A Manchester-based clothing supplier has unveiled expansion plans for the year ahead, which includes new premises and to create 30 jobs after a six-figure investment.
Clothes2order, which supplies customised clothing for uniforms, promotions and events, says it expects to expand its workforce to 100 this year, up from 70.
The company, who prints and embroiders logos and slogans on to clothing for businesses, clubs, charities and societies, has ordered more printing and embroidery machinery and is seeking additional production sites after reaching capacity at its Manchester headquarters.
The revenue of the firm rose 50 per cent in the previous year, from £4.4 million to £6.6 million and is the fastest-growing division of Quayside Group.
Michael Conway, managing director of Clothes2order said: “The investment, innovation and service improvements we have implemented at Clothes2order over the past two years are really bearing fruit.
“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”
