When the team at Tong Garden Centre wanted new workwear for their plants, catering and Grass Hoppers teams, they 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."

Ms Burton is delighted that the team at Tong are happy with their new workwear: "The psychology associated with wearing a uniform is so important and it was great to work with the team to create something that they felt comfortable in.

"We pride ourselves on building strong relationships with our customers, allowing us to better understand their needs regarding brand, safety and image. We're not just about order processing but have a wealth of knowledge and expertise in the industry to allow us to help find solutions and give advice where applicable."
