We have our own factory because we want to build a better supply chain. We are passionate about the production process, the people involved and simply creating world class quality functional products. By basing ourselves in central Europe close to the majority of our customers it helps us meet our sustainability goals, by reducing shipping and just as importantly avoiding the waste of over-production.

Located just outside of the historic city of Gdansk, the outerwear sewing factory was founded by Swedish entrepreneur Michael and his father in the late 80s. From the starting point, they focused on technical garments for the outdoor industry with clients including goverment functions such as military and police, all the way to internationally renowned outdoor and sports brands. Recently, their expertise earned the factory GORE-TEX Gold Level partnership.
At Henri-Lloyd, we believe not only in protecting you, but we constantly strive to minimise our impact on the planet too.
Having our own factory has a number of benefits.
1. Local production means less carbon footprint, 2. Ensure excellent and fair working conditions for our colleagues. 3. Confidence that we deliver world class quality standards. 4. Authentic – Who amongst our peers can say they manufacture the majority of their jackets in their own factory?
When you buy a jacket from us, the chances are it’s made by us.
