One of the pioneers on the island, for the manufacture of men and ladies’ ready made uniforms.
Yorkie Clothing was established as a private company in June 1966 by Mr Victor Calleja. A fully owned Maltese company, it is one of the pioneers on the island, for the manufacture of men and ladies’ ready made uniforms and work wear. Yorkie specialises in the creation of uniforms that give corporate image to clients from a broad spectrum of businesses. We offer the finest services to customers in various sectors including catering establishments and the governmental sector. We pride ourselves in the ability to meet specific needs of customers, by keeping a vast selection of materials in stock. Over the past four decades, we have built an an undisputed reputation for the best customer care, with an efficient off the shelf, or made to measure service and high quality products that are followed up by an unparalleled after sales service.
Yorkie is determined to remain the number one government school uniforms supplier and it’s for this reason that client opinion and satisfaction are of great importance to the company. Year after year material quality and garment measurements are improved to meet the clients demands, and expectations. Every year customer complaints are studied and the quality of garments and fabrics are carefully chosen in terms of their weight, colorfastness, durability and matching color scheme of each respective college. It is not an easy task to finally approve a product because of many variable factors. One of these factors is the quantity issue as Malta is a small market and our suppliers have to do extra effort to meet our minimum quantities, our rigid quality standards, colorfastness and specific color demands to meet the minimum order levels for styles, colors, and embroidery, of each respective college.
