Pro-Stretch Trims International Ltd have offices all over the world, our headquarters are in the UK, with a small staff workforce, but we also have branches in Hong Kong, China, Taiwan, and the USA. We also have weaving facilities in southern China and Vietnam….we really are a global company; employing around 250 staff across the group.
We produce around 50 million metres of trims annually, and can proudly say we have become a trusted supplier to 5 globally recognised sports brands.
Not an easy feat, and without our hardworking, dedicated staff, we wouldn’t be able to achieve this. That is why here at Pro-Stretch our staff are very important to us, they are the back bone of the company, and without them we wouldn’t be the business we are today.
Our teams have many years of experience between them, with our longest serving member of the UK team, Angie Larder – our Senior Sales Account Manager, still working hard for us after 17 years.
Our UK HQ office is based in the wonderful Cheshire countryside, surrounded by open fields, and various farm animals. In fact we have a field full of Donkeys literally outside the front door.
Happy staff=happy customers, and vice versa 😊, which is why we promote safe working environments and fair wages across all our offices and factories.
The main focus for our UK staff is to ensure excellent customer service and account management for all our customers. Which include top global sports and leisure wear companies; but we also work with smaller enterprises, and all our customers are a priority to us.
As a small, friendly team we have an excellent work ethic, and it is important to us that we all feel valued, our CEO Christine is a great ambassador for this.
