Lantex Manufacturing Company Limited was established as a textile manufacturing company in 1918. Most of the staff and sales team have enjoyed working for our Company and in the textile industry for all of their working lives so we can therefore speak with authority when customers need advice on sourcing and technical details of any textile fabric.

Specialising in the production of textiles such as:

  • Most types of tea towels
  • Industrial fabric

Lantex has many hundreds of satisfied customers throughout the United Kingdom, Europe, the USA, Australia, New Zealand and other sister Commonwealth nations.

Lantex is based in Accrington in the heart of East Lancashire where cotton was once king. We continue to work with cotton and our specialist textile fabrics are still woven in Lancashire . We also source direct from any textile manufacturing company worldwide for the best and most suitable quality on behalf of our clients.

Our screen printing fabric and choice of blank tea towel go into the best products in the textile screen printing industry for the promotions, catering, hotel and laundry trades. A blank Lantex tea towel is recognised as the one which sets the standard as a screen printing fabric based on suitability for purpose and price.

As an experienced and established textile manufacturer we work closely together with companies large and small in the screen printing and laundry business, fine food producers, dental supplies and catering supplies as well as hotels, clubs and restaurants, art colleges, schools and cleaning supplies. Cruise ships, conference organisers and seafood restaurants take our muslin lemon wraps and conference table cloths all over the world.
