Cooneen Group, based in Northern Ireland design, manufacture and supply essential garments to key workers across the globe.
This week they really stepped into the limelight with their Transport for London uniform appearing on the front cover of the July edition of Vogue magazine. This is part of a focus by Vogue magazine on key workers and the massive contribution they have made throughout the Covid-19 pandemic. One key worker, Narguis Horsford, who is a train driver is featured proudly wearing her Arriva Rail London uniform, which is manufactured and supplied by the Cooneen Group. This is just part of the ongoing supply of many thousands of uniform and protective products that Cooneen has continued to deliver to key workers across the UK throughout the pandemic, as a designated essential provider to front-line services.
The Group are proud of the effort and commitment of their staff across the business who have continued to work through the Covid-19 crisis. This was achieved due to the introduction of strict new protocols across all Cooneen locations including temperature recognition prior to entry, introduction of hand sanitisation, social distancing measures, and wearing of protective gloves, face coverings and coveralls while on each site. The Group has also been active in supporting their communities by manufacturing face coverings and distributing these to local groups and assisting the national volunteer networks created to produce scrubs for the NHS! As we now begin to move out of lockdown Cooneen are actively targeting new markets and opportunities, having had recent success in winning business in France, New Zealand, Singapore and Scandinavia.
