Our History

Established in Lancashire, the birthplace of British textiles, and with over 130 years in the industry, the story of the company dates back to the 19th century when Benjamin Davies and brother in law James Eckersley started operations of the Pincroft Dyeing and Printing company for the bleaching and finishing of fabrics in 1891.

A century later in 1998, after joining forces with Carrington Textiles, both companies saw a considerable turnover increase from €50 million in 1999 to €104 million in 2019, as well as growing the export business extensively to reach new geographical markets including Europe, Middle East, Asia and Africa.
