Our manufacturing plant
We are proud to house our manufacturing operation (which is over 5000m2 in size) in the stunning coastal city of Port Elizabeth, South Africa. Our location means that we are perfectly situated to serve the needs of our clients by having easy access to all major transportation and export routes.
We are proud to offer diversity in our range of manufacturing capabilities – manufacturing superior webbing ranging from 5mm to 320mm in width. We utilise a number of high-speed needle looms in our facility which enable us to customise designs and develop new products for our clients. Our factory is fully staffed and has the ability to run production lines 24 hours a day, 7 days a week when required.
We have a wide range of manufacturing and finishing capabilities, which include various weave types, on-site dyeing, specialised finishes, printing and cut-to-length services.
Our on-site dyeing capabilities utilise European continuous dyeing equipment for consistent and cost-effective colouring and production.
We can further improve the safety of our clients’ orders by applying specialises finishes – including flamed retardant, anti-static, stiffening agents, Teflon coating and water- and mould-resistant finishes.
