What Sets Us Apart

The first responder uniform landscape is changing. Agencies are moving from fully custom unforms with braiding, costly materials and incredibly long manufacturing lead times. Most are now seeking relationships with uniform suppliers who can meet their demanding needs with readily available products. And this often includes items beyond apparel – departments are more active than ever within their communities and need give-aways for community events, morale gifts, and more. They need a vendor-partner that can support department needs while meeting the stringent and demanding quality and time requirements.

What makes Impact the choice for over 60 agencies in New England?

Our Account Managers are dedicated professionals who understand the demands of First Responders. Some of been on the job, served in the military, or worked in a supporting agency. They have training on the products, needs and unique requirements. Our Team is outound – that is, they will come to your department to discuss products, conduct presentations, or just drop off samples! If your team has questions or wants to place an order, your AM will work with your schedule to address your needs!

Impact simply has one of the best showrooms in New England! Once there, visitors can immerse themselves in so much more than uniforms! From leading suppliers including Carhartt, Under Armour, Nike, Adidas, North Face, Vinyard Vines, Dri Duck and so much more! And that doesn’t include our uniform companies – First Tactical, 5.11, Elbeco, Game, UA Tactical, and the list goes on!  If you are looking for promotional/hardgoods we have amazing products like drinkware from YETI, knives from Benchmade, backpacks and bags from Ogio… And of course, thousands of private label (non big box/retail) brands.  Something for all price points and all budgets!



A major differentiator and what truly sets Impact apart from “traditional” uniform stores is our in-house production capabilities. With significant production capabilities in screen printing, embroidery and applied vinyl materials (reflective), our team can meet demanding production schedules and ensure the highest quality decoration. Our equipment is state-of-the art (just ask – we love giving tours). Using the industries best printing presses (MHM) and embroidery (Baruadan) we challenge anyone to present better product with more detail! We cut our reflective materials in-house too! So custom scrambles, text or logos are never a problem.

Today’s First Responder’s are busier than ever balancing work, training and family. Gone are the days of wasting their time driving (sometimes hours) to get to a uniform supplier to only then have to return for partial pick-ups, sizing, etc. Impact’s Team will build a dedicated web-based store unique to your department/agencies needs. The store offering should mirror the uniform policy but can always have additional items offered that are marked “not for duty”! We can add a department YETI, too. 

The process to build out the site has been made simple – your department works with a dedicated Account Manager to identify the items needed, decoration requirements, etc. This can take place in our showroom or at your department. Our Art Department builds detailed images of the uniforms showing all decoration/logos for approval.  We then create the site and launch! Uniformity in department branding, efficient delivery, and consistent quality and service…  With over 60 agencies using this service we can provide references upon request!

We are comfortable working with department leadership and uniform committees. Let us know how best to help you streamline your uniform program!

Perhaps the single biggest struggle with uniforms today! “When can we get them?” Impact is a stocking dealer for several of the biggest suppliers in the industry. Our goal is to provide completed items within 5-7 days of ordering for stock items and 10-15 for non-stock. Where issues exist, we work to communicate the problem and our solution. We present options when possible. We recognize the criticality of uniforms for First Responder’s and take seriously the responsibility of getting delivering them quickly and accurately.
