As Manchester’s oldest textile company, Behrens have been supplying fabrics and finished products into all areas of the textile wholesale and retail markets for close to 200 years. Ever since the industrial revolution, international trade has been an integral part of our operations and our well-established sourcing and distribution networks currently spread across five continents: Europe, Asia, North America, South America and Africa.

The Behrens of today is a sixth-generation family-owned business, managed by the descendants of Sir Jacob Behrens who established the company in 1834.

Integrity and commitment to quality are core principles of our business conduct. Our reputation for excellence is built on a tradition of trusted products, faultless service and an unwavering belief in authenticity.

We are committed to providing a quality product and service through the development of strong relations with customers and robust business processes to support the ethics, values and strategy of the organisation.
