Simon Jersey awarded by beauty industry

Accrington-based uniform supplier, Simon Jersey, has been named as the winner of a major industry award.

The company has been named as Best Uniform Supplier to the beauty industry in the Guild Awards. The annual awards are organised by the Guild of Beauty Therapists and the only ones voted for by those working in the industry.

This announcement follows an extensive period of research by Simon Jersey with its beauty customers. It worked with a UK-wide panel to better understand what they needed from their uniforms as well as customer service and communication. Their feedback led directly to some of the company’s latest garments including a jumpsuit which features in the newly launched catalogue.

Winning the award marks the start of an exciting six months for Simon Jersey during which it will celebrate its 45th anniversary as well as kitting out all of the Team GB athletes and officials travelling to the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. As an official supplier to Team GB, Simon Jersey will provide suiting for formal events as well as the outfit they will wear at the closing ceremony.

James Saunders, managing director, said: “We’re absolutely thrilled to have won this award. It’s a fantastic recognition from our customers of the design and quality of our beauty uniforms as well as the service we offer.

“We’ve worked hard over the last year to understand the needs of our beauty customers and involve them in what we do. We believe that by listening to beauty professionals in this way we’re an even better business.

“Thank you to all of our customers who voted for us, we couldn’t be happier that you have made us this year’s Best Uniform Supplier. This year was already shaping up to be one of our best yet and this award really puts the cherry on the cake!”
