Southern Aluminum, the leader in linenless table innovation and design, is helping facility managers determine the actual ongoing costs of using outdated linen covered tables. Facility managers can now readily evaluate their ongoing operational costs by inputting their specific site data into Southern Aluminum’s online Return on Investment calculator at http://www.southernaluminum.com/roi. Managers can input the number and size of tables per room, quantity of personnel hours expended per event for setting up linen covered tables, average hourly wage of the employees, and number of events per week to calculate the ROI of their linenless tables.
The resulting analysis displays the difference between using costly linen covered tables versus upgrading to modern Southern Aluminum linenless tables. For example, a banquet facility can save over $57,000 annually by switching to modern linenless tables, if they are using a total of 150 standard six-foot long tables for five events per week with an estimated set-up time of 2.5-personnel hours at a $12.50 per hour. The primary savings is acquired from the reduction in costs associated with the linens. Personnel hours saved by the reduction in set-up time can then be allocated to other projects that are commonly placed on the backburner due to time constraints.
“Our lightweight linenless tables save businesses thousands of dollars in laundry services, linens, and linen replacements while increasing operational efficiency,” says Amanda Blanchard, marketing director, Southern Aluminum, the leader in linenless table innovation and design.In fact, LEED certified buildings such as the Ritz Carlton, Charlotte, NC; Hyatt at Olive 8, Seattle, WA; and JW Marriott, Indianapolis, IN are using Southern Aluminum linenless tables.
