Ballyclare awarded new protective workwear contract by Network Rail
Ballyclare Limited has been awarded a new order for protective workwear by Network Rail that covers the supply of hi‐vis polycotton workwear, following a detailed and rigorous tendering process.
Ballyclare is accredited under the Rail Industry Supplier Qualification Scheme (RISQS), and its range of polycotton workwear meets Network Rail’s thorough specifications.
Ballyclare has been providing Network Rail with a wide range of waterproof foul‐weather garments, many of which feature GORE-TEX® Fabrics for reliable protection. The company also supplies Network Rail with flame‐retardant and arc‐protection clothing for more demanding applications.
Ballyclare was delighted to receive the news of its latest success, as Managing Director, Carlton Greener explains: “This is excellent news for us. It underlines the quality of the clothing we are already supplying to Network Rail, and also of the polycotton workwear which is covered by the new contract.”
“Our hi‐vis polycotton range has recently been redesigned to provide improved fit with ladies’ option, better performance and greater value for money. It includes various garments such as jackets, cargo trousers and coveralls, and like all the clothing that Ballyclare supplies to Network Rail, these are in a high visibility orange which is fully compliant with the recently introduced RIS‐3279‐TOM standard.”
During the tender process, Ballyclare was carefully assessed in relation to different areas, including garment design and quality, technical details and commercial performance, while both laundry and wearer trials were also completed successfully. Ballyclare was able to satisfy these and many other requirements, and clearly demonstrated the exceptional understanding and ability to provide quality products that were essential to a successful outcome.
