Halbro: a family run business established in 1919.
Formed following a conversation between two friends; one a coal merchant (Hallet), the other a sports retailer (Broughton); who was explaining how difficult it was to obtain quality rugby clothing.
The result was the formation of Halbro Textile Co Ltd in Wigan, a town of coal mining and textile fabrication. Steeped in Rugby history it bred hard men and a feared rugby team.
Hallet and Broughton realised from the start that it was the Customers' absolute confidence in their product that was the name of the game and the Halbro reputation for quality grew as quickly and soundly as the company itself.
In 1924 Broughton left the company allowing Hallet to continue until he passed away in the 1950's. Eventually Halbro was bought in 1961 by the Moores family who integrated a forward thinking production team to constantly expand on quality and design, keeping the Company's position as a market leader in performance sportswear up to present times.
Although Halbro are famous for their jerseys and shorts they also have a large range of training and weather protection gear. In fact, the Company's open attitude to Customer needs means they can supply any garment you are likely to need for your sports.
From humble beginnings in 1919 Halbro still hold firm to the traditional values brought to them by Hallet and Broughton: personal service, quality assurance and aftercare. Halbro are proud their products are worn by many sports clubs, schools, colleges and Universities and is supplied with confidence as they believe it is the best.
