KK Schoolwear 60 years old

This year, KK Schoolwear is celebrating 60 years in business. Situated in Magherafelt, Northern Ireland, the same purpose-built factory since 1973, the company still remains a family business after 60 years, with a focus on sourcing and manufacturing in the UK, creating jobs in the community, and building a highly skilled and motivated team – many of which have been employed by KK Schoolwear for over 25 years.

“Over recent years we’ve been involved in the redesign of numerous schools such as Millfield and Bromsgrove,” says KK Schoolwear’s sales and marketing director, Mona Houston. “Currently we have nine such projects in development with our retailers and schools. We see this role as ever more important in the years to come, as more and more uniforms are moving towards a tendering process. We see this as being a key trend with the importance of working in partnership becoming ever more significant.”

Going forward, the company’s main motivation is to remain committed to UK manufacturing and providing job security for its loyal workforce.
