Design & Manufacture
Dread specialise in producing garments that not only meet a client’s design brief but also surpass performance expectations. An in house design team with specific knowledge of production parameters are on hand to create stylish and functional merchandise collections.
Starting with scamps and progressing through computer generated visuals to a completed sample, the client can see the product develop and fine tune their requirements at any stage of the pre-production process.
In addition to its UK production, Dread also has manufacturing facilities in the Far East, allowing competitive pricing on larger volume orders. Investment in advanced printing systems at our Milton Keynes office allows T-shirt proofing and production in timescales hitherto considered impossible.
Whether manufacturing in the UK or overseas all finished product is subject to rigorous quality control at each stage of the manufacturing process.
Corporate clothing has long been a must for companies intent on presenting a professional image; it is now regarded by many as the final piece in the corporate PR jigsaw, the perfect tool to promote an event, image or brand. Dread has a range of clothing specifically developed for this market.

Do you need a company who can do more than produce a range of merchandise? Look no further. Dread specialise in providing a focused resource to exploit the benefits a fully integrated merchandise programme can provide.

In recent years many an envious glance has been cast towards the Dread merchandising units at race circuits in the UK, throughout Europe and the USA. Second best is not a considered option with Dread, where excellence is standard.
Few, if any, can match Dread’s pedigree in the motorsport industry. Experience gained over the years allows Dread to present a visual identity that enhances and reflects the brand image. Dread’s proactive approach and the constant pursuit of perfection have resulted in the development of garments which combine cutting edge fabrics with improved fit and combination branding techniques.
High performance designer gear with a reputation for style, functionality and comfort in the paddock and beyond. Dread’s status as an innovator, as a company to be trusted, as a manufacturer of quality items, continues to grow.
There is a long held misconception that promotional merchandise needs to be produced in hundreds and thousands with production lead-times running into months.
This myth is perpetuated by organisations lacking the capability to “think outside the box”.
Time to think again!
Dread’s sourcing team have the experience and tactical know how to deliver the right product at the right price – even when lead-times appear impossibly tight. Whether you need a dozen watches for an award ceremony, a themed gift to run in conjunction with a targeted promotion or 20,000 pens, Dread provides answers when others are still evaluating the question. Dread has more branding techniques at its disposal than most could imagine. Most importantly – Dread delivers!
Progressive and perceptive.Words that summarise Dread’s business ethos. Not just in how they provide client solutions, but their whole approach.
Mindful of everyone’s responsibility to future generations, Dread now package their garments in reusable and recyclable bags. It’s a small contribution, but one which, if followed, could make a significant difference.
For clients wishing to demonstrate their concern for the future yet still promote their organisation Dread have also sourced a range of promotional items made entirely from recycled products. Pens from car parts, mousemats from tyres, conference products from recycled leather. To borrow a line: “every little helps.”
Many will be aware that part of Dread’s continued success is due to their ongoing relationship with a number of suppliers worldwide. Each carefully selected to ensure competitive pricing, quality products and most importantly their attitude and treatment of their workforce.
