Finlam Textiles

Who we are

Finlam Textiles

Although the business has been going for 44 years, it is the best-kept secret in the Textile Industry.  Since the MBO a few years ago, Finlam has invested heavily in new equipment to facilitate the improvement of its current range of products and allow the company to expand into new markets.  Along with the acquisition of new equipment, Finlam has headhunted some of the most skilled personnel our local Industry has to offer.  This combination has resulted in Finlam experiencing substantial growth into new markets in recent years.  We realize that this success and growth could only be maintained and encouraged by growing all our staff from top to bottom.  Therefore we encourage a culture of learning.  

While most people view the South African Textile Industry as being in a downward spiral, we firmly believe with the combination of the DTI Capex programs, ever-weakening rand and governments local procurement policies, the opportunities are endless.  Due to the fact that we supply products into a vast variety of highly technical markets such fire-fighting, filtration, footwear, medical, military and apparel to name a few, we usually partner with a company that proves to be a leader in their respective field.   This allows us to run field trials and obtain constructive feedback to ensure that we continually improve our products’ performance.
