Trans-Atlantic connections grow for Centre Stage

The trade routes to the North American market continue to grow for Centre Stage Uniforms.

  Centre Stage Uniforms has linked up with Nebraska Brass Band by providing uniforms and banners

Centre Stage Uniforms has continued to increase its trans-Atlantic business connections after successfully delivering a brand new set of uniforms and stand banners to the Nebraska Brass Band from Omaha in the eastern part of the American state.

North American market

It is the latest link made following Centre Stage working hard to develop its North American market under Managing Director Martin Gernon.

He told 4BR: "We have been working behind the scenes for the past few months with the North American Brass Band Association — a link that has been formalised with our recent ground breaking announcement.

That work has already paid off and we have received orders throughout this year, showing that our reputation for outstanding quality and service is worldwide."

Right choice

Nebraska Brass Band told 4BR that they gave a great deal of consideration to their choice of supplier, as Musical Director Glenn Greet remarked: "We took our time selecting our UK provider for our band uniforms. I'm happy to say that we made the right choice with Centre Stage.

Their communication, pricing, and quality of product are a credit to their business model. We will without question be using them again for future orders."
