ACS Clothing: Transforming the fashion industry to a circular model
Advanced Clothing Solutions (ACS) is one of the UK’s leading circular and sustainable fashion fulfilment facilities, based in Glasgow in Scotland.
For 25 years, ACS has specialised in rental fulfilment and clothing renewal. After defining and perfecting an innovative and scalable fulfilment solution for the traditional men’s formal hire market, ACS expanded into new markets within the fashion industry and is proud to enable the shift towards access over ownership.
ACS aspires to transform the fashion industry from the traditional linear take-make-dispose model toward a circular fashion model that extends the life of existing textiles and diverts clothing from landfills. ACS enables brands and retailers to introduce a rental or resale model alongside the existing e-commerce model. In turn, ACS enables consumers to rent fashion from high street names such as LK Bennett, Marks & Spencer, French Connection and Oasis, amongst others, from its base in Scotland. In addition, it has developed a full resale service allowing consumers to gain access to the increasing area of pre-loved items through its various partner relationships.
With circular fashion lauded as the future of sustainable style, fashion brands across the UK are embracing resale and rental in the name of circularity. ACS provides the resource to help retailers scale their rental and resale ambitions with ease.
ACS provides a complete rental and resale fulfilment service, managing the entire process from its purpose-built facility at Eurocentral, located in a developing biodiversity area complete with beehives, wildflowers and a wormery. It can store over three million items at its dedicated 200,000 sq ft fulfilment warehouse. From environmentally friendly cleaning to brand authentication, garment repair, photography, tailored branded packaging and delivery, ACS takes care of the whole process of returns and resale for all fashion goods and accessories. Using ozone technology to clean garments, ACS employs microplastic filters to minimise water pollution and recycles the by-product to make building bricks.
