We have a long history of being an innovative and creative manufacturing solutions provider.

Founded in 1883 as Hope Webbing Company in Pawtucket, RI, USA, today Hope Global has grown to an 650-person, world-wide manufacturer that prides itself on providing not only high-quality products and components but also innovative manufacturing solutions to meet our customers’ needs. We take the word “Global” in our name literally as we have facilities in the USA, Mexico, Czech Republic, China and Brazil allowing us to provide customers with mirror manufacturing for faster distribution and the most cost-effective production. Today our list of manufacturing capabilities include, among other processes: braiding, weaving, knitting and wire draw, cut and sew, and assemblies.

Over the years, while manufacturing has continually improved, matured, modernized and utilized technology, one thing that has remained constant at Hope Global is our goal of being a business partner to our customers rather than just a manufacturing vendor. Every decision we make is based on making a positive impact on our customers’ business. That means being driven to get it done (whatever “it” is) no matter what it takes. For example, as a privately held company, we have a faster route to capital and a willingness to invest in our customers’ needs. Over the years we’ve invested in proprietary machine capabilities, manufacturing processes, new materials and our workforce. That’s what manufacturing business partners do: We put customers’ needs first.
