Director, Price & Buckland UK Ltd.

I take great pride in being part of a family business that is fast approaching its 60th anniversary. The business has been through many changes since it was established by our father in 1959 and we continue to evolve and change in response to our customers and to the opportunities offered by new technology.

Together with my brother, Anthony and long standing colleague, Naveen, we care passionately about what we do and together with all colleagues from across the business, we’re very proud to be a truly global schoolwear supplier. From our new manufacturing base here in India, we are now distributing uniforms to children in Europe, India, the UAE as well as Canada. We believe in always putting the customer first and we work tirelessly to manufacture and supply high quality garments, that are value for money and supported by a service that is second to none. This ambition is only made possible by working with an amazing group of dedicated people who share the same ambition and belief.
