A Leeds-based business, which supplies and distributes textiles for the hospitality and health care sectors, has invested in a new factory in China.

The towelling manufacturing facility in Nantong, in the province of Jiangsu, will enable Pegasus Group to continue its rapid expansion programme, working with the UK’s largest laundries and hotels through its Pegasus Textiles division.

Pegasus Textiles will now be able to meet the increased demands of the hospitality industry, following the easing of COVID-19 restrictions in the UK.

These plans also include an increased product offering for Pegasus Homeware, as it expands further into the retail market in the coming months and years.

Ivan Zhou, CEO of Pegasus Group, which is based at Logic Leeds business park in south Leeds, said: “These magnificent new manufacturing premises will be a game-changer for us.

“We are establishing ourselves as a major player in the UK homeware market and our Nantong factory will provide the capacity and the expertise to enable us to achieve this aim.

“These are exciting times for Pegasus, as we meet the challenges and take the opportunities presented in a post-pandemic world.

“We are looking to build on our reputation for being both a trusted partner and an innovative company, focussed on meeting the needs of our customers, swiftly and effectively.

“The quality of the textiles we are using, combined with the very latest manufacturing techniques and machinery, ensures the products created are amongst the finest of their kind in the world.

“These products include the very best towels, linen, bath robes and bath mats. They set a gold standard, meeting the strict demands of the hospitality and laundry industries.”
