Behind the Uniform

We’re on a mission to change the way uniforms are designed, developed and delivered
to leave a more positive legacy for us all. Behind the Uniform is our action plan to
deliver the greatest value and positive impact for our customers, our environment, and
our communities.

Behind the Uniform showcases the work that goes on behind the scenes to
ensure the best possible outcomes for those wearing Arrow Uniforms. Behind the
Uniform covers all efforts from sustainability and recycling programmes to
interviews with clients to learn how they make their uniform serve them.
