About Us

Welcome to Red Oak Direct Limited, the UK work wear & clothing specialists!

Established in 2002, Red Oak Direct Limited are major suppliers of high visibility clothing, work wear, leisure wear, waterproof and foul weather clothing, footwear, gloves, and all types of personal protective equipment (PPE) to industry, commerce, schools, colleges, universities, government bodies, charities, clubs, and of course the public too!

Through traditional sales channels, including sales reps throughout the U.K. and our existing web store which opened in 2003, we currently stock and supply over 10,000 different products, and provide full in-house design facilities to print or embroider our garments to meet our customers’ requirements. We can produce everything from the simplest of single colour text, up to truly amazing photographic quality full colour logos for the most demanding applications.

We pride ourselves on our ethical principles, and always strive to help our customers to meet their requirements and deadlines, including an expedited turnaround service if required. If you have an urgent deadline to meet please call us first - we will always go further than our competitors to help out customers in trouble! 

We also have a U.K. based bespoke manufacturing service available for truly individual garments to match your exacting requirements, and if cost is more constrained, we are also able to customise many of our existing garments to help meet both your requirements and your budget!

We are proud to supply to some of the most prestigious companies and organisations in the world, and our products can be seen everywhere from major music tours and festivals, to television and film productions, sporting events, as well as marches and rallies. Our high visibility children's garments keep thousands of little people safe with school walking buses, and when they get older, we supply many stag and hen parties too!

We are always striving to innovate, and love to hear any suggestions you may have for new products or ideas - please do drop us a line and we will always try to help.
