About Us

Suppliers to Industry, Transport and Construction

Mudfords was founded in 1832 by John Horace Mudford who set up in business as a rope maker.  The firm continued to thrive under the successive members of the family’s management. 

The Sons of John Horace Mudford, left to right - William, Cyril, Harold, James, Stanley, Horace, Septimus. From the early days of making rope from hand spun hemp, Mudfords now manufactures and merchants a large range of industrial textile products.  Our range includes purpose made covers, tarpaulins, lifting slings, protective clothing and safety and janitorial products for general industrial use. 

In March of 2018, Stuart Canvas Group, the UK's leading provider of sports ground and industrial covers, acquired Mudfords as the company continues to increase its production capacity and extend its range of service into new and diverse marketplace.                    

Stuart Canvas Ltd, A & J Ltd, Mudfords Ltd form our group which is built upon an ethos of producing quality products which are proudly manufactured in the UK. The group has 60,000sqft of purpose built manufacturing facilities across 3 sites in Warrington, Sheffield and St Helens. This provides us with high levels of quality control with quick turnaround times.

For the transport industry, we supply sheets, covers, side curtains, nets and load restraint equipment, and for the construction industry, weather protection systems, general purpose sheets, frost protection covering and fall arrest equipment.

At Mudfords we understand that a successful business relies ultimately on the satisfaction of our customers, and we aim to supply a straight-forward, no-nonsense service together with a wide range of modern quality products at competitive prices.
