SDC Enterprises Limited is pleased to announce the recent acquisition of specialist weavers Sam Weller & Sons Limited.

Based in Holmfirth Sam Weller is one of the leading decatising wrapper manufacturers in the world, having almost a century of experience working with the cloth finishing industry. They also manufacture a wide range of specialist technical and industrial fabrics, predominately in cellulosic and man-made fibres.

SDC Enterprises have been working in partnership with Sam Weller, over many years, to ensure that high quality manufacture of SDCE’ world leading test fabrics is retained in the UK. The acquisition of SW will allow SDCE to secure the manufacture of its full-width fabrics, alongside the narrow weaving SDCE already operates, and add its extensive testing and quality control knowledge to SW’s diverse product portfolio.

The acquisition provides SW with a succession plan for the retiring directors, one of whom, Mr Anthony Weller will join the Board of SDCE as a Non-executive Director. Sixteen jobs at the Holmfirth site will be safeguarded by the deal.
