New headquarters signals growth for Cumbrian clothing company
Carlisle-based Liberty Work and Leisure is moving to bigger premises in to support its growth plans.
Recent successes mean the firm has now outgrown its present location on Millbrook Road.
The firm intends to be trading from its new headquarters in the Stolle Europe warehouse on Peterfield Road in Kingstown by the end of September.
Owner Andrew Dunning said: “Our focus on building relationships with customers and providing bespoke solutions for their clothing needs has seen the business grow extensively.
“I want to put plans in place to ensure that continues. We’ve been limited by our current premises so the obvious answer was to find somewhere that can facilitate our expansion.
“The new building is more than three times the size and will allow us to offer an enhanced service while providing the space we need for increased volumes and extra staff.
“It’s an exciting new chapter in Liberty’s history and we’re all looking forward to the future.”
Work has started to create a new reception area and showroom where customers will have access to an extensive range of corporate work and leisure wear, PPE, uniform and promotional gifts.
Liberty currently employs 13 staff and expects to create new jobs with the expansion.
The company provides clothing for businesses including AW Jenkinson Forest Products, ECM and Center Parcs.
It has been a leading provider of branded work wear, corporate wear and promotional products since it was formed in 1995, supplying clients across Cumbria and beyond.
