Global office technology manufacturer Brother is a well-established international business with a diverse product portfolio that includes printers, multifunction machines, electronic labelling products and fax machines.
The business established its current Audenshaw home in 1968 and is one of Japan’s largest and most well known manufacturing businesses. Housing both its European Head Office and UK sales company on one large site in Tameside, it’s been a major employer in the area for more than 40 years and has witnessed dramatic change in the regional economy.
UK sales and marketing director, Phil Jones, the company would be nothing without its staff:
“Our location has, over the years, given us access to an incredibly dedicated workforce. We try to provide a unique working environment and this can be borne out with the average length of service for staff being around eight to ten years. There’s an endless source of talent in the Greater Manchester area and this is one of the reasons that’s enabled us to keep pushing forward as a company, making us one of the top sellers in most of the categories we operate in.”
