• What is your vision for the future? Are you looking to expand?
We are based in Lancashire, the textile capital of the UK. We ship all around the world. Our products have been delivered to many countries including France, Germany, Denmark, Lithuania, Spain, USA, Canada and Japan.
We have a three to five-year plan; the aim is to keep doubling the revenue year on year and by year three we want to be established and bringing in sufficient income to sustain the business and our family living.
Expansion will have to take place at some point. As sales increase, stock will have to increase. If there is a demand for increased embroidery capacity then this, along with the extra stock holding, would necessitate more space.
We are not looking at ‘world domination’ but a comfortable business that has developed based on a reputation for providing excellent quality products backed up by excellent customer service.
