The company was established in 1976 by Jack Oldham. Jack was a senior purchasing manager for one of the UKs largest textiles manufactures.
Jack was asked by a number of his friends, if he could source cotton wipers for use in their garages and engineering companies. He used his knowledge gained from working within the textiles industry to source 100% cotton wipers.
He started the business part time working out of his garage in 1975, before resigning his position and formed Jack Oldham Textiles Ltd in 1976.
Jack rented a small unit near his home in Glossop 1976. He started supplying local companies with industrial cleaning wiper cloths. Jack expanded the business in 1980 and moved to larger premises in Glossop, and began supplying wiper cloths nationwide.
Jack retired in 1996 and the business was taken over by his Daughter Jillian and husband Stephen Cocksey. Both had an extensive background within the textile industry.
Stephen Cocksey is the current Managing Director.
Under Stephen's management the company expanded in 2000 and moved to larger premises in Whaley Bridge, Derbyshire.
The company is nationally recognised as one of the UKs leading manufacturer and supplier of industrial cotton wiper cloths.
As a testament to our customer service, the customers that we supplied with wipers and polishing cloths in 1976 are still our customers today.
