Shahtex Leicester Ltd

Shahtex Leicester is a leading manufacturer of knitted jersey fabric, using circular knitting machines.

With a grant from the Business Gateway, they have invested in new computerised machinery that will enable them to develop seamless clothing, requiring minimal stitching works.

These new machines mean they can enter a new and growing market, believed to be unique in the UK. This will be a game-changer for them, considering the issues that the fashion and textile sector is facing in Leicester, giving them a serious edge over others.

The investment will improve competitiveness, bring efficiencies, take advantage of commercial opportunities available and create new jobs such as machine operators.
