At the end of 2021, Meltemi, the Health Care Division of Alsico Laucuba, won the contract to supply the SAS with their uniform through NHS national Procurement. The contract is 6 years long and will provide the ambulance staff, paramedics and first responders with modern uniforms with elevated functionality.
Established in 1995, The SAS now operates as ‘one of the largest emergency medical providers in the UK’ (wiki) and they employ more than 5,000 members of staff. The new design still nods respectfully to the previous design and has retained the signature bottle green colour affiliated with the service since it’s conception.
The advanced, stretch fabrics exhibit a new fibre technology that allows more comfort and mobility and is able to cope much more suitably under the demands of the daily duties of the SAS team.
“To help our staff deliver the best care to our patients across Scotland, it’s extremely important that they have a modern durable uniform that they can work comfortably in. We are delighted to work with Meltemi over the next six years to ensure our uniforms meet the needs of our dedicated staff.” - Paul Bassett, Chief Operating Officer of the Scottish Ambulance Service
“Meltemi are very proud to support such an incredible community of people. These past couple of years the NHS and the Emergency Services across the UK have exemplified an exceptional work ethic and grit. Without their efforts, we would not function as a nation, and we couldn’t be more pleased to be partnering with the SAS. We aimed to provide uniforms that not only performed well functionally but also stylish, more fitted uniforms they could wear with pride. We hope the new uniform roll out will put a pep in their step after the tough times of the pandemic.”
