Supplying construction workwear at a national level for Mitie Painting and Fabric

At Lamberts we work with a variety of construction clients, both nearby in Norfolk or across the whole of the UK. One business relationship we have that spans both is with our client Mitie Painting and Fabric – a division of the facilities management and professional services company Mitie – which has a branch on Mason Road in Norwich.

How Lamberts works with Mitie Painting and Fabric

Lamberts has been working with Mitie Painting and Fabric for over seven years, since Martin Siggery, Quality, Health, Safety and Environment (QHSE) Advisor at Norwich – who joined the firm over 16 years ago as a painter and decorator – first approached Lamberts in 2015 to use our embroidery service for the company’s polo shirts.

When Martin was promoted a few years later to National Health and Safety Manager of Mitie Painting and Fabric, he oversaw all national offices within this division. Martin was so pleased with the service Lamberts offered to the division locally, he asked if Lamberts would be able to service the division on a national scale.

Workwear Specialist at Lamberts, Tom Collin, explains, “When Martin asked if we could support his division on a national level, we were more than happy to help. We designed a bespoke product catalogue that included products specifically relevant to employees within the Painting and Fabric division, including clothing and safety equipment.

“This was then circulated to the branches around the country, so they could send their orders independently and directly to us. We have a great working relationship with Mitie Painting and Fabric and can consistently service its branches including Middlesbrough, London, Cannock and Bristol as well as right here in Norwich.

“In addition to the polo shirts, sweatshirts, and hoodies that we supply as uniform, we now also distribute PPE items such helmets, glasses, gloves, hi-vis and safety boots across the division”
