Cygnet Texkimp

Fibre converting specialist and custom machine builder

Cygnet Texkimp is an international market-leader in the manufacture and export of fibre handling and converting machinery to process advanced materials for the global aerospace, automotive, wind energy, sporting goods and industrial markets.

Our portfolio of innovative and award-winning machines includes creels, prepreg, coating, lamination and consolidation processing lines, tape-slitting and spooling, and filament-winding equipment, alongside state-of-the-art fibre handling and robotics systems.

Around the world, we’re widely recognised as the leading supplier of carbon fibre prepreg lines to the aerospace sector and the largest manufacturer of creel technologies to the international technical textiles market.

Four decades of fibre handling expertise

Our story began in 1974 when Cygnet Texkimp was founded by British textile engineer Colin Smith to manufacture creel technologies for the traditional textile market. Our move into technical fibres came in the late 1970s when the company was commissioned to create some of the first ever carbon fibre creels for the military aerospace sector.

Today, our global business is still headquartered in the UK with the capacity to deliver a comprehensive design, manufacture, installation and after-sales service to customers anywhere in the world.

All about the fibre

In the last four decades we have continually driven innovation in fibre handling and converting, developing the knowledge and machine capability that have made us a technical authority in our field.

In every piece of technology we design and build our ultimate focus is always the fibre, because we know the key to manufacturing the most valuable and useful performance materials lies in the quality of the fibre and the ingenuity of the handling technology used to create them.

Looking to the future, we combine an extensive programme of collaborative R&D with thriving apprenticeship, graduate recruitment and knowledge-sharing schemes which are helping to stimulate growth in our industry for decades to come.
