N Brown to relocate production to UK from Far East

Feb '11
N Brown, a home shopping fashion retailer recently revealed that, it is planning to again relocate its production base from the Far East to the UK.

The £690m group has summoned a meeting of all the prospective suppliers during February as the relative price advantages that it initially enjoyed with a production base in a foreign country are now diminishing.

The firm, in October last year warned that, as it is struggling to face the price rise by the suppliers, it too may raise the prices of its new collections by up to five percent.

N Brown's top officials are quite excited over this relocation idea which would enhance the firm's contribution to the UK's economy, as presently only one percent of the firm's overall production takes place in the UK.

Further, as the economies of the Far Eastern countries are developing, it has brought along a rise in the salaries of the workers and the same trend is likely to persist in future also as these economies continue to flourish.

But then, as the fabric prices carry a global element, the same rates should prevail all across the world.

N Brown stated that, they are trying to find out if, the textile firms in the UK which carry out production comparatively on small scale have that potential to raise their production.

The firm has convened a meeting of over 30 textile producers, mainly from the northwest and the Midlands. The meeting will be held on February 10 at the Leicester City Football Club, where these producers will be asked to submit their tenders for work.

N Brown which produces various brands including Figleaves, Jacamo and Simply Be, has its major storehouse and call centre in Manchester.
