The History of Bryer Manufacturing
Bryer Manufacturing was first established in the shoe industry and was founded in 1965. In the early days, Bryer Manufacturing, owned by Graham Bryer, employed close to 200 employees. Bryer started off in Caledonia, in the 60s and Bryer planted their roots there for over 20 years.
Graham Bryer had started with Bryco and when his father passed on he was given Jack Bryer & Co, Graham also had ties with David Barry and was able to amalgamate all 3 companies into one.
Due to Bryer Manufacturing’s diversification, they were able to move into a bright future, being one of the only garment manufacturing companies that offered a full line of services.
In the 70s, Bryer Manufacturing followed the trends and started heat sealing, as this fad took over in the late 70s and early 80s they had heat sealed thousands of kitchen chairs.
