We are creators. We are innovators. We are Unique!
Our story begins more than ten years ago when our founder Adrian Lichtman, a South African-based retail expert-founded The Unique Group in Canada.
Adrian worked for a major retailer in South Africa for over 30 years. Throughout his career, he noticed there was an enormous demand for quality fabric and labeling products, so he decided to open up a one-stop-shop for fashion retailers. He acted on this unfulfilled demand and created the company known today as The Unique Group. A place where brands can find quality packaging and labeling products all under one roof at a fair price.
While our headquarters are in Canada, The Unique Group is a global firm with offices and facilities across the globe. Our marketing office is in the UK, and our production facilities are in China, Turkey, India, Bangladesh and the UK. We utilize European technology and best practices when building our products overseas.
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 create packaging and labeling solutions that address environmental, social, ethical and corporate governance concerns.
