SPONSOR - Pentland Group


Pentland Group plc was founded in the early 1930s in Liverpool, England. It was then called the Liverpool Shoe Company because it dealt purely in shoes; first a wholesale shoe business, then expanding into a manufacturing business.

Pentland was one of the first companies to manufacture from Asia, forming a division in Hong Kong in the early 1960s. In 1981 Pentland purchased the majority share of a tiny US company called Reebok. After a 10-year period of growth, Reebok was sold. In the 1990s Pentland bought brands and now proudly has a portfolio of some of the greatest international sports, outdoor and fashion brands globally.

Pentland brands include Berghaus, Boxfresh, Ellesse, Hunter, Mitre, Kickers, Red or Dead and Speedo among others.
