      Dane Dry Cleaning Systems - suppliers of services to the Dry Cleaning industry for over 25 years

Family Run Sales and Service Company – Striving to Help You
Dane Realstar is a family run company that has delivered exemplary service to the dry cleaning industry for over a quarter of a century.  The founder of Dane, Paul Higgs, has been selling and servicing dry cleaning equipment for over 40 years.  We have unparalleled experience in an industry that has seen a lot of players “come and go”.
Dane’s small team of professionals, including Paul’s wife (Sheila) and Son (Nicholas), understand your needs and the importance of the right service at the right time – on the phone or in person.
Working with the same clients for 25 years
From the beginning Dane has believed in “being there for the long term”, retaining many customers for over 20 years.  We are now working with the second generation of these family-run businesses and plan to be with them for the long term too!
Being there for you means:
•    competitive prices on high-quality new and used equipment
•    first class technical knowledge to solve your problems
•    huge store of spare parts to minimise downtime
•    free telephone technical support

Solving Your Problems Quickly and Keeping you Running

Dane is famous for experience, quick problem solving and rapid response to get you up and running again quickly if you have a problem.

In addition, we have a planned maintenance program aimed at preventing problems before they arise.  Core to this is regular site visits, critical maintenance and good quality machines from the beginning.

This all means that you have less down time and make more money over the life of your equipment.

We Know About the Regulations - keeping you out of trouble

Dane is up-to-date with all regulations, standards and current industry trends via its memberships with a number of industry bodies, including:

Lees Dry Cleaners, St Helens, Lancashire

Tony Lee, a well known figure in the Guild of Cleaners and Launderers and his son Steven were looking for a replacement drycleaning machine.

They contacted Paul Higgs who is a colleague of Tony’s in the Guild.
Paul was able to offer a competitive package to Tony and Steven with the Realstar RS152 machine as pictured.

With microprocessor control, water economising valves, electronic drying control, automatic soap doser and safety locks on all doors, the machine is not only stunning to look at but has brains too.  
The Realstar RS152 is fitted with a second separator and water purifier to ensure solvents are not present in the machine’s waste water.

Tony and Steven chose to have the machine fitted with solvent chiller and still waste pump out.

Tony and Steven are pictured with Paul Higgs of Dane Realstar.
