WSP through the years

  • 1993 – Founding The experienced control engineer Maarten Ploeg founded Wasserij Service Ploeg (WSP) because he wanted to focus exclusively on automating laundry facilities.
  • 1999 – In-house manufacture of transport systems WSP designed and built its first transport systems in 1999. Many of the early conveyor belts are still demonstrating their value for our customers.
  • 2001 - WinWash The production visualisation was initially achieved with Unix operating systems and industrial terminals. With the arrival of Windows, our professionals soon switched to programming in Windows and Visual Basic environments. The result: WinWash. Today WinWash is a familiar name. It is the brain of the laundry facility, controlling the logistics and production processes of more than 200 laundry facilities worldwide.
  • 2010 - Acquisition of production facility in Germany Since the company's founding, bag rail systems and conveyor belts had been purchased. In 2010 WSP decided to start producing internal logistics systems in-house. The primary motivation was to gain greater control of quality, cost price and delivery reliability. To achieve this, WSP acquired a complete bag rail production facility, including staff, from Lavatec in Sarstedt (Germany).
  • 2011 - Name change After 18 years the company name changed to WSP Systems BV. With the customer base becoming ever more international, the new name was more appropriate. In addition, the word 'systems' clearly reflects the nature of WSP's services.
  • 2012 - Laundry Dashboard Market demand was growing for an easy way to collect useful information at the operational, tactical and strategic levels and to make it available to both production staff and management. In response to this, in 2012 WSP launched the management tool Laundry Dashboard.
  • 2015 - Complete UHF RFID integration In recent years WSP has been experimenting avidly with RFID technology and partial solutions. In 2015 WSP achieved the first laundry facility for person-specific laundry in which the UHF RFID technology was used from start to finish. From the container scan, soiled laundry sorter, hanging clothing, dry-cleaning, flatware section, packet sorter, packet scan and labelling right through to the container outbound scan and passing on the invoicing details.
  • 2016 - WSP concepts In 2016 WSP decided to also offer integrated solutions in the form of concepts. These concepts combine transport systems, control, and the link with other systems in the laundry facility. With its software, systems and services, WSP is perfectly placed to act as a system integrator, offering and integrating a total concept.
  • 2018 - New production facility in Amerongen Owing to continued expansion the specialist in internal laundry logistics operations, outgrew the existing accommodation, and in April 2018 WSP Systems moved into a second production facility in Amerongen (NL). Here, production of all the hardware components such as conveyors and bag-rail systems is carried out under one roof after which they are extensively tested.
  • 2017–2019 - Product development From 2017 until 2019 WSP focused on investing in the development of WinWash 2.0, Laundry Dashboard 2.0 and Smart Customization. Smart Customization enables to build customer specific solutions with as many standard components as possible. So the usual high quality against a competitive price.
  • 2020 – Aim: The laundry of the future WSP has a clear aim for the laundry of the future. The laundry facility in 2020 has reduced its wage costs by 40%, machine capacity utilisation is 90% and productivity per m2 has increased by 20%.
