Centre Stage Uniforms has been set up and owned by Martin Gernon, a business professional with a pedigree in textiles and overseas sourcing, as well as a lifelong player and supporter of brass bands.
“As far back as I can remember I have been involved in brass bands. Having played for and been Chairman of the world famous Fairey (Geneva) band I understand only too well the financial restraints that are on all bands at present.”
“Falling concert and commercial revenues combined with increasing rising costs make it difficult for many bands to make ends meet.”
“Uniforms are one of the biggest expenses to bands and this is where Centre Stage wants to help and make a huge impact. We want bands to lolok great withoutit costing the earth! Look good, play good!”
“My business background is in textiles and textile produtcion, particullary from the Far East where I have spent many years sourcing quality products. It seemed perfect sense to utilise my sourcing skills to fill a particular need in the Uk for low cost, high quality uniforms that are delievered on time time and correct.”
“ I have therefore set up our own production facility in Hong kong to service the uniform requirements of brass and instrumental bands, but at overseas pricing.”
“ The business model is correct – high qulaity fabrics and production, with a low cost base and the low overhead benefit of overseas production, combines with exception customer service and guaranteed lead times.”
“It wil be our pleasure, as well as honour to dress your band to the very highest standard and to the very best of our ability.
As such, I look forward to discussing your requirements with you and ensuring we deliver you fantastic new uniforms at a price that will make your treasuerer very happy!”
“With regards for your bands continued success.”
