September 2016 – Sylkay Textiles Ltd acquires Aquatex

Sylkay Textiles Ltd has acquired from PIL Membranes Ltd, the laminated fabric business run under the trade name Aquatex®. Originally known as Porvair®, the business was later rebranded as Aquatex®. Sylkay Textiles will be using the trading style Aquatex Fabrics. All existing production, testing and quality standards will be retained but orders will be dealt with by Sylkay Textiles.


Sylkay Textiles are a long-established stockist and distributor of textiles, based in Golborne, Warrington, UK. The ultimate holding company is Associated Yarns Ltd. The main shareholders of the group have previous experience of military and contract fabrics with Courtaulds Textiles. They retain knowledge of the design and development of military fabrics especially in the fields of foul weather fabrics, counter surveillance, NBC and other specialist protection needs.


Aquatex Fabrics will continue to use Porelle® membranes within their laminated ranges. The team at Sylkay look forward to a successful future working with all existing and new Aquatex Fabrics customers.
