Improving textile management in companies

There are many job titles to describe the person who handles purchasing and inventory for a company – procurement manager, supply chain coordinator, materials management specialist. No matter your title, if you manage textile solutions then you understand the importance of choosing the right workwear management solution. This choice is key for maintaining a safe and hygienic work environment, allowing you to prioritise your core operations.

The challenges of textile management

Managing textiles is not simple. Think about the challenges and expertise required to handle textile management on your own.

First, there are the safety, hygiene and environmental regulations you need to follow. Some industries – such as healthcare, food manufacturing and pharmaceuticals – have stricter regulations than others. It takes specialised skills and knowledge to comply with these standards. Your employees should know how to inspect the garments for damage, repair them, launder them correctly, store them properly and maintain detailed records of all activities. Moreover, regulations and guidelines are constantly changing, adding more complexity to the process.

Next, the number of garments needed can vary significantly. You may have a seasonal increase in staff at your hotel chain or a surge in patient admissions in your hospital. Optimising the right number of textiles in stock requires careful planning and efficient resource management.

Finally, when purchasing workwear, you need reliable suppliers. Finding suppliers you can trust can be time-consuming. Though there are many good suppliers out there, some prioritise selling new garments rather than producing durable garments or prolonging the lifespan of your existing textiles.

Managing textile solutions independently often means hiring a specialist or training an employee, taking time away from their core tasks. This role comes with a lot of pressure since efficient textile management is crucial for safety, health and smooth operations.
