Cutting, slitting, sheeting and heat sealing of woven and non-woven material
Keenedge Ltd was founded in 1983 by friends and Co-Directors Iain McLeod and Jonathan Higham. Starting out with one piece of equipment, the business has grown and now occupies premises of 20,000 square feet in the South Lakes District area.
Cutting, slitting, sheeting and heat sealing of woven and non-woven materials is at the core of our business and we provide these services to a wide range of industries. But that’s not all, as part of the wider solution we also provide ancilliary services such as warehousing, stock control, traceability, bespoke packaging and the organising of transportation and delivery.
We take a flexible, tailored approach in order to meet your requirements and save you time and space with cost-effective solutions. If for example you have goods that need slitting in batches, we can warehouse the material for you, processing and despatching the required amounts direct to the end user as and when you call it off.
We’ve been in the industry for 30 years and in that time have built up a wealth of knowledge and experience that helps us to present the best and most efficient services for our customers. Delivering high-quality results is of utmost importance to us and because of our commitment to quality and process management, we have achieved ISO9001 Quality Management accreditation.
