Automotive

Brits Nonwoven is a manufacturer of various nonwoven based products for the automotive trim industry.

Our green focus

With climate change being the most important issue facing humankind, fibres made from natural or recycled raw materials have become the preferred option. BAS manufactures products for the automotive industry using mainly natural post-consumer recycled plastic (PET) cool drink bottles recovered from landfill sites or natural fibres like Kenaf. General textile waste obtained from various textile converting operations such as apparel or upholstered furniture manufacturers also make up a large proportion of the raw materials consumed. The focus is not only on the recycled raw material employed, but also on the recyclability of the finished automotive part itself.

Brits Nonwoven committed to manufacturing superb quality products while simultaneously helping to reduce levels of greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere as well as its carbon footprint.
