It all began back in 1958 when Eduard Bedeer and Maria De Coster took over a laundry in the heart of Mariaburg. Little did they know that it would grow into one of most important players in the textile cleaning sector.
In 1962 Eduard and Maria needed to expand their premises so bought a building on Kapelsesteenweg. What began as “self-washing” evolved into a laundry service which included ships’ laundry. Then began the cleaning and hiring of stain resistant mats. Eight years later they opened a second Luxe Droogkuis Bedeer. Eduard and Maria had never expected that this branch would be so successful. The official opening was barely over before they were informed that people were queueing round the block. This was one of the great successes of their career.
After many years the drycleaning department concentrated on the specialised cleaning of interior fabrics.
