About Us

Linen and General, established in 1970, has been serving the trade for 48 years. We have serviced hospitals, hotels, institutions and the trade with our product range that consists of bed linen, towels and kitchen linen.

One of the most important facets of our success and constant growth over the years is our personal touch and no-nonsense approach towards quality and consistency.
Our Mission, at Linen & General, is to supply the trade with linen of the highest quality at the best possible price, anywhere in South Africa and beyond its borders.
To accomplish the stringently high levels of service that we set for ourselves, Linen & General has recently invested in a new, modern cut-make-and-trim (CMT) facility in the heart of Pietermaritzburg, the bustling capital city of KwaZulu-Natal. We have additionally engaged the services of highly experienced machinists and product developers to ensure that our goods are of the highest quality and international standards. Our central production controls ensure that quality efficiencies are met at all times.
Ready-made, off the shelf, core-line products are also available by special request.
Our wholesale division for the hospitality and medical sector is staffed by friendly, well trained sales consultants who are more than willing to provide assistance and helpful guidance to all areas of the market from 5 Star Hotels, Luxury Lodges, Guest Houses, B & B’s, Backpackers, Institutions & Corporates, Health & Beauty Spas, Sport Establishments and now Hospitals and Clinics, and any other outlet requiring our products.
We have consultants based in CapeTown, Johannesburg, Pretoria, Durban and George (along the Garden Route) to provide personal visits within defined and acceptable zones (travel-wise) from these bases.
A tele-sales team is also on hand to offer advice and sales support services to customers outside the above stated areas - you can e-mail or phone us for further assistance.
The web-site serves as a platform to showcase a range of selected products. Should there be a need to request alternatives to our listed products we will endeavour to source these for you.
