Since its establishment in 1962, Nouwens have reinvested in the family business, developing quality technology. With experience, foresight and commitment, a unique, vertical carpet manufacturing plant has been developed and maintained in Harrismith. Constant updating and commissioning of the latest systems available in the world ensure that Nouwens can produce products which hold their own internationally. The mill dyes its own wool and synthetics for woollen and semi-worsted spinning. A wide range of modern yarn effect and heatsetting equipment prepares yarn for the new generation tufting mill. In all expansions and developments, concern for the environment remains a top priority. This includes selection of chemicals and specially developed machines and systems.
