ACS Clothing are thrilled to have signed a new long-term contract with Moss Bros. This contract certifies that ACS will carry out the entire cleaning and fulfilment operations for Moss Bros Hire. This is by far the largest menswear rental contract in the UK.
Moss Bros has a long and rich heritage with over 170 years in business. As a long-standing and established menswear brand they have become one of the most respected and trusted names in the industry. With over 100 stores, they have extensive coverage across the UK, as well as a burgeoning e-commerce platform that ‘brings them closer to their customers’. Moss Bros portfolio boasts designer brands including DKNY, French Connection, Hugo Boss and Ted Baker. Moss also offer their own labels – Moss London and Moss 1851 – therefore, they have styles to suit everyone.
The history between Moss Bros and ACS
ACS is the leading menswear, womenswear and baby wear rental fulfilment centre in the UK with sustainability at its heart. ACS have enjoyed a very healthy partnership with Moss Bros Hire over the last 20 years. During this period, ACS supplied Moss Bros Hire with highland wear and kilt hire as part of their in-store proposition.
A smooth transition
Andrew Rough, our Chief Financial Officer, says the deal is the culmination of a lot of hard work and the combination of strategic objectives:
“A lot of hard work has been going on behind-the-scenes to ensure a smooth transition for both ACS Clothing, Moss Bros and their customers. This has been a team effort which has created a strong partnership.
The contract also joins together the strategic objectives of ACS and Moss Bros in offering the modern consumer alternatives to traditional menswear retail by showcasing clothing rental as a truly fashionable, economic and sustainable service”.
