Sparks & Ellis is one of South Africa’s leading uniform suppliers and manufacturers. It specialises in complete uniform solutions and offers clients a head-to-toe service. Developing technologically advanced products, Sparks & Ellis offers uniforms and equipment for security, traffic, fire and rescue, ambulance, law enforcement, and corporate clients. Sparks and Ellis was established in the early 1930s, and bought in 1967 by Cape Union Mart. It is now owned by Cape Union Mart Group (70%) and empowerment partner, Thebe Investment Corporation (30%) and is one of the few suppliers of uniforms to have a Level 2 BEE rating.
Sparks and Ellis Uniforms has just launched The PanteraT ™ – a new Softshell 2 jacket, which effectively replaces both a jersey and a warm jacket. The PanteraT ™ is locally manufactured to meet specific client requirements. This lightweight jacket is warm as well as wind and water resistant. The outer fabric is smooth, easy to clean and exceptionally durable. It is also stylish and suitable for a variety of different working environments such as traffic uniforms, security uniforms, combat uniforms and EMS uniforms.
Some features include top mock pocket flaps with press studs, where badges can be included on the uniforms. It also has a shirt style collar so that insignia can be attached, as well as shoulder straps for epaulettes. Another unique feature is the inclusion of zips in the side seams, which allows easy access to a hidden item, such as a weapon or a radio.
