Folding the top tables : HJ Weir Foldmaker 64 and Dash Linen

When Ash Raza owner of Dash Linen was looking to buy a new small piece folder for his thriving laundry business he knew exactly where to turn HJ Weir.

H J Weir supplied and installed a 4 metre Foldmaker 64 exactly to Dash Linens specification.

Ash Raza owner of Dash Linen said: “ I was especially impressed that Ross Weir came personally to visit the laundry and was able to take the order and deliver the machine in a very short space of time. This was critical for us and I really needed the machine in for the busy Christmas period. As always H J Weir delivered on time and the machine is working perfectly.”

Ross Weir Managing Director of HJ Weir said: “ Dash Linen are great customers of ours they understand quality in the work that they do and who they work with. We pulled out all the stops to deliver and install the Foldmaker 64 as per his request. The Foldmaker 64 is predominately used for folding small pieces such as table linen, napkins and pillowcases utilising high quality breaking conveyors. The patented HJ Weir folding method will accurately fold articles or varying weight and sizes with outstanding precision ”

This is another successful install and business relationship for H J Weir a family business based on high integrity and high quality. HJ Weir celebrates its 57th birthday this year, a third generation business of British manufacturing.

A Pristine Partnership

HJ Weir Engineering Co Ltd announces the launch of the new batch washers. HJ Weir is now the exclusive authorised partner in the UK and Ireland for Milnor.

At CLEAN show 2017 Ross Weir MD of HJ Weir Engineering and James W. Pellerin CEO of Pellerin Milnor Corporation started the exclusive partnership. The below photo shows the businessmen shaking hands and holding the document of authorisation agreeing that HJ Weir is now sole, exclusive distributor for Milnor products in the UK and Ireland.

“We are thrilled to be working with the Milnor family brand.  There was a real synergy with business ethics and vision for the future. We agreed the UK partnership because we always want to offer our customers the best quality products that last. We didn’t have a batch washer offering and we always wanted to have the full solution under one roof. The team and myself are very confident our partnership with Milnor is an exciting first step in a long business relationship. We already have had requests for Milnor products and we look forward to meeting many more laundries to showcase the full range.” (Ross Weir MD, HJ Weir Engineering)

HJ Weir are excited to announce the formation of a working partnership with Laco Machinery which enables H J Weir to commit to offering customers a complete “ironer line” combining H J Weir flatwork feeding and folding working with Laco ironers.

The alliance of two reputable family businesses working together to share a network of distributors globally is a welcome feat by many, particularly HJ Weir Managing Director, Ross Weir.

In a statement by Ross Weir, he says that he is “looking forward to the synergy of two family businesses working together to enable us to share a network of distributors globally. The two companies will work together with our collective electronic and mechanical working knowledge to offer customers the complete ‘line control’ and full safety features. HJ Weir will have 3 fully trained Service Engineers that will not only be capable of assisting with Weir manufactured equipment but also that of Laco Machinery Ironers. HJ Weir will carry the full range of spare parts relevant to Laco products.”

The timing is great with the much talked about launch of the New King Ironer. This ironer production has a capacity of 430 kg/hr, a successful patented flexible air-stream chest, working width from 2.5m till 3.5m, very low energy consumption and a 1 roll diameter 800mm with 1.94m ironing length.
