For Yongxiang, proven and certified safety with regard to quality and hygiene in the shape of certification to RAL Quality Certification Mark 992 was seen as particularly crucial: ‘The provision of proper hygienic textiles is the top priority for our industry. Our customers can rest assured that our laundry consistently satisfies the highest international quality and environmental requirements. The proven and certified safety guidelines mark us out from other service providers and can thus help us to build on our position.’

The Quality Certification Mark is exclusively awarded by the Gütegemeinschaft sachgemäße Wäschepflege (German Certification Association for Professional Textile Services), which is also located in Bönnigheim.
