Chieftain is one of the leading producers of vinyl fabric in Europe
We specialise 100% in the design and manufacture of performance fabric and contract upholstery for seating, and have continually invested, throughout our history, to develop technically superior products for upholstery supplies. As part of this, we have a full time Plastics Technologist to constantly improve our product ranges. On an ongoing basis, we improve our most traditional and long-standing products to ensure that they pass new EU regulations, REACH directives and customer-required improvements in the areas of microbial resistance (C. Diff, NDM-1), fire retardancy (Crib 7, M1) and usability. Our top quality materials and uncompromising manufacturing standards produce an inherently better product.
In addition, new ingredients or production processes are being developed in the industry (e.g Crib 5 mattress covering) and Chieftain are always trying to adopt these improvements into our production processes and product range portfolio.
Our innovative production minimises environmental impact. 25% of raw material is from recycled content and we produce a fabric that is 90% recyclable.
