We were delighted to welcome two prestigious visitors from the University of Leeds this month. Professor Chris Carr, the Head of School and Chair of Textile Technology, together with Professor Stephen Russell, Deputy Director of the Centre for Technical Textiles and Chair of Textile Materials and Technology visited James Heal to see our facilities and meet some of our key personnel with expertise in design and textile testing.
Our Managing Director, David Repper, is a former student of the University and as a company that supplies the textile industry, we have a common interest to maintain our positions as influencers within the global textile community.
The visit was organised following an event at the University to celebrate the Textile Department’s prestigious heritage as well as current projects and future plans. We are keen to support the University’s commitment to conducting innovative research to revolutionise the textile industry.
