Tong Garden Centre keeps it local for new uniform

by | Nov 11, 2020 | News | 0 comments

A Bradford garden centre has reinforced its ethos of supporting local businesses wherever possible by sourcing its new uniform from a fellow West Yorkshire business.

When the team at Tong Garden Centre wanted new workwear for its plants, catering and Grass Hoppers teams, it turned to Atlantic PPE and Workwear Solutions.

The Wakefield based business was able to supply almost 1000 items of branded indoor and outdoor workwear from jackets and hoodies to embroidered blouses, aprons and chef’s whites for the team in Tong’s restaurants, including the new table service restaurant, The Mezzanine.

The new uniform was commissioned by Tong’s indoor manager, Dennis Keen: “We were looking for a local company who could supply a wide range of fit for purpose, good quality workwear and Atlantic fitted the bill perfectly, with great value clothing and exceptional service.”

“Atlantic’s MD, Clare Burton is experienced in branding, has a great eye for design and prides herself in providing workwear that the team are proud to wear. This was a big project, and it was delivered in full and on time, so we’re very pleased.”
