Warwick Mills was incorporated in the 1880s as one of the first textile mills in New Hampshire. From its origins as a family-owned cotton-based weaver, the company has emerged as a leading engineer and manufacturer of high-performance materials.
Throughout the years, Warwickâ€™s products have been used for many unusually demanding applications â€” from the material used in the 1930s in the world record achieving stratospheric balloon Explorer II, to the inflatable floatation collars used in the Apollo missions in the 1960s, to the crash bags used to land NASAâ€™s Mars exploration rovers Pathfinder, Spirit and Opportunity over the past decade. These days Warwick is bringing its expertise to the industrial safety market by manufacturing products that provide superior protection from cuts and punctures.
Matt Keenan, sales manager, sums up Warwick Millsâ€™ business strategy: â€œ[It is] to identify applications where our new technological advances in fabrics, coatings and laminations increase strength and flexibility, reduce weight and thickness, and generally provide the best solutions available.â€
