[07 JAN 99] COVENTRY CLOTHING CENTRE PRESS RELEASE
Clothing Manufacturers Suited To Awards

Eight Coventry clothing manufacturers have 'sewn' they are a stitch above the rest when it comes to improving the image of the industry.

They have all received recognition by The Clothing Manufacturers Association and The Clothing Centre for reaching set standards covering a range of areas, from health and safety to minimum holiday entitlement.

The eight manufacturers each received a certificate of recognition from Malcolm Gillespie, chief executive of Coventry & Warwickshire Chamber of Commerce Training & Enterprise, at a special ceremony.

The awards are part of the long-term strategy by The Clothing Manufacturers Association to implement minimum standards in order to promote the image of the industry, and ultimately to encourage more people into it.

Councillor Ram Lakha, chairman of Coventry Clothing Centre's Committee, said:

"The Clothing Centre is here to support local manufacturers and by providing them with the opportunity to meet certain set standards we are also helping to promote the image of the industry.

"We want to encourage as many people to consider entering the clothing industry as possible, and one way of achieving that is by helping to promote its image through such awards.

"Whilst not every manufacturer who volunteered to have an audit reached the set standards, they were not far behind. We will now be concentrating on making sure they achieve it next time.

"Of course, the major retailers all expect manufacturers to be reaching certain standards, so it is in their interest to ensure they achieve, and maintain, them."

Coventry & Warwickshire Chamber were instrumental in providing the finance for the audits to be carried out on the volunteer companies.

The eight charter recipients were Amni Ltd, Brigade Ltd, Crestpaim Ltd, Fariane Johnson Ltd, R Farmah & Co Ltd, Mortex Enterprises Ltd, S R Holbrook Ltd, and Stoke Row Fashions Ltd.
