ASAP are delighted, in partnership with John Lewis for Business to be offering a very unique opportunity for their members with a special networking opportunity on May 15th.

John Lewis who joined the association as an ASAP Business Partner in summer 2018, have arranged to open the doors to their UK soft furnishings manufacturing unit, Herbert Parkinson for the very first time.

ASAP members will be able to learn about their history, which began as a weaving mill in 1934 and was acquired by the John Lewis Partnership in 1953. Herbert Parkinson has grown to be the business it is today producing many of their own brand soft furnishings, bedding, made to order and bespoke products. Members will enjoy a tour of the factory and be able to speak to Partners about the products they proudly produce. They aim to be the soft furnishings supplier of choice to the John Lewis Partnership being recognised for quality, value and service. The launch of their Bespoke product and service proposition last year has been a fantastic addition to the uniqueness of the business.

Places for the event are strictly limited and we encourage all members to register their place this week.  Registration information can be found HERE and all event enquiries should be sent to Karen Taylor at
