Our history

Located in the heart of Yorkshire’s textile industry, Wooltex UK have been designers and manufacturers of textile fabrics since 1996. An independant, family owned business, we pride ourselves on excellent customer service, quality and innovation.

Our main sales focus is the supply of contract upholstery fabrics for office seating, public buildings and concert halls but we also supply fabrics used in the manufacture of window blinds. Most of our sales are exported for distribution within the EU and beyond.

The company has expanded rapidly since its inception and our range of manufacturing services has increased in line with this growth. For some years now Wooltex has carried out its own warping, weaving, mending and final inspection but from 2015/16 a significant investment programme in state of the art equipment we introduced a dyeing and finishing facility in 2016.

Our strong technical team combined with investment in the latest machine technology, enables us produce world class fabric designs quickly and efficiently. We continually research and develop new product areas and production methods to meet the needs of our customers. Staff training needs are continually reviewed and employee advancement within the organisation is actively encouraged.

It is our policy to use approved local suppliers wherever possible in the manufacture of our products and we insist products from external suppliers are made to the same exacting standards we set for ourselves. Our local approach ensures fast, high quality production and minimises costs, as well as reducing the impact of our carbon footprint.
