London, UK, 10 January 2022
Erve Group today announced the official launch of a new UK-based company, Erve UK & Ireland, bringing over 35 years of licence and brand experience directly to the UK and Ireland. The company offers high-quality licensed and branded fashion and apparel to UK and Irish consumers of all ages in the following categories: daywear, nightwear, underwear, socks/hosiery, swimwear and accessories.
“We have been servicing the UK & Ireland apparel markets for many years through our pan-European retail partners. Now is the time to invest in a permanent and long-term presence in these key markets,” said Martijn van der Erve, Erve Group’s chief executive officer. “We are financially strong and a reliable strategic partner in an ever-changing and volatile global economy. Our long-term focus, prudent approach, and global reach have allowed us to grow and invest year after year.”
Erve UK & Ireland's core business is designing and producing high-quality fashion apparel and accessories with love, specifically for the UK & Ireland consumer. They offer year-round, seasonal, and promotional products designed to be worn throughout the end consumer’s entire day: getting up, going to school or work, recreational activities, going swimming or doing sports, and dressing for bed again. With a highly skilled global design team (based in eight countries, including the UK), with robust licence and brand knowledge, and access to closely controlled production facilities around the world, the entire process, from concept to production, packaging, and delivery is in very experienced hands from day one. In addition to licensed and branded apparel and accessories, the company also produces private label apparel for large retailers.
Tom Rossi, managing director said, “Our mission at Erve UK & Ireland is to increase value without compromise. Increase retailer value through maximising their margins and volumes with high-quality products from reliable sources, and brand owner value through improved market coverage in line with their brand and business expectations. Our team has a vast amount of hands-on experience in the UK & Ireland apparel markets and a deep knowledge of the retail sector and end consumer, having held senior roles at market-leading organisations as brand owners, licensees and suppliers with a strong UK retail foothold.”
