We supply everything from sewing threads to plastic bags, woven narrow fabric to lay flat tubing, eyelets to adhesive tapes, and can cater to almost every requirement.
G H Frecknall & Co Ltd was established in 1897 as a major supplier of components to the then 'growing' footwear industry based in and around Northamptonshire and we are still a vital part in the British Footwear Industry today.
The company grew successfully until the early 1950's with depots in Leicester, Northampton, Rushden and Kettering.
In the mid 1970's a new modern premises was built on the Finedon Road Industrial Estate in Wellingborough, Northamptonshire, where we are still based. We have now diversified into more adventurous areas of industry and in doing so, our product range has grown in all the directions that these expanding markets have required.
