Fort Vale operates businesses within the UK as well as subsidiaries in other countries. The products Fort Vale businesses manufacture and sell are sourced from a broad range of national and international suppliers. Many of those supplier relationships are sourced and managed by our purchasing team based at Simonstone in the U.K.


We undertake all reasonable and practical steps to ensure that our standards are being implemented throughout the businesses of our suppliers. We will assess any instances of non-compliance on a case-by-case basis and tailor remedial action appropriately.
