Huddersfield, the home of the world's finest worsted
From splendid and futuristic purpose built premises in Huddersfield, the home of the world’s finest worsted, state-of-the-art technology operates to satisfy an insatiable marketplace, a marketplace cultivated by a unique approach to the textiles business.
Such thought and care has gone into the planning and preparation of our building that we not only boast the optimum mix and layout of state-of-the-art equipment in a fully air conditioned atmosphere, but have also created an inspirational and satisfying work environment.
The company turns out 40/50,000 metres of fabric per week, much of which is a highly technical procedure. The operation is entirely computerised with statistical process and quality control systems. The emphasis on computerisation and information technology is to enhance the quality and performance of skilled operatives, and to equip us with the tools to accommodate change well into the next century. Fully computerised jacquard 'name-edge' machines especially complement the first of three main market niches:
This is the foundation on which Antich & Sons was built. Couture accounts for approximately 60% of our business by volume and commissions include exclusive, lightweight, short-run fabrics for the design and couture houses of the world.
An area of work that requires mass production of consistent quality fabrics for high street markets such as Debenhams, Marks & Spencer, Next and other leading European retailers.
We have corporate contracts with many leading businesses, supplying both fabrics and garments to specific requirements. Clients, such as British Airways, have enjoyed the quality of the Antich & Sons product and experienced world-class service for a number of years.
Our plant of over 40 machines is fully operational 120 hours per week.
