LMB Textiles sort and recycle old clothing. They have been working with prisons since 1995. Ross Barry, Business Development Manager explains:
“It’s allowed us to continue manufacturing in the UK, which I don’t think otherwise would’ve been possible. Most of our competitors moved to Eastern Europe about 10 years ago. Using prison workshops has helped LMB to expand and develop our business. It has allowed us to continue to work in the UK and given us extra capacity and the ability to expand quite quickly and easily should we need it.
LMB has expanded its business to four establishments, with about 150 prisoners working for them. ONE3ONE has worked closely with them to ensure the physical environment of each workshop is tailored to their business needs and that we can adapt as their business needs have grown.
