It all began when Mr Jones and friends in Dura Cables started a rugby team. He needed training shirts, and took a chance by spending £1,000 on a batch. After successfully selling them off to his team, he decided he wanted to make more of this venture.
Meanwhile Paul, his son, started Picton Printing, specialising in Embroidery, Screen Printing and Heat Pressing in Trostre, Llanelli, which grew from strength to strength. In 2001, both Father and Son amalgamated, with two separate units in Llanelli Workshops.
The business currently employs sixteen staff and has just hit an annual turnover of £1m. Until seven years ago, the road to success was rocky, but then things "really took off".
What started off as selling rugby shirts out of the boot of a car, has grown to such an extent that they have materialised their plans of bringing together a �1m purpose-built factory at Dafen Industrial Estate from where they now operate.
Many clothing companies have their manufacturing operations in the Far East, but the small number of shirts ordered by each club means that it is more cost and time effective to make them locally, ensuring the highest quality standards.
We manufacture for major Global brands, like Kooga, and supply from small local teams to large international teams.
