£1.5 Million Investment

Jul 2018

£1.5 million investment in new thermal bonding oven

In July 2018 John Cotton made a £1.5 million investment to upgrade our existing thermal bonding oven used on our unique ‘dual’ carding line. After nearly 30 years with the existing oven in place, this investment was welcomed and will allow us to improve upon the quality of our thermally bonded polyester products with increased efficiency.

The gallery of photos shows the old oven coming out and the new oven going in. The engineers and John Cotton employees worked around the clock to ensure the transition was seamless and production could resume as planned.
