W&J Knox invests for the future


W&J Knox’s programme of investment and ongoing product development continues apace.

In partnership with Garware Technical Fibres, a braided HDPE net has been developed that can be successfully treated with antifoulant.  Following on from small-scale trials, Knox is set to coat cage nets with Steen-Hansen antifoulant for a full-scale field trial this spring.

Scotland’s largest net to date – 200m circular – has now been cleaned by Knox’s super-sized netwasher. The company has also invested in a new, larger service bay to handle these nets and scaled-up equipment.
Road transport isn’t the only option, as service nets can be brought in by sea to the nearby Fairlie Pier.
