BENCH Clothing and Apparels
Bench (usually branded as “Bench.” with a full stop) is a British clothing brand that is sold worldwide, including in Europe, Canada, and Australia. The company was founded in Manchester, Britain, and specialises in streetwear.
The brand started in 1989 as a t-shirt brand, with designs influenced by BMX biking and skateboarding. Over the years, the brand expanded into other clothing garments.
The brand’s Manchester roots can be seen in the montage of the Manchester skyline which is used as a design on both their messenger bags and price tags.
Bench designs and markets its own products. While their t-shirts are their most popular product, Bench also manufactures jeans, jackets, hats, hooded tops, watches and jewellery. A common feature of Bench clothing is the conspicuous incorporation of the brand name – many t-shirts and jackets feature the word ‘Bench’ written in highly visible letters either across the chest or across the back of the collar.
Bench expanded into women’s wear in 1998. The range of jackets and tops had the same urban clothing style as the menswear.
In 2009 Bench became the official shirt sponsors of Morecambe Football Club. For the 09/10 season the Bench logo will feature on the front of the club’s final year at Christie Park commemorative home and away shirts.
BREAD MADE IN THE PHILIPPINES
Gardenia Bakeries Philippines, the country’s top breadmaker will nearly double total production capacity to four million loaves in one month after opening its new 600-million facility in Biñan, Laguna,
Company president and general manager Simplicio Umali Jr. said the company would also pursue its long-delayed expansion in Cebu in the second half of 2010.
He said the proposed Cebu factory would cater to the requirements of the Visayas and Mindanao markets.
The new state-of-the-art bread manufacturing plant in Laguna is capable of making 6,000 loaves of bread per hour, or nearly 150,000 a day, almost doubling its production capability.
“We now have a total capacity of 14,000 loaves per hour or four million loaves of bread in one month. We will be able to serve the entire Luzon and Metro Manila areas. At present, only the neighboring provinces and main cities are reached by our supply,” said Umali.
He said the company also wanted to expand to the provinces because of a huge market in those areas.
Gardenia has a 60-percent share of the market in Metro Manila for bread, and over 70 percent for loaves.
“Using the latest and high- technology equipment to make the breads practically untouched by human hands, we are now more than capable to continue providing safe and best quality products that many Filipinos can enjoy any time of the day,” he added.
