Due to the high quality of service, efficiency, and standards, R&M International soon became a leading supplier of textiles, plastics, and recycling materials to the global community, servicing clients in over 40 countries.
Together, the Rawson family represents over 100 years of experience in the international trade in the textile and plastics industry.
