About Bradford Industries

Bradford Industries was established in 1987 as a carve-out from the Pandel Corporation.  Pandel was founded in 1963, tracing its roots back to the textile mills and leather tanning industry in Lowell, Massachusetts.  Bradford Industries became a leader in synthetic leather products supplying the Fashion & Footwear Industry.  In the late 90’s and early 2000’s Bradford Industries successfully transitioned their focus to performance textile coatings including applications in the Automotive Airbag and Industrial Coated Fabrics markets. 

With a new focus on textile coatings, Bradford quickly became one of North America’s leading polymer coaters; applying creative solutions of high value performance polymer coated fabrics to their customers in the Automotive, RV, Trucking, Marine, Contract Furniture and Industrial marketplace.

Today BSCT operates its Lowell facility using ISO 9001/IATF 16949 Design & Manufacturing of Coated Textiles with a diverse work force of 90 + employees.
