We are a progressive company and our shrewd buying skills continue to be recognised by the leading manufacturers across Europe. In 2004 we won one of the industry´s most prestigious awards in the form of the inaugural prize of Most Professional Buyers at the Independent Menswear Company awards.
It is often stated that in today´s radically changing business environment there is no time for sentiment. However, to continue earning the customer trust and loyalty that has set the foundations for our longevity, it is most important that we do continue to look to our past - this commitment will ensure that the age-old skills that have been passed down through the generations continue to be successfully practised at 43 Reform Street!
From our potato origins in Reform Street a long way back in 1874, it´s naturally pleasing to still have dealings with many farmers whose own Grandfathers and Great Grandfathers were on our books at the turn of the century. We are in a better position than most to offer these fellows a sympathetic ear at the time of any poor harvest!
I thank you for joining me in this trip back through the Cooper & McKenzie archives, and trust that you have enjoyed the journey!
