Executex Clothing factory was formerly located in the 1970’s at the old Hector Powes unit at High Blantyre Industrial Estate. It specialised in the manufacture of outer clothing, as illustrated.
Incorporated on 12th April 1951, the business was English based and is now dissolved. During the 1970’s the firm’s Social Club held fundraising events for various charities. In December 1978, they raised a whopping £557 to buy a special automatic buggy for a local child suffering from the disabling disease of spina bifida.
Workers at Executex included Iris Welch, who moved there after working in the Electrical Dept of the Co-op.
I don’t have a lot of notes about Executex, so if you worked there or can tell me more, please do let me know….
