Manchester’s Clothes2order to create 30 new jobs thanks to six figure investment
Clothing supplier Clothes2order has unveiled expansion plans for 2015 which include creating 30 jobs, a search for new premises following a six-figure investment in equipment.
The Trafford Park-based company, which supplies customised clothing for uniforms, promotions and events, says its workforce is expected to reach 100 this year, up from 70.
After ordering more printing and embroidery machinery, Clothes2order is seeking additional production sites after reaching capacity at its Manchester headquarters.
Clothes2order prints and embroiders logos and slogans on to clothing for more than 20,000 businesses, clubs, charities and societies as well as individuals.
It is the fastest-growing division of Quayside Group, which saw revenues rise 50 per cent in the year to December 31, from £4.4 million to £6.6 million.
Managing director Michael Conway said: “The investment, innovation and service improvements we have implemented at Clothes2order over the past two years are really bearing fruit.
“We’ve substantially increased our market share by upgrading our website to make ordering easier, and by introducing one of the fastest turnaround times in the industry, with orders dispatched within 24 hours and no minimum quantity.
“Along with other initiatives, such as a click and collect service at Trafford Park, we have forged a reputation as the market leader in our industry and we aim to continue our progress with further substantial investment this year.
“During 2014 we recruited across the board, from warehouse staff and machine operatives to our customer support, sales and web development teams, and this programme of job creation will continue during 2015.
“We will soon double our printing capacity and we are targeting group revenues of £9m for the full year.”
