Lovelocks & Timpson

Monday, 10 November 2014  |  Laura

This summer we were thrilled to have Lovelocks® trialled in 30 Timpson stores across the UK.

Even better, due to a phenomenally successful trial, the Lovelocks® have now been rolled out to all 1376 branches!

Here at Lovelocks® we are proud to be a family run company, and one that is supporting British business all the way- did you know that our "In Colour" Lovelocks® are manufactured and assembled entirely here in the UK? This is something that we are incredibly proud of, both from the perspective of their superior quality, and also because we know first hand just how important it is to support the businesses on our door step.

From an environmental perspective also, our "In Colour" Lovelocks® have ZERO airmiles!

The partners that we work with are carefully selected and the issue is not taken lightly- here are just some of the reasons why we love Timpson and are very proud of our relationship with them:

  • Timpson have a life-changing recruitment policy- they employ more prison leavers than any other company in the UK. They actually have a number of training workshops in prisons, and those who pass their skill tests working in the "shop" are offered a job on release. 16 Timpson stores are now managed by people recruited from prison. They are making a huge difference in these individuals lives, and also helping to reduce re-offending.
  • Chief Executive James Timpson was awarded an OBE in 2011 for recognition to his "Services to Training and Employment for Disadvantaged People"
  • With a distinctive business model, there is a great deal of autonomy given to the small teams working in individual stores. They are proud of their "upside down management" structure.
  • John Timpson's philosophy is that "If you treat people well, it is blindingly obvious that they will do a good job". They have been in the top 10 of the Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work For every time they have entered.

A family owned retail company, Timpson is doing it right and valuing the people that make it great. Their tag line "Great Service by Great People" is most certainly accurate, and we are very proud indeed to be working with them.
