Schoolwear suppliers Trutex and William Turner & Son have formed an export alliance after identifying growing demand for specialist schoolwear overseas.
The affiliation will see the firms co-operating in export sales development and logistics, offering a single point of contact for uniform providers across the Middle East and Far East.
“We’re really pleased to be working with William Turner & Son as its product range of accessories complements our own offering of core garments,” says Matt Easter, Trutex MD. “They, like us, are keen to develop overseas markets where we both see great potential.”
Dan Turner, William Turner & Son MD, adds, “Trutex is the biggest brand in schoolwear, and we have wanted to grow our export sales for a number of years. By sharing our resources and offering overseas customers a straightforward buying experience, we hope to achieve that.”
Trutex and William Turner & Son have recently returned from a successful exhibition in Dubai, as well as meeting potential distribution partners in China.
