About our operations
Michael Sehgal & Sons Ltd was established over 30 years ago under the discerning eye of Founder and Mentor Mr Michael Sehgal MBE.
Mr Sehgal was a keen philanthropist and Rotarian, and during his lifetime, he was a Patron to and Supporter of many local causes. He was passionate about education and established the Michael Sehgal Charitable Trust in order to provide further education scholarships to students with little or no means. As a businessman, he was absolutely committed to supplying the best quality, bespoke school uniforms at affordable, value for money prices.
The next generation continue to adhere to these founding principles and strive to provide distinctive, high quality uniforms, faster and more economically than ever. The result of working closely with schools, is to achieve aspirational uniforms and PE kits.
During the Covid crisis the Michael Sehgal Charitable Trust has been making regular food donations to the West End Food Bank with help of Asda. This includes many every day essential, non-perishable, items such as tinned foods, pasta, cereals, rice, and UHT milk.
We recognise that as this crisis continues, there are an increasing number of people within our local community, who are struggling to provide food for their families. As a local business, we feel that it is our responsibility to support these communities as best we can.
How we work
Our core team members have been with us for over 30 years and have amassed a wealth of experience which makes them well equipped to deal with the year-round demands of uniform supply. We recognise that every School is individual and requires a tailored solution to satisfy the needs of all its stakeholders. We pride ourselves in providing a service which is both reliable & professional; and which is specifically tailored to the school’s requirements.
Customer satisfaction takes the highest priority, as our testimonials clearly demonstrate. Once we accept a School project, we are committed to delivering on all levels, exceeding school and parent expectations at every stage and establishing an enduring partnership between ourselves and the communities which we serve.
We offer a wide range of delivery options to relieve schools entirely, of the administrative and financial burdens of school wear supply. This includes the following service platforms:
- Wholesale supply direct to schools;
- Online supply via our E-commerce website (with Secure Parent and School Logins for online ordering);
- School supply, Via our POPUPSCHOOLSHOP
- Telephone & Mail order supply; and
- Local supply, via our School uniform shop
High quality, value for money, reliability and professionalism are standards adhered to not only by our team, they are shared by our business partners in the UK and Overseas.
Our long established relations with key producers in the industry ensure continuity of quality standards, adherance to production schedules and the best value for money for our customers.
We also closely monitor our suppliers’ factory accreditation to ensure that stringent ethical and trading policies are applied in the production of our school wear, giving parents and schools peace of mind.
Investment in Stock
Our investment in stock 365 days a year, ensures responsiveness to demand and stock continuity on all our core products; this gives our customers the much-needed reassurance that products will be on the shelf when they are required.
Operations across the world
Many of our garments are produced especially for us by our partners in the UK and abroad providing us with ultimate design flexibility and customisation. For our customers, this means we are able to add bespoke touches including cording, braiding, special trims and linings, resulting in a unique and distinctive final product.
At Michael Sehgal & Sons our aim is to make the customers’ experience as comfortable and easy as possible and in this endeavour we, actively embrace diversity.
Our newly rebuilt store is inclusively designed and promotes accessibility throughout. We belief this is a standard and not a luxury and to take this to the next level, we have taken the decision to invest in Power Operated Doors (POD), with touch technology, which as far as we are concerned, is another step in the right direction. This will be a great addition to the wheelchair access, wider changing rooms and lower counters which we have already, in store.
Did you know that we also have multi-lingual staff in our store? Our staff are able to converse with parents and students in Urdu, Bengali, Hindi, and Punjabi as well as English which may of course, be extremely beneficial for students of ethnic origin.
We continue to pursue our aim to lead with innovative improvements in the provision of school wear and we will of course keep you updated of further developments in this area.
"In short, we take care of absolutely everything from fittings to distribution, freeing up school staff to focus on what's really important".
