BRIEF HISTORY OF McCLURE INDUSTRIES PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT
Del McClure, the founder of McClure Industries, is a veteran of the laundry industry.
As a maintenance engineer he saw that no thought had been put into the design and
manufacture of carts used in laundries. He recognized problems in design and construction:
carts that couldn’t hold weight without bulging, carts that were difficult to maneuver,
and carts that caused back injuries from repetitive movement.
He coupled his insight, engineering experience and his knowledge of fiberglass construction
and developed the line of Sanitrux carts. McClure Industries can count several “firsts”.
The Spring Platform cart answered the problem of emptying heavy loads piece by piece.
As the pieces are unloaded, the platform bottom raises, eliminating bending and
decreasing the time it takes to unload a cart.
Another “first” is the much copied Turn-About cart. Shelves hold clean, folded laundry
for dispensing. When empty, the shelves convert to sides creating a bin-style cart
for dirty laundry…one cart that does two jobs.
In the 1980’s, Del realized the involvement of carts in laundry fires. He and his
team developed a new fiberglass mixture that is fire retardant. McClure Industries
spent thousands of dollars having this new fiberglass mixture tested by independent
laboratories to scientifically measure and ensure it’s fire retardant properties.
Sanitrux now bears the highest seal of approval, certified Class II Fire Retardant
by Warnock Hersey/Intertek. This certification ensures that each Sanitrux cart meets
all requirements of all State and National fire codes, including California Title
Having a great deal of insight, Del McClure recognized another problem in hospital
laundries: the issue of re-infection. He and his team developed the Saniwash cart
washer to alleviate two problems: 1)re-infection, 2)harsh chemicals that could not
be applied by hand. Today, because of health concerns about hospital acquired infections,
Saniwash is widely acknowledged as an integral part of hospital and commercial laundries.
McClure Industries continues to recognize problems and develop systems to solve
them. All of our products are built by craftsmen who carry on the legacy of quality
construction to each detail.
