A message to our customers

Things are changing day by day, minute by minute and we think it is important to keep you informed of our service levels during this time.

Following our update yesterday evening, it is clear that a large number of our customers are still able to keep working and many are making products for the NHS and Healthcare environments and continue to require fabric and other products. We want to reassure you:




Our sister company Redwood TTM in Skelmersdale is continuing to manufacture medical equipment and mattresses for the NHS and Healthcare requirements at the request of the Government. Please let us know if they can help you with any medical products.

Call us or alternatively Redwood TTM on 01695 553 830 or email:


We intend to review things on a daily basis in line with government guidelines and will keep you informed of any changes via our website and social media.

Thank you very much in advance for your support and co-operation. Our thoughts are with you all and we hope you and your families keep safe and well during this difficult period.


With best regards

John Atherton

Managing Director
