Erve UK & Ireland’s first anniversary!

Our first year!

Our first year has been a profound success as we deliver on our mission of increasing retailer value through maximising margins and volumes with high quality products from a reliable source, and brand owner value through improved market coverage in line with their brand and business expectations.

The team both in the UK & Ireland and within the wider Erve Group has been fundamental in us bringing over 37 years of industry knowledge and expertise to the UK & Ireland. We continue to be people focused as we further grow the team and our market share step by step.

Our top licensors and brand owners have been on board with us from day one. We have now transitioned most of our EU agreements into the UK market, resulting in a strong portfolio to offer our customers.

Early in the year we also saw our first post Brexit container arrive on UK shores, delivered direct to our new UK warehouse and subsequently on to our customers and end consumers.

We are now very excited to be able to launch our new B2B Webshop in the UK to enable us to serve UK & Ireland retailers of all shapes and sizes.

We look forward to another successful year as we move into 2023 and continue to design and produce high-quality fashion apparel and accessories, made with love for UK and Irish consumers.

Meet some of the UK & Ireland based team

“My key focus is ensuring our customers are connected to outstanding apparel and accessories. Leading the business and our exceptional team, I strive to grow brands’ global reputations and offer full support as a transparent and reliable vendor for branded, licensed and private label merchandise. Building trusting and long-term relationships with our business partners in the UK & Ireland and globally is important to me and allows us to support brand owners and retailers to untangle the complexities of creating winning character, gaming and branded collections. Another important aspect of my role is to leverage our global reach, economies of scale and buying power to secure prices that maximise our customer’s margins whilst ensuring market leading sustainability, quality, and compliance. This involves working closely with all aspects of our business, including our sourcing companies.”
“I work with licensors to build long term relationships for their brands and licenses. I am involved with license negotiation and creating business plans to secure great assets for the Company. My license role also includes working with approvals. I work closely with the global Erve design teams which adds an extra layer to my role and I get to see all the amazing designs. At Erve we all work together globally. I am part of the licensing circle where we share ideas, help and support each other with our Global licensing. The best part of my job at Erve is that there is always a new challenge and you never know what will happen next!”
“I work closely with our customers to meet their requirements. I love detail and process, which is perfect for my role as I am responsible for managing the order lifecycle from initial placement, through pre-production, production and finally arranging the end delivery to our customers.” It’s great to see a product come to life and getting the samples is one of the favourite parts of my job, as well as seeing the product in the shop and knowing I had a part in its creation.”
“As a designer for Erve no two days are ever the same! My role is to provide customers with the latest designs, showcasing our knowledge of trends and the latest techniques. It’s been an incredible year of growth and I feel priviledged being part of this team whilst also working closely with the global business to leverage the experience and ideas of my global colleagues.”
“I’m one of the designers here at Erve. I design exciting ranges for babies all the way up to adults across a range of amazing licenses, which is continually growing. I love the variation of the design work and I love a challenge. Working alongside the global team is inspiring and at Erve we all put our heads together to generate new ideas and new ways of working. I love being involved in such a welcoming and proactive company. Even with my years of experence within the licensing industry, since joining Erve I have a ‘first job’ excitement that still hasn’t waned!”
