Two of the biggest names in the superyacht uniform sector have merged to form DWD Uniform Solutions…
In an unprecedented and forward thinking move in the Yacht Uniform Sector, Dolphin Wear and Deckers Uniforms have taken the decision to Merge the companies after decades of friendly competition between them and create DWD. Uniform Solutions.
David Ireland of Deckers Uniforms explained. “We were all in agreement many years ago that we would be able to offer a much better service with far more benefits to our clients if we were able to come together, and we were not the only ones! Clients and friends in the industry voiced the same opinion on many occasions.”
Patrick Gilliot of Dolphin Wear went on to explain. “When we first discussed the concept, the timing was not right for either company and so as we did not want to drop the idea our 5-year story began. Now we are finally able to share our good news with everyone. Already the 2 companies are working together as if we had been 1 team all along which proves for us this was the right move at exactly the right time. As yachts get larger so do their demands and needs, therefore what we have created is the answer to the future requirements of our industry.
Lucy Ireland of Deckers said. “We are incredibly excited about the possibilities this move opens up for both our clients and the staff. Dolphin Wear and Deckers are like 2 halves that perfectly complement each other. Everyone has entered the agreement with an open mind willing to learn and share experience so as to create the best platform going forwards. The benefits are already speaking for themselves with reduced lead times, bigger stock pool for fulfilling orders, more simplified communications, bigger sales and operational teams, better showroom facilities and the list keeps going!
