David Luke Ltd

Established in 1982, David Luke has gone from strength to strength in providing school wear and scout and guide wear to retailers across the UK. The company is noted for its pioneering approach. It has, for example, developed an ‘eco’ range, with the outer fabric made from 100% recycled plastic bottles, and has a long-standing commitment to fair trade.

From the company’s head office in Ardwick in Greater Manchester, Managing Director Kathryn Shuttleworth explains how a Protex solution from Datel has supported the company’s growth and helped in driving the efficiency of its business processes.
