10 SME NEWS / Welsh Enterprise Awards 2018 Based in Port Talbot, First Corporate Clothing is a professional and friendly corporate clothing and workwear provider, where service and quality are key principles. Having recently recognised the firm in this years’ Welsh Enterprise Awards, we profile the firm to gain an insight into the products it offers and how it came to win an award in this prestigious programme. Best Corporate Uniforms Manufacturer - UK Established in 1998, First Corporate Clothing came from humble beginnings, with the firm originally operating from the front room of Director Mal Davies’ home in Cardiff, where, along with his wife Shirley he sold to local companies such as estate agents and solicitors in the Cardiff area. The production at this time was supplied by a factory based in Merthyr who were also making garments for a number of High Street outlets. Over the following years the demand for uniforms grew, and since then the firm has flourished. Today, First Corporate Clothing offers a vast range of stock supported garments which are available for immediate purchase. Additionally, the firm also have the ability to design bespoke uniforms and take it from a vision to manufacture right here in the UK, with minimum order quantities being as low as 50 pieces per style. Domestic production is a key focus for the firm, and First Corporate Clothing focuses on its Made in Britain ethos and encourage customers to buy British. Its dedicated team are committed to maintaining a sustainable supply chain which is made up of quality suppliers, fabrics and components. Where possible the firm use other UK manufacturers and UK fabric makers as this is vitally important to both the team and their customers. It is this focus on British manufacturing that sets First Corporate Clothing apart from its competitors. The UK and the South Wales area has a long-standing history in garment manufacturing, so the firm believe it is of vital importance that they continue to support UK manufacturing particularly on a local level to ensure that this legacy is not only maintained but to develop a skill base for future generations. Thanks to this commitment, the firm has set up a unique training opportunity for those that wish to learn about garment manufacturing and to learn the skills necessary to become a factory machinist. Going forward, First Corporate Clothing will continue championing the UK manufacture of corporate wear and to continue to run and grow its training line to support an even wider range of clients and showcase the quality that British manufacturers have to offer.
