally-friendly way.

Under our social enterprise model, supported employees work alongside staff who are formally trained in professional commercial laundry operations. Financial surpluses from the operation are re-invested into Minda’s programs and services as part of an ongoing commitment to the people Minda supports and to the broader community.

A commitment to invest $23m by Minda has ensured the 7-day a week laundry operation offers the most modern equipment of any laundry in Australia. Clever design and facility planning has ensured that the laundry layout includes a structural ‘barrier wall’ as part of Minda’s commitment to quality control. This creates a physical separation between dirty laundry in the washroom and clean laundry in the ironing, packaging and despatch areas.

The new automated continuous batch washing/drying equipment, high speed ironing and scanning equipment and tailored plant layout ensures quality management processing conditions are in place, with fast turnaround times for hired linen products.

A key point of difference our purpose built Laundry and Linen Service has is the fast and efficient commercial linen operations working together with the unique capability to carefully manage personal item laundering of customer owned goods with state of the art individual batch washers and dryers.

Minda Laundry and Linen Service meets all relevant policies and procedures relating to the supply of services that meet Australian Standards and WHS legislation and adheres to AS/NZ 4146-2000 standard for laundry practice.

Minda has a comprehensive environmental operational framework in place designed to protect the environment through a range of measures including modern water, gas and power saving measures, computer monitoring, automated lint filter equipment, use of biodegradable ingredients, compliance with EPA regulations, independent monthly Bacterial Monitoring. These extensive energy and water saving measures ensure that Minda’s Laundry and Linen service is the cleanest laundry in South Australia, with the lowest carbon footprint.
