We are creators. We are innovators. We are Unique!
Our story began when company founder Adrian Lichtman, a South African-based retail expert arrived in Canada in 1989 and shortly after established the A-Five Group in 1990, which later went on to become The Unique Group in 2010.
Having worked for a major retailer in South Africa for over 10 years, Adrian saw an enormous demand for soft quality dyed label products. This realization prompted his decision to act on this unfulfilled market need and hence the company known today as The Unique Group was created, a place where brands can source quality labelling and packaging products all under one roof, at competitive prices. With headquarters in Canada, The Unique Group is a global operation with offices and facilities located across the globe. Our production facilities are spread across China, Turkey, India, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and the UK where we also have our Marketing team. We are proud to utilize the latest European technologies and best practices when building our products.
Sustainability is a guiding principle for our organization. We recognize how the fashion industry affects the environment and we are taking steps to minimize our carbon footprint in tangible ways. In partnership with our clients, vendors and business partners, we provide labelling and packaging solutions that responsibly address environmental, social, ethical and corporate governance concerns.
