UK-Based Textiles Manufacturer

We are Bronte Glen Ltd, a UK-based textile manufacturer and processing services provider since 1985.

We have been passionate about textiles and processing machines since starting out in the wool market and have since expanded into a complete range of technical textile processing services.

We have the capabilities to process both large and small quantities of fibre, either provided by the customer or which we can source from our own suppliers.

Using our knowledge and experience of machines and fibres, we can undertake a bespoke processing service to fit your or your end user's requirements.

From traditional carding machines from the 1950s to up-to-date programmable machines built in the last 5 years, whatever your processing needs, we can advise, sample, and supply on demand.

The Mill
