Prompt, Personal & Professional: Kontroltek Staff Uniform 2017

Office Wear

  • Background

    Kontroltek is based in Bridgend, South Wales, and specialise in Industrial Electronic Repair and Supply. Their target market is the manufacturing sector, ranging from small precision engineering companies to large corporations. Kontroltek was founded in 2011, with a philosophy of providing cost-effective, top quality electronic repair solutions for businesses through all industry sectors. This philosophy remains engrained at the heart of the company, who, since start-up, have expanded UK wide and are now establishing themselves in Europe. They currently have two UK branches: their headquarters in Bridgend, South Wales, alongside a branch in the West Midlands.

  • Challenge

    Due to the rapid growth of the business, it has been vital in 2017 for them to review the business’ entire marketing mix, and an overhaul of staff uniform was definitely needed. In the past, Kontroltek have used a large and sporadic multitude of uniform suppliers, alongside a separate company for printing and embroidery needs. They needed a cost-effective solution to this so that all members of staff were supplied with excellent quality uniform, with one collaborative supplier.

    They wanted to achieve up-to-date, professional uniforms for all staff members that also showcased a clean and proficient brand image. Their main constraint was budget, along with finding a style that made every member of staff feel comfortable and confident.

  • Solution

    Kontroltek found Corprotex online and made an enquiry after deciding that they were personable, friendly and cost-effective, whilst remaining professional and stocking high quality items. “The staff at Corprotex made the process seamlessly easy; they were extremely responsive and attentive to all Kontroltek’s requirements. Steve, the dedicated Account Manager, was approachable and extremely knowledgeable. He listened carefully to our requests, and made excellent recommendations. They sent samples whenever we needed them and made the process simple to follow. They had a creative flair that other companies we had tried didn’t possess – they fulfilled our requests and made every effort to go the extra mile, too.”

    Working alongside Steve, Kontroltek came to a decision of a combination of purple and black Brook Taverner blouses for the women in the office, which were embroidered with the Kontroltek logo. They also had lilac and black shirts with an embroidered logo for the men.

  • Results

    Kontroltek were extremely satisfied, and we were even able to create individual uniform packages for them, which made distribution to staff easy. The staff were completely impressed: before now they had received just basic black shirts, and this new uniform and style allowed office staff to retain an inherent sense of individuality whilst conforming to a professional and consistent brand image. They have also received several compliments from customers, and saved a significant amount of money, too. For them, Corprotex proved that excellent quality doesn’t have to cost the earth!

“Our expectation was not only met, but astronomically surpassed. We’ve had our new uniforms for a few months now and the quality of them is fantastic. We won’t hesitate to utilise Corprotex’s services again and hope to work with them for all of our uniform needs for the future.”
