Sir Anthony Ullmann

Anthony has spent almost 40 years in the textile industry latterly manufacturing and selling polyester yarn used in automotive interior trim by all the major car makers worldwide. In 1998 he, together with his business partner, created the company that is now Autofil Worldwide Limited when he bought Europe’s most modern state of the art manufacturing facility in Nottingham. Over the next few years he built the business to sales of £40m and a 35% share of the European automotive yarn market. In 2012 this culminated in the sale of Autofil to their long standing Italian partner Sinterama, which is a worldwide automotive yarn manufacturer with plants in Europe, the Far East and South America. Anthony is on the Board and is their Global Director of Automotive.
