Acorn Down Under

Romsey Fire Brigade (CFA)G’day to Romsey Fire Brigade (CFA)

It’s 10,499.09 miles from Acorn’s premises in Coventry to the town of Romsey, which is 30 miles north of Melbourne in Australia.

Distance is no object for us though and we were delighted to be able to help out Romsey Fire Brigade with a range of personalised garments.

personalised garments for a fire brigade

We are sure that they are always a well turned out group but as you can see in the photo they look especially smart now.

The Brigade is part of Victoria’s Country Fire Authority (CFA) which co-ordinates community and volunteer fire services throughout the state.  Apart from providing fire and rescue services (with their impressive array of fire engines and support vehicles) Romsey Fire Brigade is very active in raising money for community projects.  It is worth taking a look at the Brigade’s Facebook page to see what’s going on – they have one or two different challenges to their UK counterparts.

Romsey is now officially our furthest away customer…unless you know better.

Take a look at the website to see our fantastic choice of workwear, outerwear and corporate clothing. If you can’t see what you want then we can source it.  Call us on freephone 0800 0190 552 or today.

More Kit for Wasps

Customised sports gear

Acorn has developed a great working relationship with our local rugby club, Aviva Premiership highfliers Wasps.

In previous news items we have reported on our work providing Wasps promotional t-shirts and both internal and external signage for the club’s Ricoh Arena shop.

customised team kit for Wsps

Now Acorn has been in action again for a couple of other parts of the Wasps organisation.

We have provided customised Gilbert netball kit for the Wasps Netball team (who play in the Ericsson indoor arena at the Ricoh), personalised team kit for the Wasps Developing Player Programme and done the embroidery for the team kit that’s on sale in the club shop.

Wasps have quickly cemented their place in the local economy by using local suppliers.  Since we have at least one very big rugby fan in the company (step forward md Duncan Horlor) it has been a real pleasure to provide our support to the club.

If you are looking for custom printed and embroidered promotional garments then why not talk to us today.  Acorn has a superb range of apparel from a range of leading brands and the capability to handle everything from a single t-shirt to large multi-garment orders.

Quality Garment Embroidery

Embroidered clothing: We’ve got it all sewn up.

No, not another excuse to talk about the boss’s racing success (although he did do pretty well driving an Aston Martin in the GT Cup recently).

We just thought that the picture really showed off the quality of our embroidery.

High quality embroidered garments from Acorn

All of the text and logos were supplied and digitised in house by our embroidery team.  The imagery was then sent off to specialist race suit suppliers HRX, in Italy, for manufacture, although most of our embroidery is done in-house.

Whether it’s polo shirts for an employee team, sports shirts, freshers’ hoodies or promotional caps, you can rely on us for customised garments
