We work with some really cool companies

From the majestic Yankee Clipper ships of the 1800’s to the first manned Apollo space flight, Gladding Braided Products has been asked to supply this country with the best in braided materials.  We have grown—will continue to grow—in ways our founder, B.F. Gladding, couldn’t possibly have imagined in 1816 when he bought his first house-powered braider.  Yet Gladding has maintained B. F.’s original commitment to excellence without losing sight of what we do best.  We are a braid manufacturer; that’s what our people know; that’s what our 200+ braiders know how to do best.  Since 1816 we’ve been focused on one thing—Braided Products.
