Fibre2Fashion: Interview with David Buxton

Performance testing equipment market is missing imagination

Roaches International is a UK based manufacturer of equipment used for the manufacture and quality control of textiles – known and respected worldwide for its suite of laboratory dyeing and testing equipment. David Buxton, Sales Director, Roaches, spoke to Fibre2Fashion about the company’s positioning and reach in the world market, its best-selling textile performance testing equipment, and the growth expected in the next 5 years.

Q: Give us a background of Roaches. Where is the company positioned in the domestic and international market today?

Roaches International is a globally recognised manufacturer and supplier of laboratory dyeing/finishing equipment and textile performance testing instruments. The brand has been operating on the world stage for more than 40 years and under the current ownership from 2008.
 

Q: How does your supply chain network work? What regions of the world are part of your supply chain?

As a UK based manufacturer, we feel it is vital to, wherever possible, ensure our supply chains remain within the UK so we can offer equipment under the “made in UK” banner. The majority of our core supply chain can be found within a short distance from the Roaches manufacturing plant near Leeds in West Yorkshire.
 

Q: Which brands & retailers are you currently associated with?

Historically and currently we have always maintained strong relationships with UK based retailers and brands including (but not limited to) M&S, Next and Burberry. International brands include Adidas and Decathlon. Our equipment offering, whenever technically possible, will have the correct specification to conform to many other UK and International retailer testing expectations.
 

Q: Who are your competitors in the international market?

There are many businesses around the world that manufacture products that will fit under the “textile performance testing” umbrella. We could class each of them as a competitor, but we do not make that link as we believe our products are best in class
