Shield360 is an award-winning garment brokering and PPE solutions business, changing the shape of the industry through its focus on quality, innovation and sustainability.
During 2020, as part of its response to the Covid-19 pandemic, Shield360 worked together with a number of UK factories to supply reusable healthcare garments into the NHS. Seahawk was one of the first factories to be onboarded for this project.
As a specialist manufacturer of protective workwear and professional safety clothing, Seahawk was ideally placed to support the contract – providing a fast response with clear and regular communication.
Natalie Wilson, managing director at Shield360, said: “Seahawk was flexible in helping us meet specific requirements such as packing by scrub set rather than by garment; providing the delivery paperwork required by the client, and ensuring weekly deliveries of requested sizes so that goods were available as soon as possible.”
Shield360 coordinated regular deliveries of fabrics into the Seahawk warehouse to ensure that the agreed production schedule was maintained throughout the 18-week plan. By working closely together, Shield360 was able to plan regular deliveries to its client from week one. With weekly garment updates being provided, and deliveries booked in advance, the team ensured a smooth-running operation.
From its UK manufacturing facility in Fife, Seahawk manufactured almost 8000 garments for this project – maintaining consistently good quality and regular communication throughout.
Natalie added: “The Seahawk team was flexible and able to meet all of the demanding requirements for this project to ensure the successful on-time delivery each week, achieving the quality and quantity needed every time. I would have no hesitation in recommending Seahawk, and continue to actively look for more production projects for this excellent UK manufacturing facility.”
