Fantastic move for established textile firm.

ONE of the UK's oldest textile manufacturers and suppliers has appointed Birstall-based Fantastic Media as its outsourced marketing strategist.

Bradford-based JR Group UK, owned by the Taylor family, has been operating for more than 160 years.

It is mainly involved in manufacturing and supplying textile fibres, fillings and recycled waste as well as carpet underlay, insulation and special effects nonwovens.

The business incorporates James Robinson Fibres, which specialists in the distribution of man-made fibres; Texfelt, high quality felt carpet underlay; JR Property &Restorations, responsible for some of the region's top restoration projects, including Kirklees Hall and the Moor Park Estate at Harrogate; and Bespoke Grass, suppliers to the trade of high quality artificial grass.

Texfelt is the name behind a range of award winning environmentally-friendly carpet underlays for both domestic and commercial use.

The product has been used on a range of projects - from insulation in cars, installations in prestigious locations including Buckingham Palace to special effects in blockbuster films such as Star Wars: The Force Awakens and James Bond movie Spectre.

Andy Hobson, managing director at Fantastic Media, said: "JR Group UK is one of the biggest names in textiles and fibres in the country and we are delighted to have them on board.

"They are at an exciting point in their business and we're looking forward to help them develop their portfolio of businesses."
