Bristol Uniforms officially opens Yate factory
The mayor of Yate has cut the ribbon at the official opening of Bristol Uniforms’ new Central Cutting Unit in Waverley Road.
The company, a designer and manufacturer of protective clothing and equipment for firefighters across the globe, has taken on additional premises to handle planning and fabric cutting, as well as storage of fabric stocks and finished goods.
Mayor John Ford was invited to officially open the unit, which is phase one of the new 40,000 sq. ft. facility, and was given a tour which included a demonstration of the new automatic cutting machines and meeting with the 30 employees working there.
Mr Ford said: “It’s heartening to see a local manufacturing company performing so well on the global stage and continuing to lead the way in its field. The new facility here is very impressive, and has paved the way for the creation of several new jobs.”
