When you run a business, there are so many things to keep on top of and under control. No matter the scale of your operation, a simple administration of your business can be a sinkhole for time and resources better spent elsewhere. Some of it is essential, some of it can be left in the hands of specialists. And at Giltbrook Workwear, we can handle every single aspect of your workwear responsibilities.
We work with people in many different sectors and over 70 years of business have been able to craft our efficient, high-quality service to be consistent across multiple industries. We work with automotive businesses and provide their staff with the workwear they need.
We offer a range of bespoke garments for you to buy or rent. From coats to coveralls, trouser bottoms to polo shirts, we have a wide range for you to choose from. Our garments are suitable for a wide variety of roles, from technicians to mechanics, and they are all durable, comfortable, and flexible for their wearers. You will notice from the example garments below that our workwear has utility pockets to help with convenience, has enforced support in areas such as the knees and is manufactured using breathable fabrics for increased comfort all year round. Our workwear aims are to provide durable garments that maintain their condition for long periods, even during commercial laundry processes; to provide the wearer with the comfort and flexibility they need; and to provide the support and protection to safeguard your staff. We only supply the best tried and tested garments so you can guarantee quality from us.
Image is as crucial as comfort when it comes to workwear. You can also personalise your workwear so that they match your brand colours or feature your logo prominently on the workwear. We offer embroidery and heat seal badging services so you can showcase your brand on your uniforms.
With our workwear rental service, all uniform management is in our hands. If you’ve got a new hire who needs a uniform, or someone needs repairs to a garment, we’ll get it covered for you. We’ll also make sure that each member of your team is provided with workwear that fits well, as this is very important to their safety. All of our workwear will meet the safety standards that you need to satisfy. The safety of your team is paramount and with Giltbrook Workwear, you can guarantee that your staff are provided with clean and safe uniforms.
A major part of our workwear rental service is laundering your uniform to the highest standard. Here are the different stages of our laundry process:
Part of making our laundry process as organised as possible in line with our ISO9001 Quality Management System is that we track all workwear with the use of chip transponders or sometimes known as RFID along with barcode technology. Workwear can be scanned at point of receipt by us at the laundry, post wash, repair and quality check stage. This guarantees we can track the whereabouts of all items from a technician paint sprayer coverall being sent in to being returned, recording the number of washes to alterations carried out on a specific item. Giving you confidence the workwear you send in for cleaning is being tracked all the way through the wash cycle back to you. Reporting information is available through the Giltbrook hub.
Our wash cycle is extremely thorough made up of a number of different stages, each stage has been designed to ensure your workwear item is correctly laundered to remove the Oil, grease and chemicals that can be difficult to remove but with our expert knowledge and experience, along with our innovative facility, we’ll ensure your uniforms are cleaned thoroughly
The “Sapphire Wash control systems” allows our staff to closely monitor the wash processes in real time, measuring key indicators - dip levels in the wash, temperature, and detergent dosing through our proof of delivery system. Information is stored in the cloud to offer easily accessible wash information to allow for positive release of batches.
We work closely with our detergent and equipment partners to monitor and develop new wash programs for your uniforms. Keeping all factors under control allows us to achieve our excellent results.
Using temperature control and thermal disinfection, our drying tunnel ensures your clothes are presented back to your staff with a smart, crease free appearance ready for their next shift
At this stage, we quality check your uniforms. There’s no room for complacency in our laundry process as our workwear is across disciplines. Your automotive workwear will receive the same treatment as our pharmaceutical workwear where disinfection is absolutely essential.
Our laundry folder then presents your workwear in a neat and tidy fashion, ready for us to deliver back to you.
As you can see, our laundry process is extremely thorough and it needs to be, for the range of clients that we work with. From pharmaceutical companies to the automotive industry to chef’s uniforms, we do it all and provide the same high standards of cleanliness throughout.
We also provide locker services to our customers should they need them, with optional garment collection and laundry services. Our stove-enamelled lockers come in a range of colours and banks of 5, 10 and 15 and are available as both garment and personal lockers.
Our lockers are provided with the option of combination locks, useful for when keys aren’t considered the best option in the workplace. We will possess a master key for the purposes of speedy and efficient loading and unloading if you choose our laundry services. Our laundry collectors are designed for the wearer to post soiled garments into a secure location as they leave the changing area. Our route representative on the collection of workwear will open secure collector and empty workwear to be returned to the laundry for cleaning.
Protecting your staff is one of your biggest responsibilities and if you need to provide workwear that you know you can rely on, then get in touch with us today at Giltbrook Workwear.
