This July we welcomed over 25 Mayors and Mayoresses from the North West into our factory at Hotter HQ. Arriving on a vintage bus, the group were introduced to CEO Sara Prowse who gave an insight into how Hotter became the UK’s biggest shoe manufacturer and how we make our shoes so comfortable.

They were then given a tour of our factory and warehouse and had a sneak peek behind the scenes of some of the processes we use to make a pair of shoes every 20 seconds and how efficiently the team in the warehouse pick and dispatch shoes to thousands of customers every day. We’d like to give a big thank you to The Mayor of West Lancashire – Councillor Liz Savage for organising the visit.
