Stamp of approval for clothes firm in uniform deal

Published 05/01/2011

A CLOTHING company in Londonderry is celebrating after landing a €2m (£1.7m) contract to supply Irish postmen and women with new uniforms.

Hunter Apparel Solutions in Springtown has provided waterproof jackets, shorts and trousers to 6,000 An Post staff.

The company was established in 1936 and now has 40 staff.

Simon Hunter, the managing director of Hunter Apparel, said it had been "a very prestigious contract win" for the company.

"Our designs and garments have been extremely well received," he said.

"This range of garments has provided An Post with a superb new look, much more fit for purpose and contemporary looking," he said.

The firm recently also won a £2.5m contract to provide uniforms for 47,000 staff at Health and Social Care Northern Ireland for five years.

It also supplies uniforms to ambulance service paramedics and officers on both sides of the border, as well as the uniform for the Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service and most of the fire departments in the Republic.

The firm is also developing a product which monitors hand hygiene activity in hospitals.
