  • Excellent choice of supplier – more details can be found on the supplier tab or the user guide

Bristol Uniforms Logo

The story of Bristol Uniforms began in 1801, when a small retail clothier, John Gardiner, set up a business in Union Street in Bristol. By the 1850s his company, Wathen Gardiner, was exporting ready-made clothing to the West Indies and Australasia, and by 1899 it had moved to a brand new factory in Staple Hill: the same site for our factory today, although at the time it was a semi-rural greenfield area. 

As one of the world’s leading emergency services protective clothing brands, Bristol’s PPE pedigree has been built on its 60 years’ experience in the development of innovative protective clothing solutions for which the original designs, product development, wearer trials and integrated manufacture are all managed internally.

Maintaining our customers’ PPE is central to delivering best value. Our integrated managed care programme delivers a comprehensive range of maintenance and monitoring processes including garment washing, decontamination, condition coding and repair.

We are a truly international business with customers in over 110 countries. A network of over 70 experienced local distributors, located in our major overseas markets, develop and maintain our growing business.

Bristol can demonstrate a long term track record of financial stability and resilience and continues to grow organically by focusing on its core business both in the UK and abroad.


Other suppliers on the framework include;
