    Oh yes! It is. We launched our new break-out Café in February 2020, a place where all colleagues can enjoy some time away from their desk, unwind and catch up with colleagues. It has a little ‘je ne sais quoi’ reflecting the values at SFM. Games and books can be borrowed, and a game of ping pong enjoyed. We have some quite good players at SFM!

    Yes, please, we would love to hear from you. So please send us your CV here

    We keep some stock for the most commonly requested sizes for our x-ray detectable yarns, and therefore can deliver these on-demand. Most of our products are made to order, and whilst we often will work 12 weeks ahead with most of our customers to help manage a smooth continuity of supply which is particularly relevant with the current Covid-19 pandemic; We can often deliver in a few weeks and will try our best to meet your schedule. Packed and sterile products however will be between 8 to 12 weeks once the packaging has been fully approved.
