At Alsico we recognise the importance of quality workwear and since our conception in 1934 we have become the largest purchaser of workwear fabrics in Europe. We supply workwear to keep employees safe and protect wearers from hazards around the world. As we have such a wide reach we are aware of our environmental impact and strive to keep this to a minimum to recycle and reduce waste wherever possible. This is an integral part of our business as we are aware that because we dispatch over 18 million garments a year our business can have a negative impact on the environment.
We are passionate about our industry and pour that passion into our product range. So we were honoured to be recognised within our industry and awarded two awards from the Professional Clothing Industry Association Worldwide (PCIAW) in November 2021. The PCIAW are a community of members within the workwear, corporatewear and PPE industry who communicate with one another to create new opportunities and establish new relationships for their businesses. Our Managing Director David Toon won the ‘Lifetime Achievement’ award and the ‘Best Newcomer’ award went to our General Manager Greg Houlston. These awards are highly recognised in the clothing industry and are said to ‘recognise innovative individuals and businesses that are breaking boundaries in the professional clothing industry.’ (PCIAW).
Customer experiences allow us to adapt our garments to suit the needs of specific professions which include but are not limited to welders, construction workers, doctors, nurses, electricians and chefs so we encourage customers to leave reviews and reach out to us with feedback to ensure that our workwear is comfortable as well as efficient. Our passion for the industry is reflected in our customer feedback, to ensure that we provide the best quality clothing for our catered professions.
