Fashion – Enter Ltd Wins Transport for Wales Contract


On 30th November, Fashion-Enter Ltd CEO Jenny Holloway attended a meeting with Andrea Wayman, CEO of Elite Clothing Solutions, representatives from Transport for Wales, and senior MP’s including Vaughan Gething, Minister for the Economy and Member of the Welsh Parliament for Cardiff South and Penarth.

The meeting discussed manufacturing contracts for Transport for Wales uniforms and the emphasis was on keeping production local and amongst social enterprises that supports local workers and their communities.

Elite Clothing Solutions based in Ebbw Vale is a social enterprise that offers bespoke garments to customers across Wales, where quality and customer care are key principles. Appointed by the Welsh Government’s ‘Better Jobs Closer to Home’ strategy, the company aims to provide meaningful employment, supporting those with aspirations to enter, remain and progress in employment.

The meeting concluded that a unique collaboration of four social enterprises will manufacture the new uniforms. For Fashion-Enter Ltd this will centre on the design and creation of the maternity and menopause ranges that will incorporate Kornit Digital printing technology and kind pigment inks.

Jenny Holloway commented: “Fashion-Enter Ltd is absolutely delighted to wave that Made in Wales flag! A big thank-you to Andrea Wayman, who was an absolute ambassador for the programme! 

“Let’s hope that this is the start of many more initiatives to keep manufacturing jobs in the UK.”
