Fletcher Jones and Staff - the 6 basic objectives.

The name Fletcher Jones and Staff first came into use in 1947 with five basic objectives. A year or two later Fletcher added a sixth objective.

    1. To set an example in lifting the quality of Australian made clothing.
    2. To eliminate unnecessary expense of made-to-measure garments by developing a scientifically designed range of fractional fittings.
    3. To develop a more efficient means for distribution - using a standard monetary retail markup rather than a percentage and avoiding the use of percentages for the cost components in pricing - the elimination of the middle man and the avoidance of high cost credit selling by an inflexible 'cash only' policy.  
    4. Management by consultation.
    5. Staff co-operative ownership.  
    6. An effective after sales service on a non-profit basis.
