Company History

Knitwire Products is part of the Knitwire Group, founded in 1976 by Eric and Audrey Forber in Warrington, Cheshire, North West England, historically the heart of the UK wire processing industry.

Innovative Solutions

Since then Knitwire Products have developed a fine-tuned and successful synergy between innovative technical solutions and solid design, resulting in a well established range of knitted mesh products in many dimensions. Using their industry knowledge and innovation, Knitwire have helped many companies to find solutions to their problems using knitted wire mesh.

Family firm

The company is still owned and managed by the Forber family and as such offers the level of support that you would expect from a family based organisation. Our sales engineers and most employees have many years of knitted wire experience, most of whom, have been with the company since its foundation.

Award Winning Service

As a result of their innovative solutions, Knitwire have been selected as supplier of the year by several customers, and were even runners up in the 2019 Halton Business Awards for the Big BID Business of the Year award.
