We are a local business and are proud to be a part of our local business community.

"Here at Thomas Hardie Commercials Ltd, we have relied on Steve at Recognition Express to supply us with our branded Volvo marketing materials for more than 15 years.

From corporate workwear and special event clothing to business gifts and bespoke promotional products Recognition Express have always exceeded our expectations.

As a business partner the "can-do" attitude of Recognition Express frees up our time to concentrate on our core business activities."

Chris Schofield - Group Procurement Director

Recognition Express has been operating successfully in the branded merchandise and promotional products market since 1979 and is one of the most successful franchise and awards winning networks for this sector in the UK.

Recognition Express has built a strong customer base of clients over the years including such names as BMW, British Airways, Burger King, HSBC, ESSO, Holiday Inn, Jaguar, McDonalds, Sainsbury and Shell.

Our business, which operates throughout the West Yorkshire area, has a similarly broad range of customers extending from SME’s to over 300 schools to local public sector and major corporations.


The Recognition Express product range is extensive and varied.  From personalised name badges, business signage and decorated corporate clothing to promotional products, gifts, awards and banners, posters display material, Recognition Express provides marketing and promotional solutions across the entire range of corporate recognition.

Furthermore, every organisation is a potential customer for Recognition Express products whether it be a one person operation, a charity or a multi-national corporation.  Promotion of identity and recognition of a brand is a critical part of business strategy and companies not only seek to generate recognition on a corporate level, but they often seek to give it to their employees.

The market in the UK is huge with an estimated combined market value for promotional products, branded corporate clothing, signs, badges and awards in excess of £3bn per annum.

You will receive extensive training from the franchisor and in addition we will offer comprehensive hand-over support whilst you settle in, including detailed administrative and financial records.


We are proud to have built a very broad range of revenue streams and an excellent reputation.  The business is well organised, and we have excellent relationships with our customers. As such the new owner will be able to hit the ground immediately. The file structure, templates, models, equipment, customer database and documentation are included in the sale price with stock at valuation.
