In addition to clothes, we produce and import shoes, jewellery, cosmetics and home textiles. The cornerstones of our operations are expertise, speed and flexibility. Our total revenue in 2014 was approximately 10 million euros.

Our family-owned company has its roots in Naantali in the year 1993 when worldly-wise Arne and Mirja Holmberg wanted to become a safe partner for their customers and in return bring high-quality, rightsized and affordable clothes available to consumers. This was the beginning of A&M Holmberg Oy and later Markkinointi Holmberg Oy established to support cosmetics, shoes and jewellery business. Today, A&M Holmberg and Markkinointi Holmberg are both part of Holmberg Group.

Responsibility

We monitor and develop constantly our operations in a socially responsible way. We follow laws and international norms and require our subcontractors to follow the same operational principles.

Supervision of Social Responsibility

We do not own factories but our products are manufactured mainly in Turkey, England, China and Bangladesh. We have selected as our partners factories and subcontractors that follow the same laws and international norms as we do.

We are a member of BSCI. BSCI or Business Social Compliance Initiative aims at promoting safe, healthy and ethically acceptable production conditions worldwide. The programme includes e.g. tours of inspection in the suppliers’ premises. Thanks to this, production operations have become more transparent and employees' work conditions ever better.

We are one of the three Finnish members of ACCORD in Bangladesh. ACCORD verifies occupational safety in production buildings, controls possible renovations of the buildings and trains and primes employees for safety at work.

Product Safety

We are responsible for the risk management of hazardous substancies by following the REACH regulation (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals) created by EU. In compliance with REACH any of our products or packages do not contain chemicals that are harmful for environment or humans and e.g. metal buttons or zips do not contain nickel, cadmium or other heavy metals.

We use environmentally friendly Superdry dehydrators in all shipments instead of general dehydrators containing formaldehyde.

Animal Rights

We have committed ourselves to take animal rights into account. Our imported cosmetic products have not been tested on animals. Every subcontractor must commit themselves to follow the rules and operational principles in compliance with the Code of Conduct which require ethical treatment of animals.
