Managing Transformation

We worked closely with Mr Richard Freedman to change a very small traditional Highland Dress Supplier into a High Tech, top quality volume processor of Dress Wear for Weddings & Formal Functions to help bring them to be the biggest and the best in very competitive sector of the Hire Wear market


Collaboration, Sourcing and Training

Our collaboration included the plan for Mr Robin & Co to specify and acquire the best possible equipment to organise its installation then follow up to train supervisors, operators & mechanics to an acceptable standard of proficiency.

This project proved an outstanding success coming in on time and on budget . The plant was later trebled in size to become a highly automated factory for which Mr Robin & Co were retained on an extended consultancy basis



Business transformation – The next level


Transform a small family business with a localised customer base into a national player in a highly competitive business sector.


To cope with the anticipated increase in demand for garment pressing and processing ACS brought in Mr Robin & Co who introduced the company to to concept of integrated machinery. Creating teams rather than just individuals .

The market leader in automated machinery is the Italian “Macpi Group“ who supplied state of the art equipment through Mr Robin & Co which was installed and supported by a training package for operators supervisors & mechanics.

As production demands increased, the Macpi machinery proved an excellent return on investment. Enabling the business to substantially increase its market share whilst not increasing its labour costs. Simultaneously the modern machinery enabled the company to provide improved and consistent quality .


“Mr Robin & Company is the top consultancy in our industry which has enabled ACS to offer higher quality at every level. Robins 40years of experience and guidance has been invaluable in supporting our vision and bringing it to reality.

“Following this investment in Macpi machinery, the retailer and the wearer now, get much improved trouser presentation, much smarter lapels on jackets and much nicer lying sleeves which all translates into a much happier experience and a much better look for those precious wedding pictures .”
