Robert Stewart started cleaning grease and stains from the clothes of meat workers and caterers in 1979, gaining a steady flow of customers as he took on laundry challenges that others couldn’t tackle.
Today, the company he founded, Complete Workwear known as Gerrbik Laundry Services, has built up a broad client base, laundering millions of items each year in two major Tullamarine laundry facilities.
Australia’s first Aboriginal-owned commercial laundry is also the nation’s largest Aboriginal-owned laundry and Robert’s daughter Nicole, who is now CEO and owner, has built an award-winning business certified by Supply Nation.
The company has built an outstanding reputation for price, service quality, and reliability and today provides laundry services for 19 airlines, dozens of hospitality clients, universities, manufacturing facilities, and government departments. Equipped with state-of-the-art commercial washing equipment, the company is differentiated by its commitment to staff and service.
