Six By Six: Helping The Frontline With Uniforms & Equipment

PRESENTED: July 29, 2021
Sponsored by the North American Association of Uniform Manufacturers and Distributors (NAUMD)

A webinar presentation featuring five experts in the public-safety, hospitality and healthcare areas of the uniform industry. These leaders represent five different companies who outfit millions of workers all across North America.

We asked the panelists to discuss the challenges they and their companies faced in recent times, the lessons they learned and how they plan to adjust their uniform manufacturing, fabric purchasing, cleaning operations, retail experiences, customer service and more moving forward.

How might the production and purchasing of uniforms for first responders, healthcare professionals, hospitality employees, transportation workers and other frontline workers change?

How might manufacturing, design, and retail accommodate PPE clothing as a second or third layer?

How might the cleaning of uniforms and dress codes for wearing uniforms outside work change?

Six panelists, six companies, six minute talks.
All speakers represent uniform manufacturers, distributors, dealers and retailers.
