About Us

A Thriving International Business in Wales

Intension began life in 1972 as Cardiff Canvas & Rope manufacturing sewn products such as tarpaulins, covers, slings and webbing straps but by 2001 it had seen its traditional work withering away along with the demise of many Welsh industries. Since then, the company has changed out of all recognition into a thriving modern business able to compete at all levels - from small scale bespoke commissions to vast international projects. 

Intension is a thriving international business in Wales



Employing Knowledgeable Staff

Today the company employs 10 people, the majority of whom have been with the company for many years and who provide a knowledgeable and flexible skills base. Unusually in this industry, Intension still retains a sewing capacity but it can now offer the most modern fabric welding processes that are necessary for today's technical textiles.

Intension has won a number of prestigious national and international awards for its work and continues to strive towards an increasing level of excellence.


Offering a Fast, Flexible Innovative Service

Intension provides a complete fabric engineering package for a wide variety of interior and exterior, permanent or temporary tensile fabric structures. With over 15 years of experience in the field of fabric engineering, Intension can offer all its clients, and particularly those in the staging industry, a fast, flexible and innovative service.

Intension offers bespoke design and build solutions for the creation of tensile structures including pre-designed and engineered "off the shelf" fabric structures. It also specialises in staging and exhibition work for which it has won an impressive number of industry awards.
