David Howard's journey began in 1978, the original vision was to be a specialist shirt supplier to menswear retailers across the UK. Despite the dramatic changes in our industry throughout the years, the vision has not changed and neither have the David Howard values:

Integrity - Commitment - Creativity - Flexibility - Partnership

Having grown from four people in 1978 to over one hundred people worldwide now, we still retain a 'small company' ethos; staying fast on our feet and open to change so we can continue to lead the market and support our customers as their businesses evolve. We have both supplier and customer relationships that go back over 30 years, a fantastic achievement and genuine testament to the strength of our values.

The owners of the company are executive directors with numerous years of experience in our industry, enabling the company to overcome continuing challenges the industry brings
