sheets per hour, while the towel folder folds 650 towels and the blanket folder folds 400 blankets. Founded in 1976, R&F Mechanical Services Ltd has prioritised sustainability as a core element of its long-standing success. This commitment extends to the work scopes undertaken by the Ballymoney-based firm, as well as the dedicated individuals who execute these projects. With a significant number of employees having served the company for over 25 years, R&F Mechanical Services emphasises longevity and continuity. Over half of the company’s workforce has received in-house training, further demonstrating their investment in cultivating skilled professionals. Commenting on the Ulster Hospital Laundry project, William Fleming, Contracts Manager for R&F Mechanical said, “One of the standout features of this project was the works that encompassed the installation of three 600kW steam

boilers and associated plant. The installation of this and other specialist systems was challenging due to the spatial restrictions within the plant room and constraints on where the distribution pipework could be placed inside the laundry hall given the presence of the hanging bag distribution system and the laundry equipment itself. “Closely collaborating with our electrical counterpart, we overcame challenges and delivered a high-quality installation within tight space restrictions.” Concluding, William said, “This project showcases R&F’s expertise in steam distribution systems and complex installations to a very high quality and it has led to further collaborations with Ganson.” The healthcare sector projects have been a core competency for R&F Mechanical over the past few decades. However, the firm’s expertise in mechanical and building services installation, especially

in steam distribution systems and plant rooms, has enabled them to successfully complete projects for clients in various industries, such as large food processing factories and distilleries such as the Bushmills distillery.
