The London Linen Group has achieved Runner Up status in this year's ACE Sustains Corporate Awards! Recognising top achievements in sustainability, the awards have a high profile in the industry; we have won previously for CLS's sustainable laundry. We won with a new break-through innovation that is the first of its kind for the industry - a closed loop supply chain whereby we now recycle all of our textile waste which is then used to make Bags for Life. 100k of these bags will be available across 728 M&S stores nationwide - you will be able to purchase them from September. Every bag sold raises money for UNICEF - it is hoped initially the contribution will be in excess of £250k.
Market leading London Linen Group is from today now part of the Johnson Service Group. Roger Oliver, former owner of The London Linen Group, felt the time was right to sell the market leader in London’s catering and restaurant market. He is confident the joining of our two companies will maintain the excellent growth achieved over the past years. He believes there are good opportunities in the markets the company serves and that the management team is strong and capable of ensuring the careful development of the business into the foreseeable future. Johnson Service Group is looking to develop the group even further, recognising its core strengths for further future growth. Within London Linen Supply, it is definitely ‘business as usual’ - the branding, employees and location will remain the same. Customers will see no difference in operations; the day to day running of the business will be unchanged. Clients can expect the same high quality linen hire and laundry, accompanied by excellent customer service. The London Linen Group and Johnson Service Group have similar family ethos. The group will continue to focus on servicing the restaurant, casual dining and contract catering markets and be a significant contributor to the Johnson Service Group. This is a wonderful opportunity to carry on moving the group forward, growing as we have done over the past 80 years. We are looking forward to a strong exciting future dedicated to serving our dynamic customers.

Do you have everything in place to ensure that your customers will have an enjoyable time in your establishment? Is everything set up for you to have a stress-free time? Linen hire and laundry are big things to think about – in order for the festive season to run smoothly in your restaurant it is best to plan things early.
