Our Barnsley facility is the centre of excellence for formulated solutions in the Europe, Middle East, Africa and India region. Working to ISO 9001:2015 standards, the plant specialises in manufacturing ready-to-use products that combine the optimal polymeric binder chemistry with multiple functional additives resulting in superior physical and aesthetic performance, such as flame retardancy/fire safety, abrasion resistance, stretch recovery and environmental comfort.

Working closely with customers and major retail organisations, our products are used in the domestic, commercial and institutional sectors of upholstered furnishings and window blinds, technical textiles such as automotive, protective and industrial fabrics and high performance apparel.
