Our people count

Established in 1935 and employee-owned since 2015, we are very proud of all that we have achieved in our history so far. We’re also extremely proud of our people and the way that we work together as a team.

Our mantra has always been to care about how we do business. We care about our ethical standards and how we interact with our suppliers and customers, and also how we care about each other. Coming to work might be a financial necessity, but it should be rewarding in other ways. The relationships that we build with each other are important for our wellbeing and our sense of satisfaction at the end of a good day’s work.

Demonstrating care in meaningful ways is one of our core values and is central to our ethical approach. We work hard to be a truly caring business to work for, benchmarking ourselves against other organisations and many of the most stringent independent UK accreditations.

In 2017, we were reaccredited with IIP Gold, achieving an outstanding 192 evidence points out of 196. With just 16% of UK organisations achieving IIP Gold and only 22 organisations in Stockport, this is an achievement that we are very proud of.

In 2018, we became an accredited Living Wage employer, underlining our value of care for all our people. In 2019, we were ranked 19th UK Best Workplace and 5th Best Workplace for Women™ by Great Places To Work™, confirming our commitment to become a high trust, high performing workplace.

It’s also very important that the skilled people who make our garments work in safe and responsible environments. Thanks to the dedication of our overseas team, we’re also striving to achieve greater transparency in our supply chain.

We believe that it is important to adopt a transparent and ethical approach to business.

We do not supply directly to the public or to schools or shops within schools. We support specialist retailers who stock our products. We only use factories which are fully compliant with all health, safety and child/labour regulations and we care about the products and services that we offer to our customers.
