Incorporatewear Ltd was appointed by Birmingham 2022 as Official Workforce Uniform Provider, responsible for designing, producing and supplying the uniform to the entire Games workforce.
We are also responsible for producing the uniform for technical officials, for Batonbearers during the Queen’s Baton Relay as it travels through the UK, and for the Commonwealth Collective; the 14,000 volunteers that will come together to help deliver the biggest sporting and cultural event the West Midlands has ever seen.
To encapsulate the tremendous work that has gone into the production of the uniform, here are some key statistics involved in production:
- Garments made 231,815
- Meters of fabric used 2591,830
- Buttons used 196,785
- Length of zips used 46,296
- Plastic bottles used to make the water bottles avoiding landfill 101,925
Ed Grigg, Managing Director of Incorporatewear, said: “From the moment Incorporatewear was first awarded this prestigious contract, we have been working closely with the Birmingham 2022 team to design and produce a uniform that will visually unite the Games workforce and incorporate the look and the vision of the Games brand. The fact that we are a local company based in Coleshill in the West Midlands has added to the excitement for the whole team at Incorporatewear. As a local company, it’s a fantastic boost for us and we’re delighted that our workforce will have the chance to supply and be associated with such an iconic event, right on our doorstep this coming summer.”
