We have far reaching views:
Barrington International Limited was established in 1989 by Alan Holford-Walker. Originally the business was a marketing consultancy, representing overseas defence manufacturers selling to the UK MoD, Police, UK companies and individuals aiming to sell overseas. Previously Alan spent 7 years in the Army, 4 years in Defence Sales and 2 years in Defence Marketing & Research. In 1989, encouraged by a major Swedish Defence Company to represent them to the MoD, he saw the light and started on his own. He has never looked back.
Since 2000, the year of the foundation of COSATT (now closed), we have concentrated our efforts on selling safety and security products to the Police, NHS and Local Authorities, private nursing homes and of course individuals. We also represent a number of overseas companies.
The Customer Services team has been led in recent years by June Butchart, our Operations Director. June has worked in the NHS, rural retreat holidays and lastly many years in farm management, before joining us. She is always happy to talk to customers about product choice and sourcing of new products. We enjoy talking to clients and helping them to find solutions to their queries. Call, e-mail or order online – whichever suits you best.
Over the last 30 plus years we have been involved with the design & marketing of many diverse products – camouflage (£2.5m order to the MoD in 1992), clothing, gloves, footwear (thermal overboots to the Royal Marines), gloves, personal beacons, etc. It has been a lot of fun! For this reason you will find occasional products on our website that are “random”. If we like it, if we have designed it, or had a part in its design and if it is beautifully made, we would like to share it with you. Even if it is not a potential life saver.
