Parkex gives Keltic’s New Security Workwear a Thumbs up!

Parkex, the British Parking Association‘s flagship event is an important date in the Keltic calendar. This year was a tremendous success. Our new security workwear was an absolute hit! Thrilled with this, we thought we’d tell you a little bit about the day.

Keltic’s New Security Workwear

 

Well, we weren’t sure how the berets would go down, but it turns out they were a surprise hit! The new customer-friendly uniforms we have developed with NSL’s uniform working group, which will soon be hitting the streets on NSL’s Westminster contract, got a resounding thumbs up this week at Parkex. We debuted our stylish new high performance Ambassador jacket, our water-resistant next generation jumper/fleece replacement the Patrol Softshell, the technical moisture-wicking Patrol Shirt, and the hybrid combat/smart Patrol Trouser. I think it is safe to say that we have never had such a positive reaction at Parkex – not even for our pink parking people (who did put in another appearance this year, armed with candyfloss and gingerbread CEOs). There was even a qeue to get a closer look at the garments at one point!

The Next Phase in Parking Uniforms

 

All of our new security workwear uses advanced, technical fabrics, meaning that it is highly breathable and quick drying. It also means that by layering these garments up, you can also achieve excellent warmth without the usual bulk that is needed by less technical more old-fashioned fabrics. “It’s the same idea as ski-ing and snowboarding garments” says Keltic Director David Barry, “the layering of technical fabrics gives great movement and flexibility, but still keeps the wearer warm and comfortable. This is the next phase in parking uniforms. Garments designed by CEOs, for CEOs, giving them the comfort and movement they are used to from their own personal clothes, to work.”

The garments displayed will be available from the end of July. If you’d like a sample or any further information, please call our Parking Department on 08450 66 66 99. Or you can make an online enquiry here.

Come & See the Future of Parking Workwear at Stand E40

We are all set up at Parkex, and look forward to welcoming our lovely customers to our stand today! We will have Gingerbread CEOs, candyfloss, fairground amusements, and more importantly we will be asking your opinion on the future of parking workwear – a full range of garments which we have designed in conjunction with NSL’s uniform working group. They will shortly be worn by the UK’s largest parking operation, NSL’s City of Westminster contract.

Our Brand New Parking Workwear

 

The Ambassador jacket is a new lightweight jacket based on a snowboarding garment, with a stylish modern cut which gives excellent movement and comfort. The Patrol Softshell is the next-generation mid-layer garment – a big move-on from the Nato Jumper of old we think you’ll agree! The Patrol Shirt is a re-imagination of the traditional pilot shirt, taking inspiration from the sportswear market, and in particular, golf shirts and football shirts.

parking workwearAnd with the Patrol Trouser, like with all these garments, rather than thinking “what is out there already that we can use for parking staff?” we have asked “what do parking staff actually want and need in 2014?”

Come and Say Hello!

 

We’re really excited about hearing all the feedback on these new designs! See you there, at stand E40 by the Parkex Cafe.

Visit York Thrilled with Keltic’s Annika Corporate Blouse

Last month we had the pleasure of working with Visit York, York’s official visitor information service. We were delighted to provide the team with their new corporate image: the Annika Corporate Blouse.

With an idea in mind we provided the Annika blouse from our corporate blouse collection as it suited everyone and still gave them the corporate image they were looking for.
