ProGARM, the UK’s number one supplier of Arc Flash garments, has announced the appointment of Zoë Colbeck as Garment Technologist, as it continues its team expansion.
Following the recent appointment of Dietmar Rohrbach as Business Development Manager in Germany, Zoë is the newest addition to the team, and brings with her a wealth of experience gained during her 35 years in the textiles industry.
Having previously worked as a garment technologist for fashion industry giants such as JD Williams and Matalan, Zoë’s main responsibilities at ProGARM will include designing new products, quality checking prototypes, creating mock-ups and working closely with the testing and pattern departments.
Zoë commented: “I’m so pleased to be joining the ProGARM team! I couldn’t turn down the chance to innovate, develop and create garment technologies and test myself with a new type of challenge.
“I can’t wait to start designing garments that can play such an important role in ensuring workers’ safety, and ultimately saving lives.”
Zoë added: “The main challenge in my new role will be getting under the skin of the different industry standards and regulations surrounding Arc Flash PPE, but it’s something I can’t wait to get stuck in with!”
Adrian Jaoudat, Product Manager at ProGARM, said: “We’re delighted to welcome Zoë to the team and believe with her vast experience in the industry, she will make a very valuable addition to ProGARM.
“We’re always looking to grow and improve as a company and by appointing experienced garment technologists like Zoë, we believe this will help us achieve that goal.
“Arc Flash remains a very real danger facing those working in industrial sectors globally. As a result of this, we’re committed to ensuring our protective garments are always one step ahead of the curve in their design, to provide truly comprehensive protection to wearers.”
