New awards to recognise International Uniform Supply Chain

Leading RTO and exhibition join forces to launch the Professional Clothing Awards and reward exceptional workwear, corporate clothing and PPE from around the world.

Now in its 5th year, the Workwear and Corporate Clothing Show has raised the bar once more by introducing the Professional Clothing Awards to its 2012 line-up.

This exciting new event will combine the show's prestigious Business Manager Awards with new supplier awards – as well as the SATRA PPE Innovation Awards to create an ambitious international event.

The categories will take in the whole working garment industry – from products, components and materials to full uniforms and processes – and entries will be judged on their practical benefits to the user, the supply chain and the environment.

The Business Manager Awards in 2009 & 2010 rewarded buyer-supplier partnerships for their exceptional dedication and innovation displayed in the development of top-to-toe uniforms for corporate clothing, workwear and PPE.

The event was a huge success for two years' running and got its organisers at the Workwear and Corporate Clothing Show thinking about the rest of the industry.

“As well as rewarding the buyers and suppliers that produce bespoke uniforms within predominately managed contracts, we wanted to include the many other businesses that make up the supply chain for these uniforms, and whose products make a difference to the daily lives of workers,” Workwear and Corporate Clothing Show managing director Yvette Ashby said.

“This is how the seed for the Professional Clothing Awards was planted. Whether they manufacture fibres and fabrics, supply stock garments or distribute footwear, all businesses in the workwear, corporate clothing and PPE industry will now have the chance to be recognised for their important work.”

The Professional Clothing Awards will incorporate the Business Manager Awards categories for 'Business Manager of the Year' and 'Best Uniform in Corporate Clothing, Workwear and PPE'. The event will also introduce a number of new awards for suppliers, ranging from 'Best Fibre and Fabric Innovation' and 'Best Website' to 'Best Managed Major Contract' and 'Best Managed Boutique Contract'.

But that's not all. To reflect the major growth market of personal protective equipment (PPE), the Professional Clothing Awards will contain the brand new SATRA PPE Innovation awards. These awards will recognise the manufacturers of PPE products, components and processes that push boundaries in technical innovation.

World- leading research and technology organisation (RTO) SATRA is the ideal partner to head up this special section. The company's CEO Austin Simmons said: “SATRA is accredited as a Notified Body under the European PPE Directive for EC Type examination and certification, final product quality control and quality of production for most types of PPE including safety footwear, clothing, gloves, and head, fall and eye protection. SATRA's technical teams have a wealth of knowledge and expertise so they know how to get it right first time when it comes to research, testing and certification.”
