Blue Max Banner is expanding its quality control department at its head offices, in Wiltshire.



The schoolwear supplier is bringing in two new members of staff, to create a team of three.



They will be tasked with ensuring every garment shipped to customers is of the best possible quality.


“This is a highly complex process and one on which our business relies, particularly as schoolwear is a major part of our portfolio,” says Chris Whitby, commercial director.



“Colour consistency is critical to this sector, while fabric quality is also very much part of our business reputation. The team will be responsible for sourcing the very best, to ensure durability and longevity for customers,” he adds.



Christine Crowe, who is heading up the department, has 12 years experience in quality control. She has been with the Blue Max Banner purchasing department for four years, as a merchandiser.



Hannah Carr and Slawomir Pisarek make up the rest of the quality control team.
