We’re passionate about building partnerships with our clients, so we put a lot of time into finding the right people for our team, both in New Zealand and abroad, and nurture their talents. Our team are genuine experts at building one-on-one relationships with even the largest clients.
We love partnering with clients to deliver tailored solutions. Our concepts and design team thrives on understanding each client’s brand and dreaming up innovative promotional tools that are perfectly aligned to brand values or a campaign strategy.
Whether it’s developing, supplying and distributing a new branded uniform range, or finding an original Christmas gift for a client’s customers and staff, we are the most experienced and accessible company in New Zealand. We’ll work side by side with you to take your project from idea generation through to production, warehousing and distribution.
Focused on Sustainability
Our customers demand an ethical and sustainable supply chain. Partnering with like-minded, sustainable producers is at the heart of what we do.
The factories we use are accredited and audited under both Sedex and BSCI, to ensure ethical and sustainable practices, but our commitment to social responsibility goes much further than accreditation
Our sustainability initiatives include:
- Developing fully compostable poly-bags for import packaging to reduce single-use plastic. This is a New Zealand first.
- Establishing a certified organic cotton supply.
- Leading the way in using recycled plastic (RPET) instead of polyester. We now offer a full range of RPET apparel.
We always make special by bringing together quality, price and sustainability.
U-ME has become a trusted partner in the supply of promotional products and corporate uniforms. Our clients know they can depend on us to deliver on time to the agreed specification.
If we don’t believe we can meet a required timeframe or specification, we say so. And if we commit to a delivery date, we deliver. It’s that simple.
Our “on the ground” presence in New Zealand and abroad is backed up by specialised cloud-based systems. Suppliers and clients alike can rely on constant communication from a local team, so that everyone has timely, accurate information on quality expectations and timeframes.
We are always delivering special by:
- Offering a business-to-business (B2B) portal for easy ordering and ongoing management of uniform and promotional product orders.
- Defining Service Level Agreements for all our clients, with monthly reporting.
- Maintaining our own warehousing and National Distribution Network, ensuring we get the right products on time to every client, wherever they are.
- Employing a dedicated team in Shanghai to ensure robust supply partnerships and rigorous quality control.
