Alan Northrop Ltd was started in 1949 to supply various textile accessories to the Yorkshire and Lancashire weaving industry.
Over a period of time the company began to specialise in the sale of roller covering strips, and today we are the largest stockists of this range of products in the UK. Besides the home market, some go abroad either directly or through sales to textile machinery manufacturers.
Our two main areas of expertise are Roller Coverings, also known as Take-Up Strips and Dennison Attaching Systems.
Our stock of roller coverings is the most extensive in the UK. Along with our experience, it has been developed over many years and represents the best quality products drawn from manufacturers around the world.
These materials have many uses and we will always be pleased to discuss and advise on a particular application.
