In 2015 Trutex will be 150 years old, having been established in Grindleton in 1865 as the Clitheroe Shirting Company.

As part of the celebrations for our 150th year we would like create a document detailing the history of the company, and we were hoping readers would help us with this.

Although I am personally not from the area, it is clear to me many people from the surrounding towns and

villiages have, at some point, had a connection to Trutex, either working for the company directly or knowing someone who has.

We would like these people to get in contact and give us as much information as they can about the history of the company.

Specifically it would be great to know past history on the following:

Owners of the business.

Key personnel and positions.

Information on factory locations and when these opened and closed.

The brands sold by the company.

Types of products.

Any marketing campaign in which the company was involved.

Of course any Trutex related photos or memorabilia people may have that they are willing to let us look at would be much appreciated.

People can send in their stories to memories@trutex.com or can put them on our Facebook or Twitter pages, both of which can be found be searching for TrutexLtd.

We would like to thank your readers very much in advance and are looking to find out a bit more about our history that we would like to share that with local people next year.

Matthew Easter,

managing director
