At W & J Knox, we have been working with yarns and netting for over 230 years, offering the expertise to provide the product you need, whether in aquaculture, defence, sports or industrial netting applications, or processing of carpet yarns. New net manufacturing is complemented by our net maintenance unit and a workboat support service to the aquaculture industry.
W & J Knox was first established in Kilbirnie, Ayrshire in 1778 by the Knox family, who were linked to the company for the first 200 years.
Following a successful management buyout from Cosalt plc in 2004, Knox is now independently owned by Jim Traynor, MD, Roger Dehany, Sales Director and Jim Borrows, Financial Director. The management team is completed by David Sloan, Company Secretary.
