EXPANDING: Jan and Les run a successful family business.
HORNBLOWER EMBROIDERY, founded in 2004, is a family-run business owned by Jan and Les O’Hara. They moved the business in 2010 to its current, beautiful location at Alcudiamar, Pto. Alcudia’s busy marina to the north of Mallorca, and haven’t looked back.
The move allowed them to concentrate on the yacht and superyacht market, in terms of supplying and embroidering crew uniforms and bespoke bedlinen for those ‘crazy’ shaped berths. Additional customising and monogramming simplifies the ‘make-up’ process and ensures items are not mislaid at the laundry!
The move has ensured a substantial growth in these key areas and has allowed them to partner with leading suppliers such as SLAM and MUSTO for crew uniforms.
Closely linked to this sector is the supply and embroidery of fender covers, which help maintain and enhance the look of any size craft. Most of the covers you will see on the yachts and motor yachts in Alcudiamar have been supplied and branded by Hornblower, and they are now the leading supplier of fender covers in the north of Mallorca.
Some local businesses have also stretched Hornblower’s repertoire. Along with supplying embroidered work and leisure wear, from many leading brands, they have also branded large, bespoke point of sale items like parasols and awnings.
Working island-wide with no minimum order quantity on any item has proved very beneficial for clients both locally and in other areas on the island.
They have recently expanded into providing vinyl printing onto garments for those larger logo designs, and have enjoyed making ‘specials’ for a local youth football team, after having won their championship!
Another addition is personalised gifts by way of photographs on mugs, t-shirts, mobile phone covers, iPad covers, bags and purses, slate photo frames and so much more. All can be adorned with photos of your boat or loved ones – the perfect gift, especially for Christmas!
So today, there is a lot more to Hornblower Embroidery than just supplying uniforms, bedlinen and towels. Why not pop along or give them a call to discuss your requirements and mention this article to gain 10 per cent discount.
Hornblower Embroidery is located near to the marina office in the Alcudiamar Marina.
Hornblower Embroidery, Paseo Maritimo, 1, Alcudiamar Local 14b, Pto Alcudia, 07400, Mallorca.
