About Brother 

Helping you fulfil your ambitions


As a member of the multinational Brother Group, Brother UK has 

been helping businesses work smarter for over 50 years

Our History

Originally founded over 100 years ago in Nagoya, Japan, Brother’s first European base was established in Ireland in 1958, at a time when we made a whole range of products, from typewriters to motorbikes!

In 1968, we took over the Jones Sewing Machine factory to make Manchester the new home of Brother UK. And we’re here to this day, still producing the sewing machines that first made us famous, as well as a range of class-leading office technologies and business solutions.


At your side, every step of the way

From our versatile range of printers, scanners, and label printers, to our web conferencing and other business solutions that help you personalise your technology to suit your business needs, Brother is always striving to offer customers even more. 

And over the course of the last 50 years, we’ve consistently led the way with new innovations: like the world's first high speed dot matrix printer in 1971, the world's thinnest self-contained mobile printer in 2004, and more recently the first desktop scanner with built-in wireless connectivity.
