AmeriPride Services, a leading uniform rental and linen supply company in North America, announced new shop uniform offerings designed with automotive customers in mind and inspired by car culture. The Diamond Plate Shop Shirt – made exclusively for AmeriPride by Red Kap – and Red Kap Performance Shop Pants and Shorts offer durability, comfort and convenience to make rigorous automotive and other industry jobs a little easier.
The Diamond Plate Shop Shirt was designed specifically for the auto industry and is offered exclusively for AmeriPride customers. With a unique and eye-catching diamond plate pattern, the polyester/cotton blend shirt wicks away moisture to keep wearers cooler, while resisting stains and holding color. The lightweight and breathable Ripstop fabric further resists damage better than most other workwear fabrics.
Other features include placket-covered snaps to protect delicate surfaces such as a car’s paint job, and reinforced pockets to keep small parts close at hand. It also offers a sewn-in collar for a professional look, and a dropped shirt tail that provides full coverage when crawling under, in and around vehicles.
Made with the industry’s first industrial-friendly stretch canvas fabric, the Performance Shop Pants and Shorts allow for easy movement and help customers withstand the rigors of a typical day in the shop. A hidden waistband closure keeps buttons covered to avoid scratching cars, while reinforced cargo pockets and specialty pockets allow easy access to tools, keys or a phone. The work pants are styled to fit like a relaxed jean, with the professional look and design detailing of an expert mechanic’s work pant. The shorts come with a 13-inch inseam for a current, updated look.
“Many of our customers need apparel that allows them to work comfortably and efficiently under demanding conditions, and our unique uniform options from Red Kap give them the edge to get the job done, and look professional while doing so,” said Andrew Steiner, Vice President of Marketing and Customer Operations. “We’re a one-stop solution provider, which means we’re always working to anticipate the needs of today’s customer and strive to deliver products that exceed their expectations.”
