The Wooltex mill can be found in a part of the UK that has been at the heart of textile manufacturing for centuries. It is a place where tradition and innovation go hand in hand.
Wooltex is one of Kvadrat’s longest standing partner suppliers and is a specialist in the production of natural wool textiles. Here, Richard Brook; Wooltex’s Technical Director, explains his company’s efforts to achieve ever-more efficient and sustainable production and the glories of working with nature’s own ‘wonder fibre’.
In what ways does a close relationship with Kvadrat benefit your business?
Having such a large customer allows us to run our business in a lean way; we have no need for large Sales and Marketing departments for example. We can concentrate our investments on Kvadrat requirements; the machinery we buy, people we hire and the training we invest in, can be focused specifically on Kvadrat’s needs. Also, Kvadrat business is not seasonal, which means we tend not to have peaks and troughs in our output. It is steady and consistent and therefore allows us to be efficient.
We’ve been working with Kvadrat for more than 20 years and we are happy that everyone shares the same goals and are working towards the same ends.
