As nonwoven materials specialists we help organisations develop commercially-viable nonwoven fabrics and products. This involves improving the performance of existing nonwoven components or developing completely new materials and technologies.


Formed as a University of Leeds spin-out company in 2005, the NIRI team includes leading nonwovens specialists providing a unique knowledge of nonwoven materials, technology, products and business. Our expertise lies in our core ability to optimise the properties, process and cost of nonwoven fabrics. This allows us to meet specific product requirements in many different market sectors.


With over fifteen years experience in the research & development of nonwovens we are able to engineer the structural architecture of fibrous materials to meet the required performance parameters.
