Following a record year, Workwear Express has officially opened the doors to a new, fully fitted customer showroom and outlet at its County Durham headquarters.
The leading supplier of personalised workwear, uniform and promotional clothing will display its best-selling items, from a range of 10,000+ products, to customers visiting the site at Belmont Industrial Estate.
The opening of Workwear Express’ first showroom and outlet comes as the company is celebrating its highest turnover to date with sales of £18m in the past year – a 20% rise on the previous year.
The company has spent £150,000 to refit the new showroom and outlet store – part of a multi-million pound overhaul of the entire site, which has seen the recent addition of a 40,000 square foot factory and new machinery, including two outstanding new high volume garment printers with HD technology.
Workwear Express’ fully trained sales staff will be on hand at the showroom and outlet store to help with any customer requirements. Building on the company’s reputation for bespoke branded products with a fast delivery time, customised orders placed in store, will be ready to collect the following day and the entire upper floor is full of quality Workwear at heavily discounted prices.
Andrew Ward, Managing Director of Workwear Express, said: “We are delighted to welcome customers to our specially-designed new showroom and outlet store. It is a great opportunity for businesses in the region to have this facility on their doorstep, with access to a wide variety of our products, high quality, customised options and a fast, efficient turnaround.”
The opening of the new showroom and outlet comes at an exciting time for Workwear Express as it plans to roll out stores to other major cities around the UK. It employs 200+ staff in the North East and has already welcomed 30 new members of the team on board this year, thanks to continued demand for its products.
Andrew continued: “We are a company proud of our North East roots and where we’ve grown from, and we have exciting expansion plans for the future. We’ve been selling workwear for nearly 30 years and recognise the value of a personalised service and enjoyable customer experience. That’s why we’re thrilled to launch our new store in the region, which fully compliments our digital offer and marks the start of a new chapter for the company.
“Our friendly and knowledgeable team will be on hand at the new showroom & outlet store to meet and greet customers and deliver an exceptional service, every time.
“We’re proud to work with businesses of all shapes and sizes, across a wide range of sectors – catering, hospitality, transport, construction, charities, events – to name just a few. We’re encouraging businesses in need of any workwear solutions to stop by and see us to find out how we can help.”
The full-service company has more than 200,000 active customers across its three divisions – e-commerce, key accounts and international. It offers services including embroidery, print and transfer all under one roof.
The new showroom is now open at Workwear Express, Belmont Industrial Estate, DH1 1TF 8am to 6pm Monday to Friday and 9am to 1pm Saturday.
