FOUNDED IN 1985
From lightweight webbing and technical fibres through to industrial webbing with the highest breaking strengths, we are able to produce narrow fabrics and technical textiles to meet all of our customers’ needs, whatever their industry.
Our research and development staff can offer expert advice on product innovation and the use of webbing in numerous applications to meet all customer requirements.
All webbing and technical narrow fabrics are manufactured in our 55,000 square foot facility in the UK. Our manufacturing process utilises fifty weaving looms, four warping machines, and four dye machines with computer controlled colour matching technology.
Ribbons utilises the highest quality yarns and fibres to manufacture our products. In addition to Polyester and Nylon webbings, we also have the capability to manufacture technical products using Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE) and aramid fibres, often manufactured under the brand names of Dyneema® and Kevlar®.
We recognise that safety, strength and durability is key in the development of all of our products and manufacture to strict quality assurance standards and industry specific requirements.
Our focus on manufacturing high quality products to exacting customer specifications has established Ribbons as a leading supplier of webbing and technical narrow fabrics. Our loyal customer base across a wide variety of sectors and industries is testament to the quality of our webbing products and our ability to sustain long lasting relationships with our customers.
Ribbons has a highly skilled and experienced workforce. Coupled with a high priority on customer relationships, Ribbons are able to offer high quality products with great customer service at competitive prices
At Ribbons we are mindful of the impact of business on communities and the environment. Within our manufacturing processes we aim for minimal waste of our raw materials. Our teams’ skill in production processes and focus on quality in all areas of our manufacturing reduces waste and minimises our impact upon the environment.
We are also proud to support good causes within communities at both a local and global level.
Our webbing was recently donated to Friends of Rwandan Rugby, a local charity that seeks to introduce the sport of rugby to children in Rwanda. This initiative aims to encourage the growth of rugby as a sport whilst encouraging healthy lifestyles for children in Rwanda; promoting and developing the sports ethos of fair play, respect, friendship and of course, fun.
Our webbing was sewn with tags and used as team identifying markers. Many of the children had never seen a rugby ball before, but as you can see, that didn’t stop them from enjoying the game.
