NEW jobs are on the cards at laundry business Iron Maidens.
It has installed a new washing machine, with 10 times the capacity of a household appliance to spearhead further growth after turnover doubled in 2014.
It is a personal triumph for owner Sharon Bridgett, who set up a small laundry business in her home garage after being made redundant 15 years ago.
Now Iron Maidens provides a commercial laundry service to hotels, restaurants, spas and B&Bs across Staffordshire from premises in Longton.
Sharon said: “2014 has been our biggest year of growth yet and 2015 is set to be even better.
“Domestic machines generally take loads of around six to eight kilos and the new machine is even a third bigger than other commercial washers.”
