Garment firm plans for expansion

Wigton-based garment decoration firm Stitch & Print is entering its ninth year with new expansion plans afoot.

The business launched nine years ago this week, has grown steadily each year and the recent purchase of four new embroidery machines will enable further expansion.

The new equipment will also allow the firm to maintain their current local and national contracts that they secured in 2012 and before.

Owner Richard Mattinson said: "We have grown every year since we started and we want to keep growing this year. To do that we will continue to work on providing a better service, more products and better pricing.

"The new machines will help us keep product turnaround times at their current level, keep business high therefore maintaining local jobs."

The business supplies embroidered work wear, school uniforms, sportswear among other products to a wide variety of businesses and organisations.

Stitch & Print employs four local people and has had a successful 2012 which has seen them introduce an online create your own design feature, allowing clients to design their own garments, and creating their own YouTube videos.
