automotive interior solutions: The intersection of collaboration and capabilities
Every automotive project is unique, which is why Shawmut is dedicated to working collaboratively with every partner, from custom design, to engineering the perfect face material, or even composite structure. Our global network of engineering and design professionals, combined with leading manufacturing technologies, offers clients a collaborative, tailored approach to scaling their program.
Our 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. Backed by rigorous testing, engineering support, and world-class color-matching capabilities, Shawmut is paving the road for the next generation of automotive interiors.
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.
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.
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.
Our teams travel the globe to meet with the best automotive design studios and present fresh and innovative fabrics and discuss advanced material trends.
