June 2017 sees further investment by S Dawes Weaving. We have acquired a brand new Bonas single end jacquard machine, this new innovative Jacquard machine is one of only three in Europe.
This investment forms part of our capital investment of over 80K this year, and continues our commitment to invest in the latest technology which will enable us to maximise our productivity, design capability and efficiency. Two major new clients are working with us and are keen to develop new ranges of fabrics in the UK. With this in mind, a further Jacquard machine has been purchased and is due for delivery in September 2017, this again will expand our capability and allow us to produce more niche market high value fabrics.
Two new members of staff have been appointed to strengthen our busy planning and design team. Our clients are looking forward to working with us on some innovative and inspiring new designs using some of the latest developments in yarn technology, including the weaving of expensive fibres such as silk, 100% cashmere, and machine washable super soft wools plus many more of the world’s finest luxury fibres. The two new jacquard machines will be invaluable in helping us to create some amazing new fabrics for the 2018/19 collections.
