Quality and compliance

Elis has a unique advantage in terms of having an in-house microbiological testing laboratory UKAS accredited to ISO/IEC 17025:2017. This carries out a range of activities and investigations in support of EN 14065, demonstrating due diligence through scheduled factory monitoring and ensuring the products we supply consistently meet quality and hygiene standards.

A more sustainable approach

Elis is committed to sustainability and has been a circular economy player for over 75 years. Our business model prioritises rental over purchase, and the services we offer provide a sustainable alternative to linear models. This helps to minimise resource consumption, reduce emissions generated and lower our customers’ carbon footprint.

We have set a target to reduce or reuse 80 per cent of end-of-life textiles by 2025. As part of our ongoing Healthcare Textile Improvement Programme, our Linen Return Profile (LRP) initiative is designed to deliver improved environmental performance, enhanced service levels and better value.

This is expected to have a significant impact on Trusts’ carbon reduction levels on the journey to net zero, while also enhancing linen availability.

Success stories

  • I’ve worked with Elis on a number of previous contracts, and have always found them to offer good value for money, as well as being easily contactable and having an in-depth understanding of our customers’ needs. In the 15 years I have known Elis I have never had an issue with stock. If there are items we need more of, then Elis will do their best to get them to me urgently - and they have not failed yet! The contract mobilisation was seamless, and all deadlines and deliveries were met.
