Andrew Industries Ltd is a privately owned British multi-national
manufacturing Group. Our head office is in the UK and we manufacture from sites across Europe, North America, Mexico, China and Malaysia.
During the 1970’s the current Chairman, Edward Andrew, led the Group’s diversification into the manufacture of highly engineered needle punch felts for the industrial dry filtration market and now operates as our Textile Division. The Textile Division is a leading supplier world-wide of dust filtration needle felts for pollution control installations. The division has constantly invested in the latest equipment and technology, coupled with a highly motivated international team of expert textile technologists who lead the field in providing innovative solutions to ever-changing and challenging filtration applications.
A second phase of diversification took place in the late 1970’s with the establishment of the Engineering Division and was involved in the supply of engineered textile components for use in the Digital Print & Office Automation market (copiers, fax machines, laser printers and ink jet printers). The Engineering Division has since expanded to supply engineered textile and polyurethane components to a host of new markets sectors such as Appliance, Automotive, Offset Printing, Offshore Sub Sea Cable Protection, Renewable Energy and Contract Manufacturing.
In February 2014 the filtration companies within the Textile Division were sold to Lydall Inc a New York Stock Exchange listed company, headquartered in Manchester, Connecticut. Ongoing, Andrew Industries Group will concentrate future investment into its Engineering and Laundry businesses as well as developing business in the Electrical Insulation market following its recent investment in its USA subsidiary Bondex Inc.
As a result of this restructuring the Textile Division has been renamed to Industrial Materials.
