Home   News   4 Reasons Why We Are the Best Choice in Plant Automation

Softrol has proudly served the garment and laundry industry since 1987. Here are just a few of the many reasons to choose Softrol for all of your automation and management needs:


Efficiency and Productivity

Efficiency is everything in a laundry facility. That’s why every Softrol product is designed to decrease your workload and increase the amount of linen you can process. From rail systems that replace traditional carts to automated sorting that can replace almost an entire crew of operators, Softrol can get your entire plant running like a well-oiled machine. 

Solutions for Every Problem

Whether you need to automate your material handling or your wash aisle, Softrol has already designed the perfect solution. Our line of innovations ranges from material handling to process control, and we have options to fit every member of the laundry industry. Some of our most popular designs include the Catalyst chemical delivery system, which disperses perfectly-measured cleaning agents into every wash load, and our hands-free AutoSort system, which can identify and organize up to 12,000 garments per hour.

Retrofits and Upgrades

Switching over to Softrol doesn’t mean you need to replace everything in your plant. In fact, our solutions are carefully designed to work within the structure of your current facility. We can attach wash aisle automation to your current machines, upgrade your sortation deck with a cart dumper, and even run rails along the ceiling to preserve that precious floorspace.

Total Plant Integration

Every Softrol solution can be integrated with our Total Plant Management software. View detailed reports on employee productivity and utility usage for every aspect of your plant. We can install new wash aisle controls to existing machinery including automation, change your material rail system into a virtual and manageable system, or even re-control your entire rail system. You can also keep track in real-time with LOIS, our remote management system that can be accessed from your smartphone or browser.
