case study: Taylor Made Designs Celebrates 40th Anniversary of Raising of The Mary Rose
This year marks the 40th anniversary of the recovery of the Mary Rose warship from the bed of the Solent, where she sank in 1545.

Following one of the most complex and expensive maritime salvage projects in history, the warship of the Tudor navy, serving under King Henry VIII, was finally recovered and laid to rest at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, where the ship’s restored remains are visited by thousands of tourists every year.

As part of a wider partnership with Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, Taylor Made Designs is proud to supply all the uniform needs of the 200 strong staff team and volunteers who manage the attraction and the award-winning museum built in 2013 to house recovered artifacts and tell the remarkable story of the ships journey to its final resting place.

James Taylor, Managing Director, Taylor Made Designs, says: “The Mary Rose represents an incredible part of our British history. It’s hard to believe 40 years have passed since it was recovered from the seabed off the south coast of England, a feat I remember witnessing on the news as a youngster. At Taylor Made Designs, are all incredibly proud to be able to play a very small part in supporting the Portsmouth Historic Dockyard in its quest to enable as many people as possible to visit the 473-year-old shipwreck and immerse themselves in the history and life of such an incredible artefact.

Dominic Jones, CEO of the Mary Rose Trust - the charitable organisation responsible for the Mary Rose and the development of the museum, says: “Taylor Made Designs consistently ensures all our staff and volunteers are kitted out in the custom-branded technical garments they need to go about their business. Ordering and deliveries are managed through an online portal, making it incredibly easy to manage stock and make sure everyone gets the garments they need, when they need them. I look forward to working with James and the team as we now head towards the 50th anniversary of the raising of the Mary Rose!”

Taylor Made Designs sets up in Holland and Poland to deliver direct to clients in mainland Europe
Taylor Made Designs (TMD) has for 30 years been based out of the South Coast, UK. Delivering uniform, workwear and branded merchandise to a significant base of loyal clients in the Superyacht, Hospitality and Leisure Sectors, and in more recent years, an expansion into the Cruise Line Sector.

‘Let’s face it, Brexit, and coming out of the European Union, has not been good for UK based businesses wanting to export into Europe,’ says Ed Taylor, Managing Director.

With an increasing requirement to supply new and existing clients across Europe, TMD has now set up Fiscal Representation in Holland, together with warehousing and logistical facilities in Berlicum, Holland and additional production capabilities in Lodz, close to Warsaw, Poland.

The move represents a significant opportunity for TMD to be able to provide its uniform management and consultancy services, supplying and manufacturing branded and unbranded uniform, workwear, gifts, and event giveaways to all sectors globally.

“Delivering into Europe, either via our 3LP partners in Berlicum, Netherlands or directly through our additional production facility in Lodz, Poland will remove unwanted stresses and paperwork for our clients – as though we were physically based in mainland Europe, having EU VAT status, which we now have. This move allows us to deliver directly to our clients, without duties, and providing our client has a valid EU VAT number, without VAT also. A simple, smooth transition through Europe, Of course, we will also continue to deliver under T1 status and hold stock for our clients where necessary.”

Mr Taylor continues, ‘We recognise that most of our client base is here in the UK, however, especially since the pandemic, a lot of our international clients have called for us to set up a more streamlined European distribution process to facilitate multiple European requirements. We have our eye on other 3PL facilities across the EU including France, Germany, Spain and Italy.

“It has been important for TMD to make this move in order to build on existing relationships and develop future partnerships with clients and operators.”

Blu Leisure makes a splash with new swimwear range made from recycled ocean plastics
This month, Blu Leisure launches Eco Blu its new, sustainable swimwear range created from recycled ocean plastics.

“Every year, an estimated 33 billion pounds of plastic is entering our oceans. This is having a devastating effect on marine life, causing the unnecessary deaths of millions of seabirds and hundreds of thousands of marine animals every year,” explains Vicki Peck, Blu Leisure Managing Director.

“By repurposing plastic bottles and other plastic waste recovered from the ocean into high quality products, in this case swimwear, we are creating a value for a material that otherwise threatens to cause irreversible damage to the marine ecosystem. At Blu Leisure we take our environmental responsibility very seriously. The launch of Eco Blu is part of our commitment to reducing our environmental impact and achieving net zero by 2030.”

Eco Blu is available now to any leisure operator keen to improve the sustainability of their swim retail offer. Garments are available for men and women, in a range of sizes.

Vicki adds: “In addition to the sustainability credentials, each garment is produced to the highest possible standard and has chlorine resistant properties which guard against wear and tear and optimise the product’s lifespan.

“Our strategy is to start the collection small, growing it slowly and responsibly to ensure we never over produce, thus safeguarding against the creation of excessive, avoidable waste, a huge problem in the global clothing industry.”

The lifespan of a fabric is not only determined by the way it is designed and manufactured but also by the way it is worn, washed and dried. Every Eco Blu item is accompanied by labelling that gives clear instructions on product care that supports longevity, again helping to reduce the amount of waste.

For more information about Eco Blu, visit: bluleisure.co.uk/products-and-services/eco-blu/. Or you can contact the Blu Leisure team on 01908 582525 for more details.
