Tradition and quality keep the business moving forward

Mike Humble, Behrens Business Development Manager, speaks about their company and its future

Why choose behrens for your sport and casualwear? what sets you apart?

Behrens have been innovating fabrics for almost 200 years so when you buy a garment from us, you know all of those years of knowledge and expertise have gone into building a product that is fantastic quality and built to last. We are also the only supplier of unbranded teamwear offering next day delivery on our 100 per cent in stock range.

How large and varied is your range?

We currently hold just over 900 SKUs in our Manchester warehouse and this is set to grow when we extend or range to include 11 stock colours across the five core teamwear garments from this September. The inclusion of specialist match day garments for cricket and rugby as well as six different types of sports bag (from rucksacks to large wheeled kit bags) puts a huge range of unbranded products at your disposal.

How quickly can you deliver orders?

All orders placed before 3pm are delivered the next working day to ensure you have plenty of time to decorate the products and hit your customers’ deadline. Where customers are local to our Trafford Park base, orders can also be collected the same day if you need to move quickly.

How can customers check what is available and what new lines you have?

All of our trade customers receive a weekly email showing our free to sell stock on a Monday and further daily updates can be downloaded from our website if you need more accurate stock figures later in the week. New lines are promoted through the same weekly stock email and anyone wanting to see the range first hand can click on a link to arrange a rep visit. The Behrens website (www. behrens.co.uk) also has a full list of all garments we stock with high resolution images available from the site.

What services do you offer your customers?

Alongside the huge stock holding we keep enabling you to avoid tying up cash in your own stock range, we also provide design assistance to help you show what our range will look like branded up with your logo. As our new product booklets are unbranded we can design and print a bespoke front cover including your company logo and contact details so you can adopt the booklet as your own stock collection.

How easy is it for customers to use your bespoke design service and how quickly can it be turned around?

Our bespoke service allows customers to make use of our large stocks of sports and outerwear fabrics held at our manufacturing units around the world. If we don’t currently stock the colour scheme you need why not speak to us about making your bespoke colours scheme and if this utilises existing fabric stock, garments can be manufactured in 4-5 weeks. Minimum orders for this type of project tend to be around 50 units per size but give us a call to discuss your specific requirements.

Do you offer advice on garment fitting and size specification?

Every garment we hold in stock has a full garment specification and size chart available to enable you to accurately judge what your customer needs, avoiding those decoration nightmares when sizing is inconsistent. The best thing to do as always is pick up the phone and discuss your needs as we are always happy to give help and advice on this and anything else we can assist with.
