Glenray Industries officially opens new laundry
On 5 April 2019, Glenray Industries welcomed guests to the reopening of its commercial laundry facilities following the devastating fire in May 2018.
Eleven months to the date, Glenray presented a state of the art facility, that provides linen services throughout the Central West whilst providing employment for people with a disability.
The Diocese of Bathurst stood alongside Glenray Industries throughout their journey since the fire, offering the site of the former St Catherine's Nursing Home facility to Glenray to use while their premises were rebuilt. Glenray relocated its laundry operations, and some administrative functions, to the former St Catherine’s. This site has a commercial laundry and office facilities ensuring continuity of employment for the team of 70 people employed by Glenray Industries Supported Employment Service.
The journey of resilience and determination was celebrated with The Hon Andrew Gee, member for Calare and Assistant Minister to the Deputy Prime Minister officially opening the state-of-the-art facility, which was followed by a blessing of the facility by Fr Paul Devitt, Vicar General. Diocesan Financial Administrator, Mr Patrick Cooper was also in attendance.
Invited guests were given an in-depth tour around the facility detailing the equipment and practices adopted for energy efficiency and water reduction to minimise environmental harm.
After the official proceedings, the brand new facility was open to members of the general public who also had the opportunity of a guided tour through the facility and were able to meet Glenray’s supported employees.
