Trutex - a Family Friendly company
This is what Trutex had to say about the Mumsnet Family Friendly programme:
As the UK's leading Schoolwear only supplier, Trutex is 100% focused on giving parents great value and excellent quality uniforms that are made to last. With over 145 years experience in the industry we have come to understand the daily pressures children put on their clothes and this is reflected in the designs and fabrics we use in every Trutex garment.
Although clothing can often look similar in the packaging or on the hanger, in reality there can be huge differences in construction and quality, which quickly become apparent once purchased. Consequently, we put a great deal of emphasis on specifying and sourcing superior fabrics, and only work with ethical factories that can achieve our high manufacturing standards. All new products then go through a rigorous development process to attain our 'Trutex Quality Seal'. Furthermore, all Trutex garments are thoroughly tested for stability, strength and colour fastness, to ensure they continue to perform as they should wash after wash.
As a 'one-stop' school shop for all your uniform needs, we work closely with our nationwide network of retailers to ensure parents can buy our Schoolwear 365 days of the year. We also make and encourage our retailers to stock a wider range of sizes and style options, as we know that children today like choice and equally that they are not all the same size and shape.
Aside from our customers, we are committed to making Trutex an enjoyable place to work for all of our employees and to accommodating their individual needs as far as possible.
We are really excited about being part of the Mumsnet Family Friendly programme and to working with Mumsnetters to find out what you would like to see from us in the future. If you have any feedback we'd really like to know!
