About us

With a strong and reliable manufacturing culture, we pride ourselves on being an effective design, development and garment production partner across multiple products.

Ed Walters was established in Ludlow in 1957. The company grew from strength to strength, eventually operating 13 manufacturing units in the 1980’s in the local area, employing hundreds of people.

Although the demise of the UK clothing industry in the 1980’s and 1990’s saw the gradual closure of many UK factories, the business responded to the increased pressure from overseas imports by establishing a successful offshore production division in Eastern Europe. 

Our global manufacturing connections continue to be the backbone of the business as it is today.

After being one of the pioneers sourcing from Bangladesh in the early 90’s, we have continued to expand our capacities and product base within the country. We see ourselves as specialists waiting to help you with your sourcing and manufacturing needs within Bangladesh. We build strong and lasting key relationships with the factories we partner with allowing the retailer to benefit from the investment we've already put in.

Today we’re proud to be working with a number of key retail partners offering high-quality formal wear, casual wear and outerwear for men, women and children as well as school uniform.
