Ballyclare managing director Carlton Greener said: “This is excellent news for us. It underlines the quality of the clothing we are already supplying to Network Rail, and also of the polycotton workwear which is covered by the new contract.

“Our hi‐vis polycotton range has recently been redesigned to provide improved fit with ladies option, better performance and greater value for money. It includes various garments such as jackets, cargo trousers and coveralls, and like all the clothing that Ballyclare supplies to Network Rail, these are in a high visibility orange which is fully compliant with the recently introduced RIS‐3279‐TOM standard.”
