UK: Moorbrook Textiles signs license deal with Daks
Scottish fabric firm Moorbrook Textiles has signed a GBP600,000 (US$950,000) license agreement with UK fashion brand Daks.
As part of the three-year deal, Moorbrook Textiles will supply custom-made scarves under the Daks label, produced at its manufacturing plants in Ayr and Peebles.
The company said it is looking to recruit six full-time staff at its Peebles site over the next six months. It is also introducing an apprentice employment programme, taking on four apprentices at both sites.
"Our first apprentice has started at our Ayr site and we're excited about providing the opportunity to nurture the talents of young people in Scotland who want to develop skills within the textiles manufacturing industry," said Ian Laird, managing director of Moorbrook Textiles.
The Moorbrook Textiles Group comprises cashmere manufacturer Alex Begg & Co, textile manufacturer Robert Noble and Replin Fabrics. The company has seen sales grow 21% over the past year.
