£600k+ investment

weaves our future.

S Dawes Weaving has invested over £600K on the latest machines and design software available.

2015 - we upgraded our design capability with the purchase of the Ned Graphics software system along with new Jacquard looms.

2016 - This was followed with further capital investment when we took delivery of a Karl Mayer GOM Sample Warping Machine.

This machine has given us the flexibility to offer clients many more options for colour woven warp designs without the prohibitive costs of outsourcing this service.

New Jacquard machine.
Tom Sheperd production manager.

2017 - saw another major investment and was in line with our commitment to invest in the latest technology.

We installed a brand new single end Jacquard machine which is a new innovative machine and one of only 3 in Europe.

After securing new business with a major new client for 2018 and to ensure we meet demand for their luxury quality fabrics: we invested in another Jacquard loom and made modifications to the mill layout including the installation of an extended mezzanine floor giving us more scope for extending our sample library and fabric inspection facilities.
