Balfour Beatty Workplace ties up with Incorporatewear

Incorporatewear is a major supplier of corporate clothing, workwear and uniform solutions to a host of blue chip companies. Recently it has won the contract to supply Balfour Beatty WorkPlace with a wide range of workwear and business clothing throughout the UK.

Balfour Beatty WorkPlace, part of the Balfour Beatty Group, is a market leader in support services to both private and public sector customers. The business has a total workforce of more than 10,000. The company provides facilities management services to a wide range of clients, including the BBC and the Department for Work and Pensions.

Balfour Beatty has a vigorous CSR policy which focuses on sustainable solutions and waste management and these elements have to be upheld in all areas of the business, including clothing. Incorporatewear also upholds these elements and its CSR policy states all fabrics and products are sourced from ethically sound manufacturers.

It was these principles that first drew Balfour Beatty WorkPlace and Incorporatewear together when representatives of both companies attended a conference on sustainable solutions last year. Following further consultation Incorporatewear was invited to tender and were eventually awarded the contract in May 2009 against stiff opposition from other major suppliers.

Speaking of the clothing range, Paula Cannon, Incorporatewear's Head of Design, said, “Our submission included innovative designs which meant that our garments blended style with practicality.Our aim was to clothe the workforce in functional clothing that enhances their professionalism but offers suitable workplace protection and comfort.”

The garment range is extensive and includes corporatewear for office-based staff as well as workwear and safety garments. The clothing collection is worn in a number of work situations including parks, prisons, offices, hospitals and other public and private buildings by receptionists, cleaners, ground workers and engineers.

The range includes polos, fleeces, anoraks, trousers, skirts, boiler suits, knitwear, shirts and blouses, plus accessories such as ties, cravats, knitted hats and baseball caps, leather gloves, tool belts and hi-viz jackets. All products are branded with Balfour Beatty WorkPlace logos and/or tax tags.

Speaking for Balfour Beatty WorkPlace, Mike Thomas, Supply Chain Manager said, “Being a responsible organisation is key to us at Balfour Beatty WorkPlace so working with Incorporatewear to help us source garments from ethically sound manufacturers was a natural choice.”

With many thousands of wearers, the roll out of new uniform is a gradual process, but all wearers will have a new Balfour Beatty Workplace uniform by the end of the year, with older uniforms being recycled though a specialist agent.

Balfour Beatty is a world-class engineering, construction, services and investment business, well-positioned in infrastructure markets which offer significant long-term growth. We work in partnership with sophisticated customers who value the highest levels of quality, safety and technical expertise. Our skills are applied in appropriate combinations to meet individual customer need.

Incorporatewear is a major supplier of inspirational corporate clothing, workwear and uniform solutions supplied as bespoke wardrobes or via the company's new on-line sourcing system, with some clients using both offers to create their ideal working clothing solution.
