Award-winning Impact opens dedicated Uniform Room

Award-winning Queenstown embroidery and screen printing business Impact has expanded its operation, opening a dedicated uniform display and fitting room.

Winner of the Small Business category at the Westpac Chamber of Commerce Awards last year, Impact has established itself over the last 23 years as the company of choice for printing, uniform embroidery, merchandise and promotional products for some of Queenstown’s biggest companies.

Owners Brigit and Paul van der Kaag said the new Uniform Room was in response to growing demand from clients looking for a professional service and the widest product choice available.

Offering a full range of product samples and sizes, the spacious, light and airy Uniform Room is a one-stop-shop for anyone looking for quality, hard wearing workwear, including trade businesses, activity operators, restaurants and schools.

“We’ve found in the past that people weren’t always sure what they wanted and browsing through a brochure was quite a one-dimensional way of shopping,” said Mrs van der Kaag.

“We now have all our uniform stock on display in most sizes and that enables us to offer a more professional service and give our clients immediate advice on size, styles and colour.”

The 100sqm room has private changing facilities and is already well received by long-term clients.

“We offer a thorough consultation to gain a better understanding of our clients requirements and if we don’t have an item or size in stock, we can usually get it in a couple of days,” said Mrs van der Kaag.

“Our goal is to look after people and ensure our clients always leave with exactly what they want each time they visit .

“We know Queenstown is a diverse marketplace and our long relationship with businesses here means we understand their needs well. We work hard to keep ahead of the game by offering the latest options and trends, the same as any supplier from bigger cities.”

“The Uniform Room is the logical next step for us in the expansion of the business.”

Impact’s current clients include everyone from Queenstown Resort College, Skyline, Rydges, Jacks Point, The Hills and Blanket Bay, to Just Build It and Frankton Electrical.

Appointments for the Uniform Room at its Bowen Street location are highly recommended to ensure a thorough and uninterrupted consultation.
