A wet day in London

We spent a wet day in the city visiting a few select clients. For the inner geek it was perfect weather for a bit of corporate umbrella spotting. I’ve pictured one poor individual that obviously needs to switch supplier. 
to see so many of our own umbrellas marching up and down the Leadenhall area. I’m sure passers by were wondering what I was smiling about…

Formula-E in Rome

What an utterly AWESOME weekend! We supply #msadAndrettiFE with all their apparel, umbrellas etc and as the #FormulaE #RomeEPrix coincided with our 3rd anniversary, we treated ourselves to go and see them in action. Pit lane access was the icing on the cake! So cool to see the entire team wearing our gear and be made to feel like one of the team. We had of course saved a couple of shirts and caps for ourselves for the event…

A visit to our main umbrella supplier.

We’ve recently revisited our main umbrella supplier in beautiful Yorkshire. The entire complex is carbon neutral. It’s run on a combination of solar, wind and hydro energy which is all captured on site. As if that wasn’t ‘green’ enough, we also received a sample of the umbrella with a canopy spun from around 60 recycled PET plastic bottles. We were able to study how designs are transferred to canopy by UV, Soft Feel and Silk Screen printing methods as well as the sewing process to create the bespoke finished product. We’d like to thank everyone at the plant for giving us such a warm welcome (along with proper Yorkshire sandwiches & tea.

A visit to Titleist.

We’ve been visiting Titleist for our annual review and took the opportunity to check out the golf club production facilities. Here, clubs can be tailored to the end user following a custom fitting. Very happy to report that we comfortably met all targets set by Titleist for 2016 and that we remain firmly entrenched within the UK’s top ten suppliers of corporate branded golf balls.
