Formed in the early sixties, Foundationwear Machinery Specialist Ltd (FMS) specialised supplying sewing machines, special parts and fittings for the bra and Corsetry trade, and also, due to a long association with the bedding industry, provided the same service for manufacturers of mattress’s and bedding.

 In 1990, FMS purchased Dowlings Sewing Machines to compliment the founding company and bring in expertise in the heavier areas of textile production, supplying Seiko sewing machines to manufacturers in areas such as military tentage, lorry side curtains, vinyl leisure equipment, commercial upholstery and curtains, sails and covers, safety and equestrian products. This also coincided with a move to larger premises where we were able to install engineering machinery so as to enable the manufacture and modification of parts and machines

Now in the the present day we have continued to move forward, first and foremost by being appointed as distributors and resellers of Brother Industrial Sewing Machines with specialist knowledge and support, relating to the Brother BAS programmable pattern stitchers.
