Renzacci UK recently partnered with UK Fashion & Textile Association (UKFT) enabling firms purchasing a new wet cleaning system to receive free 12-month UKFT membership. The agreement gives businesses access to a number of member benefits, including free business advice and support, networking opportunities, marketing support, access to seminars and training.

UKFT took the responsibility for championing the dry cleaning, wet cleaning and high street laundry services from its federated member, the Textile Services Association (TSA), in 2018. It is the UK representative for GINETEX care labeling symbols and also sits on various BSI/ISO committees, which impact the entire sector.

The association also acts as a voice between government and industry and represents the sector in areas including the Sustainability in Textile Care Committee and the Minimisation of Plastics in Textiles, according to a report from Renzacci.

“This agreement is part of UKFT’s commitment to creating the right environment for the garment and textile care industry to thrive and we look forward to welcoming new companies into our network,” said Martin Jenkins, UKFT Project Manager.
