Henleys to double its high street presence

25th Aug 2009

A DESIGNER clothing brand which was born in Manchester intends to double its high street presence over the next year, expand its overseas operations and launch new ranges of glasses and casual footwear.

Henleys Clothing has seen turnover virtually triple from £14m in 2007 to £38m to the end of March this year thanks to its fashionable range of men's and women's clothes which are immensely popular with 18 to 36-year-olds.

It has 10 stores across Britain but intends to roll out a further 10 branches over the next year.

Over the next three months, Henleys will open branches in Glasgow, Cardiff and the Lakeside Shopping Centre, in Essex.

It also intends to launch a new range of casual footwear as well as a range of glasses - which will be available from opticians - over the next year.

Ben Luscombe, founder and chief executive, said: "From being established in 1996, the business today supplies in excess of 250 independent retailers across the country as well as some of the biggest high street multiples including Bank, Republic and Scotts as well as mail order and internet businesses such as Littlewoods.

"Later this year, Henleys will also be sold throughout Germany through a distributor in that country which is a landmark for the company.

"Additionally we are also looking at expanding further into Australia - where we already have bespoke Henleys stores in Melbourne and Sydney - as well as increasing our presence in Ireland."

Simon Peters, Henleys' creative director added: "We are also developing our own eyewear range as well as a range of casual footwear - it couldn't be a more exciting time in the evolution of the company."

The company has grown from 10 staff in 2003 to 245 employees today.

Henleys' ongoing success has led to its nomination in this year's MEN Business of the Year Awards in the turnover between £25m and £50m category.

Bruce Walker, finance director, said: "Henleys has developed a consumer loyalty which is the envy of its competitors.

"This stems from its passion for innovative, trend setting designs and unfailing quality as well as short lead times, quick deliveries and excellent customer service.

"The Henleys spirit of design, quality and service is now incorporated in our own stores and despite the economic conditions we are continuing to expand our business across the country."
