We've never stopped evolving

The JLA story began in 1973, when we started out as a family-run business in West Yorkshire. Using the unique insights and expertise we’ve gained over four decades spent as the UK’s leader in laundry, we’ve evolved into a one-stop commercial specialist that now also offers end-to-end solutions in catering, heating, infection control, compliance & safety and commercial detergents.

More than just machines - and more than just a job

As a critical asset and service solutions supplier for more than 25,000 businesses across the UK and Ireland, we understand that our relationships with our customers go beyond installing machines. We pride ourselves on listening to our customers and creating solutions that meet their needs.

However, our product and service portfolios aren't the only areas of JLA that have come on in leaps and bounds since our humble beginnings. Our people - from engineers to contact centre staff and everyone in between - are key to our success.

Our people are our greatest asset

As we’ve grown into a complete business partner, we’ve recruited hundreds of exceptional people that each bring their own unique skills and qualities to JLA - and we're stronger and better for it.

Collectively, over 800 of us now make JLA what it is today – a unique, end-to-end commercial partner that looks forward with excitement while looking back with pride.
