We have never had any problems with R W Freight, we phone & make a booking, you collect & the exports run smoothly! We ask you to quote our collection references when making a collection and you do, sometimes we book quite late in the week and your staff are very friendly & polite and do everthing they can to get our orders away in the same week. We have never rec'd any complaints from our warehouse saying you have not turned up to collect our goods. Very good indeed!

British umbrella exports always in season

Tags:

The UK’s oldest umbrella maker is increasing its exports on to the traditional markets as well as emerging economies. Last year exports overtook domestic sales for the first time; 54% of orders came from abroad.

“In Russia and China the new middle classes want to buy traditional, well-made British products.”says company owner Ray Garett. The company also exports to the USA, Australia, and Europe.

Despite the financial crisis, the company has continued to experience year-on-year sales growth. Their trade is not seasonal, because it is always raining somewhere in the world. In Japan, their umbrellas are used in rainy weather and also as parasols in sunny weather.
