MyWorkwear, a leading supplier of custom clothing and personalised workwear, is celebrating 45 years since its foundation back in 1976. The Telford-based company was founded by Mike Worthington back in a time when ‘flares were all the rage and Dancing Queen was number one.’
The business began life by producing golf and cycle bags but very quickly moved into the uniform and workwear business in 1980 due to the demand from Japanese businesses for overalls that fitted their new UK workers. Mr Worthington attributed the growth of the company to the fact that he and his team ‘always focused on what the customer needed’ and to MyWorkwear being very quick to launch its first website when the retail world started to move online.
The company now supplies businesses throughout the UK, including Vimto, Great Ormond Street, Oxford University and the Royal Airforce. It produces thousands of garments per week and says that it ‘continues to adapt, develop and expand,’ having doubled both its revenue and staff numbers in the last two year, whilst also investing in new machinery.
‘We’ve seen a lot of changes over the years, not just in the fashions, but one thing remains the same – our emphasis on quality and customer service’ said James Worthington, managing director at MyWorkwear. ‘As we celebrate this milestone, we are proud of the achievements we’ve made, and we look forward to making UK businesses ‘workwear happy’ for the next 45 years and beyond’.
