Clarkson Textiles are proud to be the first FR treatment company to carry the FRETWORK COGP(Quality Assurance) Logo) "Our processing facilities have been successfully audited by FIRA(BM TRADA) giving us independent quality assurance approval benefit to all our customers."

The FCOGP is “open for business” The companies that have supported the creation of the scheme and indeed have test driven the scheme through the first independent audits will be allowed to use Fretwork logo to describe their commitment to the principles of the scheme. We are now looking to extend the membership of the scheme.

The scheme has 2 basic components: audit to establish that firms possess the ability to produce consistent and reliable results and the sanction of denial of membership to any company that fails to maintain the standards set. The scheme will have teeth.

Work is already in hand to increase the scope of the scheme with sections to deal with the critical issues such as the choice of chemistry and any potential environmental impacts. Most of all we are looking to establish that we have listened to concerns expressed during the FFR Review process and have the resolve to deal with those issues.

If you have any questions about the scheme and want more information,please call or email Peter Wragg.

Franco Nannucci has been representing Mobus in US market for the last 5 years. The initial offering in the US was small as wanted to undertake a soft launch, concentrating on key customers to offer products on a stock basis.

After a successful and educational start we have learnt a lot about the US market, testing requirements, stock holding, price points but most importantly colour and design. In 2015 Mobus added a number of new collections, new colours and a new supply route primarily to support the US market.

Investing in our new distribution site, Mobus Shaoxing in 2015 has given us the foundation for growth. MD Ian Bostock added “with over 300 Sku’s and more planned for the future we hope to continue to our growth in the US market”. The sales in 2016 are very positive, with new testing developments with Applied Textiles Mobus will be able to offer collections with the popular Alta finishes.

At the heart of these developments, Franco has always been available for advice and feedback. Franco is extremely popular and very well known in the upholstery market. Aside from his none stop attitude to his work, Franco is involved in many social and charitable undertakings. His most recent Charity event raised over €60,000 for children developments in Africa.
