About us

Company details

A solid background. A flexible approach.
Since 1917, inspired thinking and good commercial ideas have always been the driving force behind our success. At Bainbridge International we take customer enquiries very seriously and endeavour to find solutions to their individual needs. Leading the way in the development of the sailcloth industry has stood us in good stead to recognise viable markets, which in turn keep us at the forefront of market trends. Bainbridge International is always looking to the future for new innovations and solutions.

The application of innovation.
At Bainbridge International we have an extensive knowledge of the design and performance of technical fabrics and laminates. This, coupled with our ongoing commitment to technical development, enables us to develop sophisticated industrial fabrics and products for a wide range of applications.

All our materials, regardless of their end use, are subjected to our rigorous testing programme. Only then can we maintain the quality standards for which we are world-renowned. This testing also forms the base for further product development - something that sets us apart from our competitors, indeed we have developed many of our own brands for areas as diverse as the architectural and medical markets through to defence and shipbuilding.

Specialised solutions for specialist markets.
Delivering specialised solutions to niche markets around the world demands an in-depth understanding of each market involved. That's why at Bainbridge International we work closely in partnership with our clients to gain a real understanding of their business and to identify their precise requirements.

Nowhere is this approach more important than when we are called upon to solve a problem. For example, when the organisers of the BT Global Challenge asked us to come up with a way to stop the battens in their sails breaking, it was important for us to grasp the bigger picture. As a result, we identified that the problem extended beyond the battens themselves to the relationship between the sail and mast. Our solution was to design an entirely new integrated system, the Sailman™ Sail Management System, comprising tracks, cars, hinges, boxes and battens. A highly customised engineering project, we have since down-scaled the design to develop three ranges that have far-reaching applications within the sailing market.

With new product development, we also work in close collaboration with suppliers and outside experts. In the case of Coverguard®, our world-leading Flame Retardant Temporary Protection System developed for the marine industry, we worked alongside internationally recognised bodies for the prevention of fire as well as a number of marine organisations. The result was a product that is cost-effective and which conforms to rigorous safety and fire regulations.

We are skilled in marketing brands, both our own, and those of other companies seeking international distribution. AIRX™, a revolutionary spinnaker fabric, and DIAX™, a laminated sailcloth, are just two well-established Bainbridge brands that we successfully launched.

Global thinking. Worldwide resources.
Through our international offices in Europe, the USA and Australia, and our network of long-established distributors, we serve customers in over 75 countries around the world.

Our trained and highly experienced sales staff can offer comprehensive technical support and advice, while the Bainbridge Group as a whole provide a wealth of collective experience. And because we design and manufacture products for such wide-ranging and demanding applications, we have a design team of product specialists who between them are skilled in textile technology, fibre selection, design engineering, manufacturing, engineering, chemical science and metallurgy. Add well-stocked warehouse facilities that enable us to respond to our customers' requirements promptly and efficiently, and it's easy to see why Bainbridge International are uniquely qualified to supply the world with the finest quality materials.

Your partner for the future.
With over 80 years' experience in producing textiles and allied accessories, we have all your material needs covered. We can draw on our excellent technical knowledge of various markets and apply that knowledge to the most complex and diverse situations. Or we can combine our development capability with clients' manufacturing ability to create real competitive advantage. Whether we are helping to solve a problem or exploiting an opportunity to add value to a product, we will work closely alongside you to provide a solution specifically tailored to your needs. In short we will do everything we can to build valuable long-term business partnerships.
