About Us

Gary Whittaker

Managing Director

Started off helping his father on Whittakers Market Stall before developing a schoolwear shop in Blackburn that is amongst the largest in East Lancashire. Most schools now have embroidered logos so the company invested in new embroidery technology. The company then began to develop by providing uniforms for local businesses and are now providing embroidered garments all around the country.
