“Laundry is one of the basic necessities of human and launderers have been serving the society since ages. Absence of any formal organization leaves no choice for the service providers to find answers to their problems and is a big hindrance to evolve with evolving time. It is time of the industry to get its due credit and a connection needs to be established within the various players of the industry. It is time for people within the industry to take up responsibility to come forward and form an association that protects the rights of the members of this society and help them grow”

“If we are dedicating our entire life to this industry then it's the time we must do something which has a constructive and everlasting impact on the industry as a whole. A single man alone can't do much so it is now important to form an association to bring about a dynamic change in the industry and contribute towards the establishment of the healthy trade association with an objective of promoting trade laws and best practices. So let's make this association the voice of the industry where every stakeholder gets an equal opportunity”
