The retail company has an employee size of 50 people working assiduously to bring the hosiery service to customers’ doorsteps in a prompt fashion. That is why the Macclesfield brand enjoys thousands of positive reviews as it removes the gap in the market for a good online retailer that sells both men and women quality products of all sizes.
UK Tights was established on 6th September 2005 by a couple, Dawn and Jonathan Barber. When Dawn was pregnant with their daughter, she sold tights from her front room while on maternity to earn more money. She wanted a different way of making money without the high maintenance. Consequently, Jonathan her husband, a computer programmer proposed a small business. UK Tights was launched six weeks before her daughter was born and after two weeks the startup had already received six orders in a day. The orders kept rolling in as the company grew by 100% in the first two years. It had to move from the family’s residential area to a commercial premise. The couple’s sons were in the business earlier too. The company had 12 members of full-time staff dealing with over 60 brands of about 1,400 products and over 28,000 variations of products. The family business has been successful as the largest hosiery company in the world partly because of a well thorough market research conducted at its early stage on its competitors. The lapses and shortcomings of the competitors gave UK Tights a comparative advantage as it laid primacy on them. The couple has extended their network by creating Webshop Direct Group consisting of brands like UK Lingerie and UK Swimmer.
