On 30 November 2016, PMG Schoolwear acquired the assets of Class Designs Hanwell, a long established retail supplier of school uniforms in West London. 
 
Commenting on the development, Paul Gelernter, MD of PMG, says, “This is great news for schools, suppliers and parents of children and students who attend schools supplied by Class Designs. It means the business will continue seamlessly and the supply chain will be unbroken. PMG is one of the largest, most experienced and competitive suppliers of school uniform nation-wide. We bring strength and reliability.
 
“For PMG, it gives us a personal relationship with schools and parents in the area. We are a multi-channel supplier and will maintain the outstanding service that Class Designs has provided over the years. PMG will also ensure the quality, service and value for money that PMG is famous for will extend to the customers of Class Designs.
 
“The service we provide to schools and parents will also be enhanced by moving it to bigger premises nearby, which will benefit from our updated transactional website and advanced technology, all designed to give a better shopping experience.”
 
Mary Gill of Class Designs, adds, “I am delighted that we agreed terms with PMG. I was concerned that the business should go to an experienced schoolwear supplier who understood and would maintain our tradition of excellent service. Under the new management, and with the strength of PMG behind it, I am confident the business will go from strength to strength.
 
I will continue to be involved with the business and I am satisfied that this move will enable us to provide an even better service to our schools and parents.”
