Further investment for 2016
Following our £100,000 investment in new Jacquards and the upgrading of our design capabilities last year, 2016 sees a further capital investment of over £400,000. In April 2016, we took delivery of a Karl Mayer GOM Sample Warping machine. This is the latest state of the art equipment for producing sample warps and small production orders. It will give us the flexibility to offer our clients many more opportunities for colour woven warp designs without the prohibitive costs previously incurred by outsourcing this service.
Modifications to the mill layout including the installation of an extended mezzanine floor have also given us more scope for extending our sample library and fabric inspection facilities.
