    [imgleft][/imgleft]TOR Banners – The International Evolution

    TOR Banners, the UK’s leading specialist manufacturer and embroiderer of music stand banners are pleased to be developing their business with bands in The Netherlands. Following their successful exhibition at the recent NABBA Championships in Louisville, Kentucky, they are now delighted to be presenting their services at The Netherlands based EuroBrass Drachten Music Festival in June and The Dutch Championships in November/December.

    As a prelude to developing their contact with the many European bands attending these events, they are also pleased to announce the appointment of Geert Bruinsma Muziek, based in Surhuisterveen, The Netherlands (Email: Telephone: (+31) (0)512 364140), as an agent for their products.

    Jon Handley of TOR Banners commented: “We were very impressed with the widespread reputation held by Geert Bruinsma Muziek and as a result, we are delighted that we have been able to form this business alliance between us. We look upon the agency appointment as an extremely positive move to ensure our services are easily accessible by the many bands that exist in The Netherlands. There will be an in-shop display of some of our products and so we believe this will demonstrate our own reputation for high quality products, forming a perfect parallel with Geert Bruinsma Muziek. We are really looking forward to the future development of our international markets and this significant appointment is indicative of our enthusiasm to offer our services across the banding world.”

    [imgleft][/imgleft] The recent decision to actively promote their services in The Netherlands is also being marked by their support of the forthcoming Eurobrass Drachten Music Festival on 15th and 16th June. TOR Banners will be exhibiting throughout the weekend and are proud to be providing the stage and presentation banners for the event itself. Visitors are welcome to discuss their requirements with the TOR Banners representatives or simply come and see for themselves why the business has become the UK’s leading supplier of banners and pennants.

    The end of the year then sees TOR Banners return for the Dutch Championships on 30th November - 1st December in Groningen. Once again, they will be exhibiting their impressive range of products during the course of the event and offering customers the opportunity to discuss in person their specific banner and pennant requirements.

    Jon Handley concludes: “By developing all these new dynamics for TOR Banners we are delighted to be able to access our international marketplaces more readily. These steps are extremely exciting for our business and, through the greater awareness, are ultimately of great benefit to our customers.”

    What is also strange is that you continue to post speculation that TOR Banners/Handley Uniforms is either going out of business or in some way on the verge of doing so. Given that you participated in this same discussion on a previous thread, seems interesting that you would seek out a thread from 2007 to post your take on the company once again.
    Your personal preference/association re: Fanfare North was communicated clearly in that discussion thread, not to infer that you have your own agenda or anything.

    Just find it curious that you seem so focused on that. One can only assume that comes out of a genuine concern about the effect of the current economy and its impact not only on businesses but also on brass bands throughout the country.
    Rest assured that TOR Banners and Handley Uniforms are just fine and thank you very much for your concern. The company has been a strong supporter of the brass band movement for three generations and takes pride in continuing to produce quality, british-made products.
