Three top awards for local firm Hunter Apparel

Londonderry firm Hunter Apparel has won three UK industry awards.

Designers and suppliers of corporate work-wear and PPE uniform. The Professional Clothing Awards was held in Birmingham on Tuesday and saw the company pick up the accolades of ‘bust business manager’, ‘best managed major contract’ and ‘best bespoke uniform design’ from the CEO of the Association, John Miln. It was the first time that one company won the top award in all three categories.

The ‘business manager’ award is jointly shared between Hunter Apparel and their client UK Border Force, and is awarded for excellence in delivering a major contract between the public and private sector.

Hunter Apparel was nominated by UK Border Force for their outstanding performance in the roll out of a completely new work-wear design for all 11,000 Border Force and Immigration Enforcement staff across 117 sites in the UK, wide using Hunter’s unique web based managed service known as ‘HunterPac’. Hunter Apparel supplied over 250,000 items to UKBF in record time to a hugely positive response from the wearers and saved UKBF a substantial sum of money while driving the quality of both product and service upwards.

Hunter Apparel director Simon Hunter, said; “We are absolutely delighted to have the hard work of our staff recognised.

We can compete against and beat the largest players within this industry and our ultimate goal is to receive recognition as being the No.1 UK company in delivering value through technology based solutions within our sector. We are now well on our way to achieving our goal.”
