Northampton shoe manufacturer secures support from HSBC UK

A 191-year old Northampton shoe manufacturer and exporter, which provides shoes for Prince Charles, has secured an additional facility from HSBC UK to provide support to its business during the Covid-19 pandemic.

A Royal Warrant holder, Tricker’s, whose Northampton factory closed for the first time in the company’s history in March, alongside its London Jermyn Street Store, is one of England’s longest established shoemakers and is known for its outstanding manufacturing quality and durability.

The additional facility from HSBC UK will support the company and its 96 colleagues during these uncertain times, ensuring that it remains in the best possible position to resume ‘business as usual’ when the factory reopens.

Martin Mason, Managing Director of Tricker’s, commented:

“We’re the oldest footwear factory in Northampton and it’s very important that industries like ours are supported during these challenging times so we can get back up and running as quickly as possible post Covid-19. We were extremely encouraged and pleased by the additional support we received from HSBC UK which will support our whole business.”

Nick Broome, Relationship Director, South Midlands Corporate Centre, HSBC UK, said:

“HSBC UK is committed to supporting its customers during this period of uncertainty, and we were delighted to be able to support Tricker’s with an additional facility during these times to help ensure they are in the best possible position to resume ‘business as usual’ when the restrictions are lifted.”
