Fabric supplier expands with acquisition

Mobus Fabrics Holdings has announced the incorporation of Clarkson Textiles Ltd into the Mobus group.

Mobus and Clarkson have enjoyed a close association for almost 30 years, with a shared enthusiasm for innovative upholstery, technical textiles and fire-retardant finishing. This relationship has been further emboldened in recent years with the two companies participating jointly on the development of halogen-free, eco-friendly, sustainable FR coatings.

Mobus has launched this new FR technology into the UK upholstery market, under the GreenFR brand.

Mobus says the acquisition gives it greater accessibility into future technical developments, and that a focus on new technology, service and quality will underpin the future direction of the company, with an emphasis on improving all areas of sustainability.

Clarkson’s MD Roger White has committed his future to the new venture, with a focus on R&D alongside the Mobus technical team. New investments have been identified and will be made available for future development of new FR technology.

Claire Kelly will continue in her role as sales manager, ensuring continuation of business to customers and suppliers.

Clarkson has becomes the second coating plant within the group, and will work closely with Mobus Sian Shaoxing in China, enabling Mobus to offer customers global access to OEKO-TEX-certified FR upholstery fabrics and finishings to domestic and contract classifications.
