Family experience in manufacturing
Established in 1840, the Dennys Brands has grown over the last 173 years. From a single shop in London’s Soho making and selling garments for the local restaurant and hotel trade, we now supply the hospitality industry worldwide, with 15% of our business being exported to Europe and the Middle East and Australia.
As a result of our technical capability and manufacturing experience, we have won many major contracts over the years. As sole supplier of chefswear to HM Armed Forces we brought our technical know how to the front line and we also supply the majority of UK catering students with our clothing brands.
AFD chefswear range
The AFD range uses cutting-edge fabric to keep you smart, cool and comfortable - whatever work throws at you. Lightweight and fashionable, they work as hard as you do. Easy wash at the end of your shift, they're ready to wear so you look as sharp tomorrow as you did today. But you've got better things to do - so make sure your have plenty of spares!
AFD chef products contain high tech ADVANSA Thermo0CoolTM panels for ultimate comfort and style. For periods of high activity: Thermo0CoolTM evaporates moisture faster. The advanced fibres with their multi-channel surface move moisture quickly away from the skin. For periods of low activity: the hollow voids in Thermo0CoolTM protect the wearer from temperature change and prevents post activity chill.
As our business grew and UK production became less competitive, we were one of the first manufacturers in our industry to find manufacturing partners abroad. Building on our own technical expertise and knowledge of running four UK factories, we have built excellent working relationships with family-owned factories in China, Pakistan and Portugal.
Our ethical manufacturing criteria is a prerequisite and all factories conform to the highest quality standards with great attention to detail to give our customers the best and most consistent quality of garments available anywhere.
