ISS is one of the world's leading facilities management companies with over half a million employees. We began work with them in 2015, designing a range of nearly 100 garments that could be rolled out across the globe. With job roles varying from front-of-house, cleaner, to technical services and groundskeepers, it was an extremely complex project for our design team. We needed to create a range that unified everyone as one team and looked good on workers of all shapes and sizes, across the varied disciplines.
Our design inspiration came from the ISS ellipse on the logo, which is carried through every garment. We worked closely with the ISS Head Office team in Copenhagen, consulting with them on preferred fabrics and styles, and organising wearer trials across Europe. Once complete, the uniform was unveiled to staff at a manager’s conference in Paris which was also screened live to staff at ISS locations around the world. We currently manufacture and supply the range to 19 nations in Europe, and more recently we have also won the contract to supply the ISS teams in North and South America.
