About Us

Who are we?

Lion Haircare, or simply ‘Lion’ as it is more commonly known, is a global manufacturer of Hairnets and major importer of Disposable Protective Wear.

The parent company, A C Gill, was originally founded in 1888 and in 2000, the company’s satellite sites moved to NTG House, under the new Nottingham Textile Group banner.

The business operates primarily through two business segments:

• Lion Disposables – products for use in hygiene critical environments;
• Lion Haircare – supplies to the hair and beauty sector

With import know-how built up over more than 40 years, we are increasingly selected as an outsource partner. We are trusted by some of the world’s largest companies to, source, plan, stock hold and deliver their international requirements for disposable and/or beauty wear.
