From starting out as hat-lining manufacturer in 1922 to the launch of our new website this month, we’re more than happy to be continually growing as a business.
Our latest development – our new website – is a great reflection of how far we’ve come over the years and what we now offer as a modern supplier of healthcare clothing and workwear to customers across the UK – from the Orkneys down to the Scilly Isles.
The new website offers a range of functionality to make ordering new uniforms and workwear as easy as possible:
- A new interface designed to make shopping much easier
- New pages adding to an already diverse range of products
- The ability to easily shop by some of your favourite brands
- Functionality to add to embroidery to your uniform or workwear as you shop
The secret to our success
We’re really excited about the new website. It really encapsulates what we offer and how we’ve moved with the times. It’s helped us reflect on what’s made us a success:
We’ve been able to diversify over the years
We offer something for everyone
We believe we have a scrub suit, medical uniform or workwear outfit to suit all types of business and budget. Our product range is second to none.
As expectations around healthcare uniforms have changed, so have we
In many ways the change has been influenced by the popularity of medical TV and film dramas such as ER and Casualty. Patients certainly have higher expectations about how health practitioners should look and be dressed, while professionals themselves are now looking beyond traditional cuts, styles and colours.
We understand the importance of uniforms and workwear to your brand
Things have certainly changed dramatically in the way health professionals and practices now present themselves. Particularly in dentistry, where the use of colour within practices, together with relaxing pictures and even ambient music, all make a trip to the dentist a little less daunting for the patient. The increasing use of good looking scrub suit uniforms has also helped enhance the image of the profession by giving its people a professional persona. At the same time, staff are now able to wear comfortable easy care clothing that doesn’t look too institutional and comes in a wide variety of colours and styles.
Furthermore, here at AWB Textiles we offer an in-house embroidery service that allows you to include your corporate logo, staff names and positions prominently on your uniforms and workwear. Embroidery is a simple, cost effective way of ensuring that your brand remains in the minds of all who see it.
We’ve embraced new clothing fabrics
New from Dickies USA is the Xtreme Stretch range of women’s uniforms that come in ten attractive colours with two styles of top and an elastic waist and boot-cut style trousers. These are produced in an innovative synthetic fabric containing rayon and spandex that stretches four ways and ensures maximum comfort. It has the added advantage of requiring little or no ironing after washing.
We hope you’re going to enjoy our new website too. We’d love to hear your feedback, particularly via Facebook. Or feel free to drop us a line if you’d prefer.
