James Bremner & Co.

James Bremner & Co., Mantle Manufacturers, 28, Miller Street.ó

    A very important business in the wholesale mantle trade is carried on by Messrs. James Bremner & Co. The business is one that has not been in existence any great length of time, having been established in 1881. But there are very few firms that have developed such an enormous trade in a similar period.

    Messrs. Bremner & Co. occupy very spacious warehouses, &c., at 28, Miller Street, where they have been established since the business was originally formed. In the early part of 1887 it was found to be absolutely necessary to increase the accommodation afforded, and the premises were therefore enlarged to double their former size. They are now commodiously arranged in every department, and contain a very large and assorted stock of all descriptions of goods incidental to the firmís trade.

    About one hundred hands are employed, and these have been carefully selected from the most skilled and experienced. Both in regard to quality of material and style of construction the firm have gained a very valuable and widespread reputation for superiority, and have thus acquired a very extensive connection among the leading wholesale and retail houses in the trade.

    They manufacture all classes of ladiesí and childrenís mantles and jackets, and command a very large business over the whole of Scotland, the North of Ireland, and the Northern Counties of England. Great enterprise and ability have been shown in the management, as may be judged from the fact of the firm having so rapidly attained their present leading position.
