Our History

TOR BANNERS was established in 1975 originally as part of Handley Band Uniforms, after five years establishing its brand in 1980 TOR Banners was formed as a seperate company.

The company has for more than 30 years designed,embroidered and manufactured all their products in their Leeds factory , a proud tradition which continues to this day.As specialist manufacturers TOR have for many years been the leading supplier of banners not only in the United Kingdom but Europe too.

Our products have been seen adorning many famous stages throughout the world from the Albert Hall in London to the famous Sydney Opera House in Australia. In 1996 banners made by TOR notably appeared in the Iconic Channel 4/Miramax Film BRASSED OFF

After 10 years and firmly established in the UK TOR Banners products began to be sold in Norway,Switzerland,France,Belgium and Holland.Alongside our traditional music stand banners we began to introduce presentation banners and pennants which have proved to be very popular both in the music industry as award banners and tour souvenirs for  sporting and corportate organisations.

In 2004 TOR exported their first product to the USA where our products were very well received by Brass Bands,Colleges,Universites and the Salvation Army.

In 2007 TOR Banners were asked to provide stage and presentation banners to the North American Brass Band Association and following a succesful exhibition at their 2007 Championships a decision was made to establish TOR BANNERS USA.The following year due to demand TOR BANNERS CANADA was also established. Further development in North America has seen TOR working in partnership with Manhasset Music Stands,Americas leading supplier of Music Stands.Through this partnership and with the help of our Associates TOR Banners continues to develop our brand worldwide.

In 2011  TOR Banners has undergone a rebranding and seen the opening of a retail shop and showroom in Leeds and remains committed to manufacturing our products in the United Kingdom.
