World-renowned automotive interior solutions

As the premier provider of engineered flexible multi-layer materials for automotive interiors, we create sun visors, headliners, door and console trims, overhead sunshades, and seats. We are leaders in the industry because we have the widest range of lamination processes available, and we are dedicated to the unending search for innovative processes and capabilities that add value to our customers’ products.

The intersection of collaboration and capabilities

Every automotive project is unique, which is why Shawmut is dedicated to working collaboratively with every partner to custom design and engineer the perfect face material or composite structure. Our global network of engineering and design professionals, combined with industry-leading manufacturing technologies, offers our clients a tailored approach to scaling their program. Collaboration is at the core of what we do.

Shawmut’s recent merger with the Specialty Industrial Business unit of Glen Raven Technical Fabrics represents the combining of forces between two longtime partners. We now offer the full suite of automotive interior solutions, from durable high-performance knit fabrics to flexible multi-layer laminated composites. And backed by rigorous testing, engineering support, and world-class color matching capabilities, Shawmut is paving the road for the next generation of automotive interiors.


Headliner and Sunvisor
Fabric and composite engineering combine to meet the unique performance requirements of each customer. Small and large rolls, pallets of cut sheets, or any other delivery format is available as we design the right solution with the customer. We provide a new generation of flat knit high-performance fabrics that incorporate the latest in contemporary design trends in our industry.

Through exclusive partnerships with cover material producers, we laminate automotive seating materials efficiently and cost-effectively through our U.S. regional production facilities.

Our purchasing scale allows us to supply your low volume applications with high volume buying power. We supply roll goods, cut sheets, or die cut parts from your drawing. Proven solutions are available for the full spectrum of manufacturing processes for this interior trim component.

Sunshade/Roller Shade
We offer A-surface fabrics to high performance films and adhesives to meet the processing demands of sunshade and roller shade applications. We develop materials that most efficiently satisfy the strict requirements of this area of the vehicle.

Door Trim & Console
Our sophisticated ERP system is well equipped to manage the complexities of color, grain, and construction to support today’s complex trim levels and floor console designs. Whether it’s materials for vacuum forming processes, low pressure injection molding, or heat activated adhesive wrapping – we have the experience, and creativity, to develop the right solution for our clients.

Cover Materials
Our teams travel the globe to meet with the best automotive design studios and present fresh and innovative fabrics and discuss advanced material trends. In collaboration with our strategic fabric formation partners, raw material suppliers, and branded cover material producers, we are the complete resource from concept to mass production.
