West Yorkshire, UK--Mobus Fabrics Holdings has acquired Clarkson Textiles Ltd. in Lancashire.

Clarkson’s becomes the second coating plant within the group and will work closely with Mobus Sian Shaoxing in China,” says Lee Maxman, Mobus MD.

“This will enable Mobus to offer customers global access to OEKO-TEX certified FR upholstery fabrics and finishings to domestic and contract classifications,” he says.

“Mobus & Clarkson’s have enjoyed a close association for almost 30 years, with a shared enthusiasm for innovative upholstery, technical textiles & Fire-Retardant finishing,” Paxman continues.

“This relationship has been further emboldened in recent years with the two companies participating jointly on the development of halogen free eco-friendly, sustainable FR coatings,” he adds.

Paxman says Mobus has launched this new FR technology into the UK upholstery market, under the GreenFR® brand.

The acquisition of Clarkson “gives Mobus greater accessibility into future technical developments. A focus on new technology, service and quality will underpin the future direction of the company with an emphasis on improving all areas of sustainability,” Paxman says.

Clarkson’s MD, Roger White says he has committed his future to the new venture with a focus on research and development alongside the Mobus technical team. New investments have been identified and will be made available for future development of new FR technology, he says.
