Logistics firm Torque has invested £1 million in a garment processing centre at its Wortley warehouse in Leeds.
The facility includes a conveyor for unloading and loading, as well as housing quality control; steam tunnelling; pressing facilities; boxed to hang and bagging functions. It can also provide Ozone treatment to eliminate mould and other contaminants.
Processing manager Neil Hewitt said these processes could “give a renewed source of vitality to a well travelled and often cramped product, bringing the appearance back to fresh, pristine and instantly saleable clothing.
“Whether customers opt for tunnelling, pressing or another one of our value added services, a sold garment far outweighs the costs and ultimately makes a difference to the bottom line.”
