Cottingley-based Curtis Wools, a textile firm has grabbed admiration from Judith Donovan, a Bradford based entrepreneur for the investments made by it to rescue a novel laboratory working for identification and resolution of issues concerning the UK and international textile industry. The laboratory has been relocated at Cashmere Works in Birksland Street, Bradford.

Mrs. Donovan, representing the Bradford-based British Wool Marketing Board, officially inaugurated the ENco Global laboratory, set up with a six-figure investment that came in from the co owners of Haworth Scouring.

She said that, such an endeavor has confirmed the permanency of wool in Bradford and has contradicted people's belief that it has no future in Bradford and who used to say that it is now only an artifact of 19th century, but of which they can now be proud.

The laboratory extends a series of testing services for its national and international clients like, for the Greek army it is testing socks, berets and sweaters. ENco forms a part of a multi-million pound investment programme involved in the scouring and combing operations with a capacity to process up to one million kilos of British wool in particular every week.

Two years back, Martin and Simon Curtis, joint managing directors of Curtis Wools, attained the status as absolute proprietor of Haworth Scouring, Europe's leading commission wool scourer.

Extending an assurance backed by commitment to ensure Bradford's wool business a place in the contemporary world, Martin also informed regarding the substantial personal investments made by them on measures to perk up the environmental performance which have surpassed the regulatory standards.

Martin also added that the site has it all to scour the entire wool in UK that requires to be scoured and that they are hopeful that the process will last long even subsequent to their retirement.
