As a family owned business for over 160 years, M Wright & Sons Limited possesses a wealth of history, expertise, development and investment in elastic and rigid narrow fabric.
M Wright & Sons Limited is located in Quorn Village in the heart of England; a site we have occupied since 1870, 10 years after our founding in the nearby city of Leicester.
Our heritage lies firmly within the woven narrow fabrics’ industry by initially manufacturing components of the footwear and corsetry trade. Our links with military products stem from this time.
Over the years, our market has developed to other areas such as Aerospace and Automotive, Sports, Medical, Marine industries to name but a few.
At M Wight & Sons Limited, we pride ourselves for being at the forefront of technical developments. For instance, some of the earliest productive needle weaving looms were developed here, leading to the massive efficiency gains that have been seen throughout this method of production.
As we have always been manufacturers of rigid narrow fabrics and elastic, we have extensive experience and knowledge in fabric properties and constructions which we relate to our customers.
We ensure that we are continuously at the cutting edge of technical developments. We actively invest in manufacturing plant and testing equipment to maintain our world-class standard. We have recently expanded our dyeing facilities by installing new machinery capable of the high temperature processes needed for applying dyes and finishes to polyester material.
