When we started business way back in 1973 the main industry we served was the textile industry. It’s probably even worth mentioning that took the first three letters of our company name “Tex” from the word textile. In those days Northern Ireland and indeed many other areas in the UK had a rich heritage of textile manufacturing. Many factories existing making products such as carpets, linen, synthetic fibres and garments. Sadly many of these industries have all but gone in the UK. One of the products we sold in huge quantities within this industry was scissors. Factories employing hundreds of dressmakers for instance all needed to provide their workers with scissors and other hand tools. Other industry specific products included heavy duty cranked handle scissors, side bent scissors and even curved blade scissors. Two scissor brands we sold were Kutrite Scissors and William Whiteley scissors. Both of these brands represented the finest quality of scissor making that Sheffield had to offer and were well known industrial brands. We still have some of these scissors for sale although stocks are now limited and I have to say that “ when they’re gone, they’re gone.” If you are looking for hard wearing, industrial textile scissors then these are definitely worth looking at. All prices are now greatly reduced to clear.
For legal and safety reasons we do not sell scissors to anyone under the age of 18. If you wish to buy you will need to call us and we will process your order with a valid debit / credit card.
