Report summary

A significant technical textile industry has emerged in the UK in recent decades. In particular, a number of small and medium-size enterprises (SMEs) are making a significant contribution to the UK technical textile industry, and a number of companies are thriving in the manufacture of nonwovens, and the production of woven and knitted fabrics for composites and industrial applications.

The success of these SMEs has been due largely to their ability to identify niche markets and applications for their products, and their resilience to competition from abroad.

This report discusses the operations and markets of the following UK SMEs and other organisations: Amber Composites/TenCate Advanced Composites, Andrew Industries, Anglo Recycling Technology, Baltex, BFF, Composites Evolution, Composites UK, Cosmotec, Cowens, Don & Low, EcoTechnilin, ELG Carbon Fibre, Formax, Fybagrate, GEOfabrics, James Dewhurst, John Cotton, National Composites Centre (NCC), Parkhill Textiles, Playrite, Rawson, Robinson Healthcare, Scott & Fyfe, Sigmatex, Technical Absorbents, the Nonwovens Innovation & Research Institute (NIRI) and the Nonwovens Network.
