HBWF was founded in 1977 in a joint venture with Haver & Boecker, the long established large German wire weaving company, to manufacture woven wire cloth and welded wire products in the UK.

The company is located in the Grange Industrial Estate near Warrington, Cheshire. The factory occupies 32,000 sqft and has a wide range of looms capable of producing heavy screening or fine filtration cloth, post-weaving operations equipment to manufacture products to individual customer’s requirements and modern welding facilities for high quality welded work.

In-house quality control facilities are supported by the comprehensive product testing and development resources of Haver & Boecker. The technical department of Haver & Boecker are actively involved in the drafting of technical standards for woven wire products, such as ISO 9044, which ensures that HBWF products reflect the latest technical specifications.
