Briers seeks North American expansion

Briers launched the Briers International Collection at this year's National Hardware Show at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Nevada.

The Briers trio of Jackie Eades (managing director), Liam Walsh (international sales manager) and Matt Jackson (UK national sales manager) exhibited for the first time at the show.


The collections being showcased were:

  • Historic Royal Palaces Baroque Collection
  • Briers Kids Range 
  • The Children's Gruffalo Collection
  • William Morris Collections 

Meanwhile, fellow gloves and footwear company Town & Country says rumours it has been bought are untrue.

However, another rumour set off by sales reps, that a Midlands-based garden centre chain will move to 10 centres by buying a Derbyshire garden centre by the end of May are believed to correct.
