Emirates Team New Zealand Selects
Events Clothing For Their Team Uniform
We are now an official supplier to Emirates Team New Zealand, along with companies such as Vodafone, ASB and Maersk. We were asked to step in and dress Emirates Team New Zealand for the 35th America’s Cup in Bermuda.
Emirates Team New Zealand’s Chief Executive, Grant Dalton, approached us as they needed a company that could urgently provide high performance uniforms for the entire team, quickly and reliably. Grant knew of our reputation and ability, and his trust was not misplaced. We broke all records and provided the uniforms on time – thanks to our great team!
Despite the extraordinary deadlines, we were able to improve the original designs to truly meet the teams needs and the Bermuda climate, be it on the water, manning the Shore Base or in the office – all designed, manufactured and delivered to Bermuda in less than 6 weeks!
An order of this complexity could be expected to take around 3 months to produce and deliver. To be ready for the starting gun we conducted garment fitting assessments with the crew and then flew design and QC staff to China to oversee production. What you would expect from a company with over 25 years of experience and service to the yachting industry and over 500 of the world’s Superyachts!
It is exciting to be partnering with Emirates Team New Zealand and a privilege to have such confidence placed on us. Now we place our confidence in them to wear Events Clothing gear all the way to victory.
