Taylor Made Designs sets up in Holland and Poland. 

Taylor Made Designs (TMD) has for 30 years been based out of the South Coast, UK. Delivering uniform, workwear and branded merchandise to a significant base of loyal clients in the Superyacht, Hospitality and Leisure Sectors, and in more recent years, an expansion into the Cruise Line Sector.

‘Let’s face it, Brexit, and coming out of the European Union, has not been good for UK based businesses wanting to export into Europe,’ says Ed Taylor, Managing Director.

With an increasing requirement to supply new and existing clients across Europe, TMD has now set up Fiscal Representation in Holland, together with warehousing and logistical facilities in Berlicum, Holland and additional production capabilities in Lodz, close to Warsaw, Poland.

The move represents a significant opportunity for TMD to be able to provide its uniform management and consultancy services, supplying and manufacturing branded and unbranded uniform, workwear, gifts, and event giveaways to all sectors globally.

“Delivering into Europe, either via our 3PL partner in Berlicum, Netherlands, or directly through our additional production facility in Lodz, Poland, will remove any unwanted stresses and paperwork for our valuable clients – as though we were physically based in mainland Europe, having EU VAT status, which we now have.  This move allows us to deliver directly to our clients, without duties, and providing our client has a valid EU VAT number, without VAT also. A simple, smooth transition through Europe. Of course, we will also continue to deliver under T1 status and hold stock for our clients where necessary.“

Mr Taylor continues, ‘We recognise that most of our client base is here in the UK, however, especially since the pandemic, a lot of our international clients have called for us to set up a more streamlined European distribution process to facilitate multiple European requirements.  We have our eye on other 3PL facilities across the EU including France, Germany, Spain and Italy.

“It has been important for TMD to make this move in order to build on existing relationships and develop future partnerships with clients and operators.”
