UK. Versatile textile manufacturing company, AW Hainsworth active in technical and industrial fabrics, has acquired Scottish-based Replin Fabrics, one of the worldâ€™s leading designers and manufacturers of supreme quality fabric for national and international transportation, aiming to enhance passenger travel experience in a deal that will increase its Leeds workforce by 15 roles.
Replin will close its manufacturing facility at the end of the year, with the operation being integrated into Hainsworth's manufacturing and innovation centre at Spring Valley Mills, Leeds.

Replin also believes in the importance of combining the traditional qualities of craftsmanship with cutting edge innovation and product development to meet the needs of a growing and diverse global customer base.
AW Hainsworth has been an unrivalled market leader for over 230 years. From the time Abimelech William Hainsworth started manufacturing woollen cloth in Yorkshire in 1783 and today operates across a range of markets, including apparel, interiors, ceremonial uniform, emergency services PPE, cue sports and funeral products.
The Spring Valley Mills has been the home of the Hainsworth family business, a fully vertical mill, one of the very few still remaining in the UK where every process in house is carried out, from the selection of raw wool bought from as far as Australia and New Zealand through to the finished cloth. Their manufacturing facility is also able to offer commission manufacturing and finishing processes to other businesses and mills.
