History of innovation

Since the foundation of the company in 1831, innovation has been at the heart of our business. Approaching 200 years of quality, dedication and constant innovation - this is why Baltex has been an industry leader for so long. Starting as a silk and lace manufacturer, but adapting to specialist fabrics after facing fierce competition from cheap imports, Baltex has always held adaptability and innovation as important principles.

The skills and values that were, and still are, used to produce pure silk fabrics to the highest standards have been developed to provide technical textiles meeting international flammability and environmental regulations. We also celebrate colour, design, and technical innovation, in a wide range of performance fibres. In 2009 the company won its second prestigious Queen's Award for International trade, after first winning it in 2003. This royal seal of approval has spurred us on to do even better in our field.

Variety of industries

The variety of the fabrics that we design and manufacture has allowed us to develop and expand our knowledge and experience base, while also applying effective production methods to an array of industries. The varying needs and requirements of different sectors has led us to develop fabrics with an enormous array of qualities, including high-strength, slash-resistance, insulation and breathability. Our methods, machinery and designs have all benefitted from our sector diversity.

We have developed a novel range of three dimensional spacer fabrics. Please see the link for XD Spacer Fabrics. In addition, we apply specialist fabric finishing techniques, laminations and coatings and Baltex is proud to be shaping the future of technical textiles.
