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
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
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 19.
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.
