Completion of £1.5 investment in new looms
A programme of investment in new looms was completed in September 2011. The 26 Sulzer G6500 rapier looms allow an increase of 15% in the Mill’s capacity. With increased sales projected for this year the looms have the potential to weave 1.25 million metres.
Alfred Brown joins Campaign for Wool
We are delighted to be part of and support The Campaign for Wool. This campaign was launched by HRH The Prince of Wales in January 2010 and seeks to inspire the public’s enthusiasm and awareness of products made with wool. We join many of the UK’s best known retailers in the campaign, as well as manufacturers and members of the farming industry in this dynamic push to re-unite the public with the unique properties of wool. This year the campaign is set to involve students and universities. Wool School 2012 is collaboration between Campaign for Wool partner retailers and fashion universities.
