Cygnet Texkimp has worked at the forefront of the fibre processing and handling market for over 40 years.
Cygnet Texkimp was founded in 1974 by British textile engineer, Colin Smith, to manufacture fibre unwinding creels for the traditional textile market. A trailblazer from the start, Texkimp, as it was then known, soon diversified into the advanced fibres and composites market, creating some of the first ever carbon fibre creels for early adopters in the 1970’s military aerospace sector.
Over four decades on, Cygnet Texkimp is a leading manufacturer of state-of-the-art fibre processing equipment, supplying the most advanced markets in the world including aerospace, automotive, wind energy, sporting goods and industrial.
All of our machines are still developed and manufactured at our UK headquarters, where we operate a world-class programme of R&D and welcome customers to trial our technologies in a secure environment. It is here that our exceptional teams of talented engineers work alongside experienced product specialists to bring to market an expanding portfolio of custom-built, next-generation technologies.
