At the invitation of Mike Freer, the MP for Finchley and Golders Green, Representative Lin visited Pentland Group, a British global brand management company with important links to Taiwanese factories and distributors.
On arriving at the company’s headquarters in Finchley on 2 March, Representative Lin was introduced to Andy Long, the CEO of Pentland Brands. Mr Long provided the Representative with a tour of Pentland’s headquarters, giving an overview of the company’s history and its links with Taiwan.
With extensive global operations, Pentland Group works with Taiwanese distributors, guarantors, and licensees for a number of its brands, including Berghaus, Lacoste, and Speedo. While Pentland no longer operates factories in Taiwan, Taiwanese companies also own a number of its production centres across mainland China, Vietnam, and Cambodia.
