Manufacture & Engineering Workwear

The Client

A global leader in specialist engineering and manufacturing, with operations in Ireland.

The Problem

This Service Matters customer needed a workwear solution for their extensive manufacturing and engineering teams.

With over 500 wearers across multiple locations, the client had no comprehensive uniform solution for their business. Garments in use were all of different specifications and quality.

Our Process

As exclusive partners in Ireland for Engel Workwear, we worked closely with the Engel brand to tailor a uniquely designed and branded garment range to reflect both the PPE needs of the customer, as well as promoting their corporate branding across all wearers on the site. Collaborating with the customer, our process was as follows:

  • We carried out a site audit to advise on what the best garments are for their needs. 
  • Wearer trials were carried out on the garments before fully agreeing on the specification.
  • We then agreed on the specification, design and garment appearance for the whole operations.
  • These were then all manufactured to our strict standards ready for supply.


The Solution

With over 500 wearers across multiple zones on site, we delivered a garment solution to suit every individual wearer. The agreed garment solution is the Engel Light trousers, jacket and polo shirt. This is a two-colour workwear in 250g/m2 lightweight quality adapted for indoor temperatures. Oeko-Tex® certified with practical details such as mobile phone, knee and thigh pockets.

Our full garment management service includes weekly laundering and garment quality inspection to ensure the integrity of the garments are maintained throughout their life cycle. As part of the weekly laundering package, Service Matters provide a collection and locker fill delivery service, whereby the fresh garments are placed in every person’s individual lockers each week.
