The Uniform Buyers’ Network is a dedicated group for procurers of professional clothing, including uniforms, workwear and personal protective equipment (PPE).

Led by experienced buyers in the professional clothing industry, the working group is designed to educate on best practice approaches, provide insights related to the tender process, managing contracts, sourcing relevant suppliers and awareness of new and relevant fabric, garment, and digital technologies.

The UK Manufacturers working group will represent the challenges and opportunities for companies manufacturing products in the textile and apparel supply chains.

Organised by established manufacturers of fabrics and professional clothing, the working group is designed to understand the UK’s manufacturing capacity to be able to represent its potential to collaboratively deliver on domestic public and private sector contracts and promote the benefits of onshore sourcing.
