Family-run textiles manufacturer, Texfelt, has resumed manufacturing from its Yorkshire-based facility and is continuing to deliver product to a customer supplying the NHS and MOD following a series of successful contracts delivered during lockdown.
Prototyping and manufacturing specialist insulation components for temperature-controlled packaging for the NHS, Texfelt showed its tenacity with new product development and technical innovation at a time when other manufacturers had closed their doors. The manufacturer is now working on repeat orders.
Texfelt also developed a new and bespoke mattress component for the MOD from its SpringBond eco-engineered non-woven, which is made out of recycled plastic bottles. The manufacturer turned the order around within a week to meet strict and urgent requirements.
James Taylor, Managing Director at Texfelt, commented: “We’re thrilled to have re-started manufacturing and to have a healthy-looking order book – it’s testament to the way we have adapted over the last few months. We’re incredibly proud to have repeat orders from our new customers, especially those who supply the NHS and MOD, after turning around relatively complex and bespoke requests within a matter of days when we were initially approached.”
Texfelt’s SpringBond non-woven is fully recyclable at the end of its useable life. It contains no PU foam so there are no harmful VOCs (volatile organic compounds) meaning better air quality in its environments. It offers maximum performance with minimal environmental impact.
