MSA Bristol is a global leader in the development,
manufacture and supply of safety products and equipment for the emergency services.
Formerly Bristol Uniforms, global safety equipment
manufacturer MSA Safety Inc. acquired UK based Bristol
Uniforms in January 2021, a move that strengthened the
global brands growth strategy to protect fire fighters from head to toe with the very best safety technology and providing an avenue to expand its business in the UK and key European markets.
The combined expertise of both Bristol Uniforms and MSA Safety enhance and strengthen its offering to its customers and now provides top-to-toe protection to firefighters and other safety services across the world.
Prima Solutions first started working with Bristol Uniforms in 1999, working closely together and building great relationships as well as gaining a very clear understanding of their requirements to find the right solutions for them.
Prima continues to support the business following the merger, utilising PrimaNet technology to support their expansive growth strategy. Prima’s software and wealth of industry knowledge delivers ERP solutions that are agile, fully scalable and designed to meet MSA Safety Bristol’s unique requirements.
PrimaNet’s Managed Care module which sits within the Wardrobe Management application was a key differentiator when it came to MSA Bristol’s managed service division, providing comprehensive lifetime garment maintenance.
As well as providing the highest standards of laundering and repair, MSA Bristol are able to identify each item using a unique barcode to ensure adequate stock availability while other garments are laundered/repaired.
The software not only provides total visibility, complete control and real-time information for the entire process, it also delivers a 7 day professional cleaning & repair service turnaround for its valued customers.
The PrimaNet system has saved the business time and money whilst supporting its continued growth plans.
LET'S GET STARTED
"Keeping track of each item of PPE throughout each stage of its lifecycle is crucial to planning and delivery at Bristol. Not only can we keep track of where each station’s and individual’s kit is, we can make sure that care is prioritised based on when an order first arrived and when it needs to be delivered back to the station. This has already allowed us to seamlessly process 3,500 transactions in the first 3 weeks of going live with the PrimaNet system and has been extremely well received in our service centres."
"Having worked with Prima for over 10 years now, we know that the systems really do add real value. As an industry leader in PPE production and maintenance – not every IT supplier has facilities that suit our business so exactly! This is no doubt partly due to the relationship we share with Prima, they really understand our individual business needs and so we are able to comfortably work together to find the right solutions across Bristol Uniforms."
"We always aim for a 7 day turnaround for garment care processing. As soon as a garment arrives, we can log it into the system and calculate its turnaround to give a realistic and achievable return date. Everything is scanned and tagged separately according to each garment’s unique ID so there is no room for error, which is extremely important when a station is relying on having the right sizes and levels of equipment available at all times."
