About Bainbridge

Bainbridge International Ltd. is a privately owned UK business operating from Hedge End in Southampton.

The company, founded in Boston US in 1917, originally started by designing and manufacturing Sailcloth from Egyptian cotton. A business at the forefront of new development, Bainbridge was the first sailcloth manufacturer to pioneer synthetic sailcloth - inventing and creating the current market over 80years ago.

Since then Bainbridge has expanded - into Sail Hardware and Marine Hardware - with the incorporation of the Aqua Marine distribution business, and developed through a range of technical application products for specific customer markets including outdoor leisure, recreation and 4x4 markets.
