We are a family businessbased in the beautiful small town of Tillicoultry in Clackmannanshire, Scotland, which is centrally based between Glasgow and Edinburgh. GRB Gloves Ltd was established in 1997 manufacturing 7 and 13 gauge knitted gloves on Shima Seiki machines.
Since then, we have produced knitted gloves for the retail and industrial sector with clientele from a variety of backgrounds including high street chains, Ministry Of Defence and industrial clothing suppliers. Our key strength is always being flexible as we can source yarns and knit to any required specification.
We are family
Our Father (Gavin) and sons (Douglas & David) business has gone from strength to strength over the last 20 plus years and we are looking forward to the prosperous future.
The following section is about our family plus our other esteemed employees.
Gavin Bernard (Dad)
Gavin started up the business back in 1997, when he identified a gap in the market for quality gloves that were manufactured in the UK. He has an operational role as well as a management role by looking after knitting production, product development, employee supervision and material purchasing. In his spare time, he enjoys cycling along the bottom of the Ochil hills and spending time with his 2 grandchildren.
Douglas Bernard (Son)
Douglas is Gavin’s oldest son and his role within the business is in the organisational and administration side of things. He works in the office dealing with the online sales, logistics and general admin. In his spare time, he enjoys going to watch the football and spending as much time with his son as possible.
David Bernard (Son)
David is Gavin’s younger son and his position within the business is an operational role. He deals with quality control of the gloves, production planning and management and factory supervision. In his spare time, he enjoys going to concerts and spending time with his daughter.
Margaret has been with the company for 7 years and is an essential part of the business. She manages the sewing side of the production of the gloves and assists with the quality control. If they are not up to standard, Margaret is on the case! In her spare time, she enjoys holidays and spending time with her grandchildren.
As a small family company, we are all involved in the development of new products, the production process including the knitting stage all the way to the packing and dispatch of the goods. We pride ourselves on a quality product and are always striving for excellence in our market.
