W&J Knox Ltd
W & J Knox Ltd was first established 240 years ago when the Knox family set up a small textile mill in Kilbirnie to spin the locally-grown flax fibre and to manufacture linen thread. It was first registered as a company in 1778 then subsequently named W & J Knox in the 1800s by the sons of the founder. Knox have been making nets for fish farmers worldwide since the industry’s beginnings, producing a range of customised cage nets, bird nets, predator solutions, sweep and sampling nets. In conjunction with our partners, Garware-Wall Ropes, we now also supply lice shields, treatment tarpaulins and wrasse hides. We are the Scottish distributor for LiftUp mortality extraction systems and exclusively use Steen-Hansen antifoulant and polish coatings on our nets. The Knox family was involved with the company for the first 200 years, with ownership passing through the generations, and agents being set up all over the world.
