Manufacturing

The technical production processes at Guilford include the most advanced techniques, including carbon fiber knitting and finishing machines, and we are continually researching new material and machinery to create innovative design effects and performance properties.

We hold more than 25 worldwide patents and our advanced research and development program is focused on a variety of intelligent textiles that are able to change the way we look at and use fabrics in the future.

We believe that Manufacturing Excellence is delivered through:

  • Philosophy of Lean Enterprise
  • Real time data
  • Focus on process efficiencies through Six Sigma techniques
  • Unique machinery modifications
  • Investment in high speed and high capacity machinery
  • Cost down and cost out culture throughout the organization


We can supply woven, knit and non-woven solutions with many different finishes and chemistries in widths up to 220 inches. We also offer secondary processes such as lamination, fabrication, printing, and slitting.

Our Pennsylvania mill is NSF certified hygienic, and our quality management system is certified to the Automotive Quality Standard TS16949.
