Complete New Range of Workwear, PPE and Footwear

HunterONE® created a complete new design of work wear, footwear and PPE for An Post dramatically transforming the look of the organisation, saving the organisation substantial money and utilising our HunterPAC® system to evolve the managed service. Hunter sent our highly trained sizing teams to every An Post location to fit 6000 staff. Hunter went on to win Best Workwear Design Award – Highly Commended.

We are thrilled that our creative designs have been selected by An Post and that this has led us to winning this highly prestigious award.

UK Manufacturing
Sizing Through Artificial Intelligence Technology

First Group’s new train and travel service, Lumo, has set out to transform the UK Rail sector. Lumo sought a partner that could design, source, and produce a sustainable uniform that would minimise the company’s carbon footprint. The uniform design had to be distinctly different, standing out from previous rail uniforms to reflect the company’s challenger status and ambitions to reimagine rail travel.

Lumo selected Hunter for being the most advanced supplier from a technology perspective, as well as for Hunter’s stronger grasp of gender-neutral design.

Hunter used Artificial Intelligence Sizing technology to gather sizing requirements, eliminating the need to provide expensive and carbon-heavy sizing sets. Hunter was able to further reduce the carbon footprint by manufacturing in their UK factory using the latest in design and garment manufacturing capabilities.

“I was tired of seeing a militaristic, gender-based approach to uniform. Hunter understood that we needed something different, something that reflected Lumo’s ethos and values, which was gender-neutral and much more modern in look and feel. Supporting the UK industry was important to us as well as producing high-quality, ethically sourced goods, as sustainably as possible. Hunter was an easy choice.”
