Closure Announcement

24 March 2022

Dear Customers,

The last 70 years of business has been a journey, in which we have been proud to serve the window blind trade and it would not have been possible without you, our customers. For the loyalty and support shown, we say thank you.

It is with regret that I wish to announce the forthcoming closure of R.A. Irwin Window Blind Division on Friday 29th April 2022. This was an extremely difficult decision to make and one which we tried hard to avoid. We explored every possibility with the hope of continuing, but in the end, the challenges faced were too large to surmount. We apologise for any disruption this may cause.

Our Sales Office will be accepting orders, up to and including, Friday 29th April 2022. All orders will be honoured, subject to stock availability. We kindly request your cooperation in helping settle all accounts before closure.
On a more positive note, Lienesch Limited will take on the running of Honeycell® from their Lienesch facility in Leeds. This collection has been very well received by the UK market and is trading strongly. Please follow this link for Lienesch Ltd contact details.

At R.A. Irwin, our Mattress Division continues to thrive so as a company we are not ceasing to trade. This allows us to manage the department wind-down in a professional manner.

Over the following days and weeks, we will be running a series of online auctions to liquidate the remaining fabric stocks (excluding Honeycell®  fabrics) in our warehouse. If you are interested in previewing our existing stocks and making us an offer we can't refuse, please get in touch with our Sales Office.

Working in the window blind industry, we have made some great friends along the way. It is a part of my life, that I will look back upon fondly and be very grateful for. Please accept my apologies if you did not receive a personal phone call from myself or one of the team to explain these circumstances. Unfortunately, there have been too many people to contact in a very short period of time. We will, of course, be happy to take your call if you wish to discuss any of this with a member of our team.

Yours sincerely,

Richard Irwin

Managing Director
