About the employer

Speedings Ltd was established in 1827 on the banks of the River Wear in Sunderland, Tyne and Wear, which makes the company the oldest manufacturing business in the City of Sunderland – a fact of which we are immensely proud. Speedings currently employ thirty five people which include twenty specialist ‘traditional’ sewing machinists. Our production process sees our sewing machinists making a product from start to finish – this system of manufacture creates a more rewarding sense of achievement for the machinist. It is certainly an advantage once you start to consider the quality aspect, as items can be directly related to a single person.
