About us

Company details

Originating from a partnership between Thomas Fothergill and Alexander Harvey formed in 1847, in Littleborough near Rochdale, in England, the Fothergill Group has developed from a cotton weaver, progressing to glass fibres, aramids and carbon fibre.
The Fothergill Group has an excellent export pedigree and is proud of its tradition of employing generation after generation of members of local families. The Group operates a modern apprenticeship scheme.

The weaving and knitting business operates from the head office site as Fothergill Engineered Fabrics Ltd, supplying performance glass fibre, aramid and carbon fibre into a number of industries, including aerospace, defence, reinforcement, high temperature and filtration applications, PTFE and elastomer coating, and automotive throughout the world.

In 2000, the Fothergill Group acquired the predecessors to Ferguson Polycom Ltd, (founded in 1911), which as well as using glass fabric woven by Fothergill Engineered Fabrics Ltd, has a vertically integrated production process for specialty rubber compounding and elastomer coated fabrics, with applications ranging from highly demanding engineering use to high-end fashion, leisure and sportswear. In October 2013, this business moved to a purpose-built single storey facility a short distance away from its former home at Windsor Mill, Hollinwood, Oldham, and incorporated the FOTHERGILL name into its trading title. This new facility is a significant investment by the Fothergill Group, providing improved production facilities and capabilities in facilitating the next period of growth.

Fothergill Coated Fabrics Ltd was founded in 2003 and operates from a purpose-built manufacturing and fabrication facility in Rochdale, England. The business coats glass fabric and aramid substrates with PTFE, as well as etched and adhesive coated PTFE/glass, supplying product in full rolls, sheets, tapes and belts to converters, distributors and end users worldwide.

Fothergill Australia Pty Ltd was founded in 2013 to serve the Asia-Pacific region with the whole range of Group products, including offering converting and fabrication facilities for PTFE coated products and associated sundry items.
