Cygnet Texkimp is a leading global provider of fibre handling and converting technology

We manufacture state-of-the-art machinery for the composites and high-performance fibre markets – our mission is to advance the technical performance of your fabrics

We are an export-led British manufacturer supplying state-of-the-art handling and processing machinery to high-performance fibre and fabric industries. We design and build technologies to process technical fibres for worldwide markets in aerospace, automotive, wind energy, sporting goods and industrial.

Founded in 1974 to manufacture creels for the traditional textile industry, we have built our knowledge to become experts in the handling and processing of advanced fibres in the markets that we service today. Over four decades we have built a strong reputation for quality, service and technical expertise, and a network of long-standing customers and valued suppliers.

Today, more than 95% of our sales are made up of international export to over 30 countries and 100% of our machines are manufactured in the UK. We combine 45 years of engineering excellence with fresh, innovative thinking and a rigorous programme of R&D to bring to market a portfolio of award-winning, best-in-class machines which are custom-built for our customers.

We specialise in the design and build of a wide range of downstream technologies including laminators, coaters, slitters and prepreg machines, alongside associated fibre handling and automation technologies.

In the last four years we have also launched a series of filament winding technologies, including high-speed, multi-axis and 3D winding machines. Our commitment to continual improvement has earned us a reputation as one of our industry’s true innovators.

We operate a busy programme of R&D at our innovation centre in Cheshire in the North West of England where we are working in partnership with world-leading scientists and academics to develop next-generation materials including strong, lightweight composite parts for automotive and aerospace.
