15 December 2011 – Dunfermline Building Society testimonial to Stedman Corporate Clothing
Vicky Bywaters, regional distribution support manager, Nationwide Building Society said “When our previous clothing supplier went into administration, we were half way through a roll-out of new staff uniforms for our Dunfermline Building Society business and so it left us in a difficult position. We were recommended to Stedman Corporate Clothing who were not only able to deliver a bespoke uniform to match our original requirements, but provided an extremely quick turnaround for us. The full service they have provided – from design, production to managing stock and garment replenishment – has been very good. They really have made our jobs very easy.”
Stedman Corporate Clothing’s team of specialists were quick to respond and as a result worked closely with the Building Society to source the fabrics to match the original order and to then commence with the bespoke manufacturers of the garments.
The order included female sales advisers uniforms in charcoal wool-rich tailoring with cerise bespoke blouses. In addition, a stock range of uniform was also sourced for the Managers, which would provide a width of product choice, yet not have a minimum stock requirement, which would suit the fact that a lower number of uniforms were required for this level of staff.
Adds Vicky; “Their detailed reporting of stock levels, financial reports and general administrative support related was an advantage and made my job easier too.”
Stedman Corporate Clothing’s nominated charity is the Nyumbani Orphanage in Kenya, and as part of the project Dunfermline Building Society was pleased to be able to support this, as Vicky confirms; “As part of the roll-out of the new uniforms, we agreed that all old stock could be donated to the Nyumbani Orphanage for use in its Polytechnic college as part of the textiles classes. It was great to support the charity in this way and we were pleased that the team at Stedman Corporate Clothing organised this on our behalf.”
Vicky concludes, “I would have no hesitation in recommending Stedman Corporate Clothing and would be very happy to work with them again in future.”
