Our Facilities

We have two production units in the UK, in Nottingham and Preston which offer a wide range of manufacturing capabilities.

Preston

Our Preston site was refitted in 2013, making it one of the most modern ribbon dye plants in the UK, whilst still retaining its weaving capability.

Nottingham

The Nottingham site is home to the latest in slitting machinery, ultrasonic fabric welding and cutting machinery as well as cutting edge IT and environmental control systems. Our warehouse, collation, final inspection and despatch areas are able to meet stringent BRC audit standards as well as support the efficient processing of goods.

Nottingham is also equipped with the apparatus and technology to allow us to draw up technical data sheets for all products, as well as to test production samples against approved standards. We have close working relationships with independent test houses who provide a wide range of tests against additional required standards.

Hong Kong

Cole Fabric’s office in the Far East is located in the China Best International Centre in Kwai Chung, Hong Kong. This is linked to a large warehouse that not only carries significant stock for immediate distribution, but also allows us to consolidate shipments for despatch. They also have the capacity to monitor our Far East sites to ensure we meet the technical and quality standards set for production. They also inspect, test and control shipments.

Our overseas Joint Venture Manufacturing Units are fully supported from both from the U.K. and Hong Kong. This not only incorporates financial and equipment support but also co-ordinated product Research & Development.  Quality systems, manufacturing procedures and production management processes are all agreed and implemented.
