Orchard Clothing was incorporated in 2011 and initially started trading as a national B2B supplier of uniforms direct into schools and to parents via our internet based platform. Our first trading base was in the Park Farm area of Redditch.
In December 2012 we took our first steps into retail and moved into a small shop in Mason Road Redditch. The number of local schools we supplied increased dramatically over the following three years so a decision was made in Januray 2015 to move into a larger commercial premises 6 Dunlop Road Hunt End Redditch. This enabled us to hold additional stock, branch out into alternative markets and to start our own embroidery production facility.
With the introduction of these new markets, we launched work wear, corporate clothing and team wear to local businesses and sports clubs. Our continued success quickly consumed our store capacity so in December 2017 we acquired the adjoining property, Unit 8, in December 2017. We then subsequently increased the number of embroidery machines and started our own in house garment printing service.
Following the introduction of our contract print and embroidery service together with increased customer sales we moved to our current location in June 2019. We again invested in additional machinery and implemented a fully bespoke E Commerce, retail, production and warehousing business solution.
Our success over the years has culminated in benefiting from strong long term relationships with our suppliers and customers alike. We have evolved into offering a high quality fulfilment service and in 2021 launched ‘Orchard Fulfilment’ to help manage growth in this sector.
