Yorkshire-based European clothing manufacturer agrees deal at Thorne Park

A Yorkshire-based clothing manufacturer, which operates across Europe and boasts manufacturing partnerships as far east as Asia, has taken two units at Henry Boot Developments’ Thorne Park scheme in Doncaster.

Stuncroft Limited, currently based in Goole, has over 40 years’ experience in the manufacturing and supply of high quality men’s and ladies’ tailored garments. Clubclass Corporate Clothing, Europe’s leading supplier of tailored clothing for work from both stock and specific contracts, will make Thorne Park its home.

Stuncroft Limited has completed a deal to take units 2 and 3 on a freehold purchase basis for an undisclosed sum. The combined unit comprises a total of 27,060 sq.ft. and includes high specification first floor offices, two electric loading doors serving the unit, and 30 car parking spaces.

Vivienne Clements, Director at Henry Boot Developments, commented: “We are extremely pleased to announce the completion of the deal with Stuncroft. They are a fantastic addition to Thorne Park and we hope this will aid in the expansion of the company and improve operations across Europe due to the site’s excellent transport links.

We now have only two units available at Thorne Park comprising 18,740 and 30,581 sq.ft.”

Elizabeth Hay, Finance Director at Stuncroft Limited, commented: “The company have chosen to re-locate to Thorne Park due to the excellent facilities and locational offering. As our operations span Europe and the globe, it is essential we are located on a main arterial route with excellent access to three major motorways.

Thorne Park was the stand out choice when it came to meeting our requirements. It is the perfect home for both retail supply and storage for the £3m tailored garments we keep in stock . We believe the move will strengthen our position further as a leading manufacturer of garments to the biggest brands across the world.”

The Modern Slavery Act 2015 - Group Statement: View here

Henry Boot PLC and its Group Companies has, following the introduction of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 (the “Act”) implemented a number of measures which seek to bring about greater transparency and scrutiny into our various supply chains, in order to combat slavery and trafficking activities. Further to this, over the past year we have been reviewing the measures put in place and seeking to identify additional actions to strengthen our due diligence and transparency. The aim of the Act is in line with our own ‘Henry Boot Way’ Vision and Values, as updated in 2017, which include ‘Respect’, ‘Integrity’ and ‘Collaboration’, all of which are relevant to our approach in this regard.

We continue to keep under regular review our Human Trafficking and Slavery Statement (the ‘Statement’), setting out the activities undertaken to reduce the risk of slavery and trafficking activities being present within our business operations. These measures include the introduction of an Anti-Slavery Policy, due diligence requirements, and mandatory contract clauses seeking compliance by our supply chain with appropriate anti-slavery measures. Additional measures that have recently been put into place to increase knowledge and vigilance throughout our organisation and supply chain include posters and awareness cards across our sites.

We will continue to regularly work with our partners, contractors, suppliers and other stakeholders, as well as keeping industry best practice under review, to monitor our approach for effectiveness, and consider any changes or additional measures as appropriate.
