About West Suffolk Leisurewear

West Suffolk Leisurewear was formed in November 1997 by Nigel Thompson after recognising the ever increasing trend of corporate imaging, which was filtering down to the small businesses after being dominated by the larger corporate businesses.

Nigel decided there was definitely a business opportunity to target these smaller businesses including one man bands and so West Suffolk Leisurewear was started initially as a home run business. It was not long before it became necessary to move the business into industrial premises in Mildenhall which were shared with another company.

Following the acquisition of local Bury St Edmunds firm CatPrint in January 2000, West Suffolk Leisurewear’s capabilities expanded into the screen-printing industry including the addition of new clientele which included around 50 schools and colleges, of which the vast majority have become long-term customers with many more joining since. This business expansion required us to move into our own industrial premises in Mildenhall to enable us to increase the business’s already increasing capacity.

Since then we have continued to grow successfully and have developed our online presence to offer our services to a larger target audience through our new and improved Ecommerce websites.

2014 has been an exciting year for West Suffolk Leisurewear so far. January saw a brand new branding to bring WSL upto date, everyone so far has loved the new branding and we hope this will be something that will see us through the next 17 years!
