Alexandra Workwear has been shortlisted for four awards.

The Thornbury-based company has been shortlisted for a Business Leader award in the Business of the Year (51+ employees) category, alongside three nominations in the South West Contact Centre Awards.

Alexandra employee Rebecca Talbot has been shortlisted in the Customer Services Representative of the Year category, while Gemma Walker is a finalist for the Hero of the Year award. Alexandra has also been nominated in the ‘Covid – Supporting Customers’ category.

Since the start of the pandemic, the company has transformed its business operations with over 90 per cent of manufacturing capacity in its UK and international factories being switched to producing scrubs for the NHS.

Alexandra has also expanded its supply chain network to source millions of pieces of PPE.

Rebecca Jones, global sales and commercial director at Alexandra, said: “It has been an exceptionally challenging 18 months and it is fantastic to see the incredible hard work of our staff being recognised with these nominations.

“It is thanks to everyone pulling together that the business has been able to do its bit to serve our wonderful NHS with the supplies it has desperately needed through this crisis. I am immensely proud of all involved.”

It is the second year in a row that Alexandra has been included in the South West Contact Centre Award nominations, after five category shortlists and one win in 2020. The 2021 winners will be revealed on November 4.

The winners of the Business Leader awards will be revealed at a ceremony in Bristol on 23 September.

Alexandra, which employs more than 1,500 people, is the UK’s largest workwear provider and has been in operation since 1854. For more information,visit
