About the company

Bluewater Linen launched in Spring of 2017 to help New Mexico hospitality operators process their laundry in the most sustainable and cost-effective way. Every year hotels spend hundreds of thousands of dollars in labor, water, energy, chemicals, linen replacement, and administrative costs to provide towels, sheets, and other goods to hotel guests.

The process is not only expensive, but it requires plenty of heavy lifting by employees constantly loading, unloading, folding, transporting, soaking, and even scrubbing stains to achieve an acceptable result. We decided to find a better way.

We researched the best automation and technology in the US and Europe to find the most efficient and safe way to process hotel linens. Through our research, we designed a new state of the art laundry processing facility that can process over 4,000 pounds of clean linen PER HOUR using a fraction of the water, energy, and resources a typical on-premise laundry consumes. We are excited to offer the growing NM hospitality industry a sustainable laundry solution.
