Charles Twite & Co Ltd is a well established company spanning parts of three centuries. The business was founded in the centre of Leicester in the 19th century (1890) supplying various components to the shoe and clothing industry. The company grew strongly during the 20th century, managing to survive the world wars and recessions and are now continuing to grow in the fast changing 21st century.
After many good years in the city centre, it became necessary for us to re-locate to South Wigston - for larger warehousing and parking facilities, etc. We felt this was the way forward and our factory unit was developed in 1991 manufacturing Stripping, Binding and Piping etc. for the shoe, garment and allied trades. In the past we have supplied Buckles, Gloves, etc. and although we still do a limited trade in these areas, we have diversified into the exciting world of Exhibitions and Displays.
Due to the demise of shoe and clothing manufacturing in the UK, we decided to convert our factory into additional warehouse space due to the growth of business to the Exhibition Industry, which now enables us to carry larger stocks in a wider range of materials as shown on the website. In November 2005 we had the opportunity to open a warehouse in Yorkshire, which now enables us to service the North of the Country more efficiently.
A popular range of F/R PVC’s, Suedettes, Felts, and good quality Loop Nylon (Plain, Self Adhesive, and Foam Backed) plus other essential items for many purposes, including Shell Schemes, Modular Systems and Notice Boards. We also have an 'In House' making up service of casement, Loop Nylon or Net Ceilings, Conference, Stage Drapes, and Night Sheets etc. made to your requirements - ask us to quote!
Currently, we are embarking on a new venture bringing various qualities of specialised PVC’s to our stocks for a variety of industrial uses. All enquiries welcome. We will keep you fully updated on these developments but WATCH THIS SPACE!!!
