The evolution of Richard Jay
Our family-owned Australian business launched in 1969 as a single laundromat in Adelaide. Since then, we’ve grown into an internationally recognised corporation providing laundry, warewashing and chemical dispensing solutions for hospitality, healthcare, government, education, mining and community operations of all sizes.
We have an impressive history because we have always looked ahead and embraced new technologies to simplify and streamline laundry and warewashing processes. With the future in mind, we adopt sustainable practices at all levels of the business. We are continuously identifying new ways to help our clients practise infection control and boost wash performance while reducing their environmental impact and utility costs.
That Richard Jay feeling
When people think of Richard Jay, they think of industry experts who are knowledgeable, reliable, energetic, safe and truthful. Our business has embodied these values since we first launched in the 1960s. No matter how much we grow and evolve, Richard Jay will continue to be guided by these values for as long as we’re in business.
At Richard Jay, we believe all Australians deserve clean sheets, clean dishes and clean clothes to wear.
