Gloucester based SAFPRO will supply the staff working in over 200 Speedy branches around the country with their branded clothing and PPE. In addition, SAFPRO will supply workwear, safety footwear and PPE that Speedy can sell through their retail outlets. The anticipated value of the deal is over £1 million, over a two-year period.
Delivering on objectives
“The team at Safpro are delighted to have won this contract and we are proud to be associated with a company like Speedy, who are at the top of their game,” said Roy Jones, Sales Director at SAFPRO.
“Speedy were looking for a workwear and PPE supplier that would help them achieve their goal of consolidating supply and reducing costs, whilst at the same time improving product quality and account management. Safpro has been able to offer a solution that achieves all these objectives. This partnership will ensure that Speedy employees enjoy the best level of protection in terms of health and safety, as well as promoting a strong, consistent brand.”
Workwear for tough environments
The robust corporate workwear and PPE supplied by SAFPRO will offer protective clothing for Speedy employees, who work in a variety of environments where safety is paramount, such as construction sites, workshops and railways. From ear defenders to flame retardant clothing, SAFPRO has extensive resources for equipping workers in these kinds of industrial settings.
Jones added: “We identified Speedy some time ago as a company we were compatible with, so this is a brand we have long considered to have the potential for a great partnership. To have signed this deal is therefore very satisfying and we are looking forward to working with Speedy, as their preferred supplier.
