The Banner Group
The Banner Group have a deep rooted heritage, a long standing status and a distinctive image that they’ve developed across a growing number of product ranges, distribution channels and diverse markets dating back over the last 165 years.
Specialising across two distinctive divisions, Schoolwear and Sportswear, the business is always looking to maximise opportunities for their brands.
Currently employing over 180 people across three sites in Trowbridge, Runcorn and Seaham, the company has achieved significant growth following a management buyout in July 2015, backed by Private Equity Investors, MML.
The private equity ownership has enabled the business to invest thoughtfully in technology, people and infrastructure ensuring that they continue to supply their customers with innovative quality products and excellent service.
Their special blend of skills throughout the business makes them unique; offering a complete start to finish process from design, market, manufacture and delivery of ‘fit for purpose’ garments with the students always at the forefront of their minds.
