Our services are delivered with the highest standards of professionalism and expertise and we recruit and retain the best people in our industry for complete peace of mind. Through our leverage of synergies and our sharing of knowledge, we are able to remain at the forefront of product development and ongoing technological improvement. Whether its top-quality overalls or highly specialised garments, we can cater for every need. That’s why you’ll find our satisfied clients operating nationwide, at the forefront of the chemical, food, mining, motor, pharmaceutical and retail sectors.

Health, Hygiene and safety in the workplace has increased in priority and we assist you to ensure that your employees are appropriately dressed for their job functions, are presentably dressed and that their work attire meets the highest health and safety standards according to HACCP requirements to ensure that all your garments are hygienically cleaned to the highest standards.

We design and make up garments in our state of the art factories. Our extended textile range includes poly-cotton with a special finish that makes our premier work wear crease resistant, moth-proof and anti-static. We can also make garments with technical fabrics that are insect repellent, flame retardant, lint free, acid resistant and so on. Garments can even be customised with name badges, company logos, embroidery or reflector tape.

Garments In the wash

All garments are collected weekly and laundered at our largest and most advanced laundry facility in South Africa. These facilities are the largest and most technologically advanced in South Africa. Our other laundries, located across the country, also exceed expectations – using the perfect combination of time, chemicals, temperature and mechanical action to ensure that all your garments are hygienically cleaned to the highest standard. Garments are washed and steam dried in our fully automated facilities. We also give each garment a final quality check, and any necessary replacements or mending is done by our laundry staff, at no extra charge. The freshly cleaned garments are then delivered to your door and the new load of soiled work wear is collected for the laundry. It’s a seamless system.

First Garment is committed to continuous innovation; keeping abreast of the very latest methods and techniques available. Our most recent technological development is Radio Frequency Identification, or RFID. This system transmits the unique serial number of an object or a person via radio waves, improving the tracking of garments and saving time through automation of key processes to give you complete visibility and transparency. Radio Frequency Identification uses special tags that are sewn into each garment. These tags transmit the unique serial number of each garment to tag readers, through radio waves. Using our proprietary software, this system allows us to automate a number of key processes, including collection, sorting and tracking of garments. It’s very accurate, ensuring that garments are never misplaced or assigned to the wrong person. And it’s very efficient; reducing the time and labour required to process your laundry.

Garments-In-Wash First Garment Rental is also committed to sustainable use of the environment. That’s why we constantly monitor and improve our water, fuel, and chemical efficiencies. We are also exploring alternatives to phosphates in our detergents, reducing our electricity consumption through variable speed dryers, and using boreholes to reduce our eco-footprint.

And, as a proud member of the Bidvest Laundry Group, we have the credentials and clout to deliver on our promises. Truly, First Garment Rental is your Overall Solution.
