22 March 2024 Cleanrooms

CWS Cleanrooms is a full-service provider and reliable partner for contamination control throughout Europe. By providing various services for high-quality and clean productions, the company is an important part of customer processes.

In March, a newly built cleanroom laundry in Burghausen, Bavaria, commenced operations for the cleanroom textiles and accessories service sector. Building this facility marks a major investment in resource-saving technologies and the cleanroom growth market. Certified work processes and compliance with strict standards governing the construction and operation of the cleanroom laundry guarantee reliable delivery to customers at the highest level of quality. Thanks to its geographical location, the Burghausen site not only processes cleanroom garments for customers from Germany, but also from Austria and Eastern Europe.

Focus on sustainable production and optimised logistics

"We are delighted to be able to open another cleanroom laundry in Burghausen, Bavaria. With our investment in the site, we are taking an important step for the future. We have created a state-of-the-art production facility that guarantees reliability and compliance with quality standards. We have also focussed on sustainability right from the start: the geographical proximity to our customers in southern Germany, Austria and Eastern Europe will make us even better logistically and bring us even closer to our customers. This helps us to save significant amounts of CO2", says Markus Schad, CEO of CWS Cleanrooms.

The start of operations went smoothly: "We were able to start production on schedule on 19 March. Since then, we have been washing under the best conditions here in Burghausen. With the help of our modern equipment, we achieve the best possible washing results and at the same time work resource-efficiently. For example, we minimise our water and electricity consumption with heat converters and quick steam generators. We also have a photovoltaic system on the roof to generate our own electricity from the sun, as well as electric charging stations for cars. With the addition of these washing capacities, we will also be able to meet the growing demands of our customers in the future", says Andreas Winkler, site manager in Burghausen.
