Medical Fabrics and So Much More

Here at Redwood, we’re proud of our reputation within the medical sector. As white label manufacturers for many of the leading medical mattress brands in the UK and overseas, our products can be found in hospitals and clinics in over 80 countries. In addition, we also produce our own brand of medical mattresses under the Verituss brand name, setting a new standard in medical mattress manufacture.

We’re constantly pushing the boundaries in technical and medical fabrics, adding features such as high frequency welding, anti-microbial protection and specialist foams for the prevention of bed sores. Our experts are so well known and recognised within the industry and beyond, that they have been invited to work with the British Healthcare Trades Association on numerous occasions, developing new technical standards and product innovations.

We are known across the world for our healthcare experience and medical fabrics, but that’s just a small part of Redwood’s global reach…

Unrivalled technical textile expertise

Alongside our medical fabrics, you’ll find Redwood technical textiles turning up in all kinds of diverse and unusual sectors. Manufacturers from a huge range of industries rely on Redwood to source and supply precisely the fabric they need to tackle the unique challenges of their specific sector.

We are first and foremost a solutions provider. Our approach is that the answer is yes, no matter what the question is. For example, when a national air ambulance service was having problems with skiers suffering from hypothermia who were losing heat through their heads, they turned to our dedicated design team to help them out. Redwood worked with them to create a bespoke balaclava, from advanced thermal fabrics, with heat built in.

Of course, we’re not always saving lives in medical and search and rescue situations. Sometimes Redwood technical textiles are used to enhance lives, providing specialist fabrics for everything from sports kit to camping gear and outdoor equipment. We also protect lives by supplying military and civilian applications for use in the air and out to sea.

Wherever a specialist technical textile is required, backed by specialist skills and experience, Redwood are here to help. That’s why we’re trusted by manufacturers and end users across the spectrum, around the world.

Finding the right fabric

Redwood excels by finding the right fabric first time, every time. We carry over £1.5 million worth of stock in-house at our Skelmersdale manufacturing base. We also have unrivalled access to millions more, thanks to our excellent relationships with leading suppliers.

This access and expertise means Redwood can offer our customers economies of scale that they simply won’t enjoy anywhere else. This bulk buying power helps to cuts costs in your product designs without ever compromising quality. These extensive stocks also give customers advantages at the other end of the scale. Where other companies insist on minimum quantities to justify ordering in fabrics, Redwood already has the textiles you need, and can work as small as single units for proof of concept.

What’s next…?

The Redwood team are thrilled to work across such a diverse range of sectors and products, but we’re not ready to rest on our laurels. We’re always on the lookout for the next challenge, whether that’s helping you to turn your dream into a reality, or it’s working with you to find an innovative solution to a pressing problem. Whether you’re working in aerospace or facing a more down to earth problem we have the answers you’re looking for.

So yes; Redwood is a leading medical fabrics supplier and manufacturer, but we are also so much more than that. To see how we can help you with your next project, get in touch with our team today. We love a challenge, so bring it on!
