Lynx Dry Cleaning Supplies (Lynx DCS) has announced that it has acquired the wedding and drycleaning arms of the Eastpac Group. All customer business was transferred across to Lynx at the end of March. Harry Rahman, director at Lynx Dry Cleaning Supplies commented: “We believe this exciting acquisition will help with the longterm growth of Lynx, opening up different and new lines of business. Even though 2020 was a difficult year for us all, Lynx wants to grow, develop and diversify, to protect its future.

“It is an absolute pleasure to be associated with Eastpac. Our plan is to continue the good service to the loyal customers and to enhance the range of products we provide. We’re a long established supplier within the drycleaning and laundry industry offering quality products along with a quality service. We pride ourselves on having a wide range of products and services that are transferable

Lynx takes on wedding and drycleaning arms of Eastpac to the bridal market.”

In a statement to its customers Eastpac announced: “All wedding and drycleaning supplies will now be handled by Lynx DCS. As Eastpac continues to progress our exciting story, we have decided that all our wedding and drycleaning customers would be much better served by a business dedicated to this particular industry. “For many years now, Eastpac has consisted of four divisions; wedding, dryclean, retail and industrial. As consumer trends have changed, many of our key product lines have become more difficult to source in appropriate quantities and at reasonable prices. Therefore, we have taken the big decision of moving the dryclean and wedding supply services over to a company who is dedicated to this industry, and who can source all the appropriate products and more besides. As a result, we feel that Lynx Dry Cleaning Supplies are in a far better position to supply you.”

Lynx Dry Cleaning Supplies turned 15 last year. It started in October 2005 in a single railway arch, supplying a single product (Dowper perc) and has over a very short period grown to supplying literally everything a drycleaner/launderer may require from its three purpose-built warehouses in Hainault, Essex.
