New Customer In Gibralter

Lisa wanted to visit them when she won an order from Bassadone Motors in Gibraltar!  We sent them sample garments from our corporate clothing collection so that they could make sure they were the right size for their staff –  and the perfect choice from their team.

They wanted a professional look for their staff to inspire confidence with their clients.  I really do believe that first impressions count and a good choice of company clothing goes a long way to achieve this.  Staff need to feel comfortable but look really smart and well presented.

Although we supply many customers overseas from Finland to British Honduras – even a yacht in Barbados, I am really pleased to have our first customer in Gibraltar 🙂  Thank you Bassadone Motors and sorry Lisa you can’t visit we need you here 🙁

Finalists in Northamptonshire Excellence in Business Awards

Business Excellence Awards

Yes we have gone it!  We have been shortlisted for the Northampton Business Excellence Awards in TWO categories.

1. Northamptonshire Most Enterprising Business


2. Environmental Award

We have visitors galore coming along to see us. Well I say visitors I mean judges.  Two judges from the Northampton Enterprise Partnership on Friday, another judge from LLoyds bank on Monday morning, filming in the afternoon, and the photographer in the afternoon.  PHEW!

Just writing the entry made me realise all that everyone does here at Cotton Roots and Impact Trading.  Little things like sorting the recycled paper through to bigger things like purchasing only biodegradable bags.  We are the only company in our industry I know that do this.

Enterprising because we have won major contracts this year against much larger organisation, developed new products and lead the industry with our new ethical products.  You can already watch us on the BBC when we featured on Working Lunch with Declan Murphy.

Now these awards! We will go along to an awards ceremony where the winners will be unveiled and Tom O’Connor is the celebrity host.  We hope we win. Yes we do. Exciting.

SO watch this space 🙂
