About Balfurd

Our humble beginnings began in 1927. We started as a family business – and we’ve kept it that way!

The truth is that family-owned businesses can provide better service because we care more.

We believe in treating people the way we’d want to be treated. We’ve been doing it for almost 100 years – so we must be on to something!

How do we do it?

We process well over 1 million pounds of laundry per month.

This wouldn’t be possible without two things – our dedication to the newest technology and the dedication of our employees.

We have a 50,000 square foot facility loaded with the latest and greatest technology to increase production and reduce utilities – this helps keeps our outstanding service affordable.

Every one of our employees takes tremendous pride in knowing that what they do every day ends up helping our customers convey a positive image.

Our goal is simple: get the best people, provide the best service!

It’s a family affair

Balfurd has grown over the years and passed down from generation to generation keeping the same strong values and core beliefs over the years.

Arthur Fogelsanger started it all off.
