Innovation, Quality and Service

Established in 1981, Cobra is a family run company now in its fourth generation. Innovation, quality and service have allowed Cobra to develop a strong reputation as a leading manufacturer of braiding machinery.

Cobra manufactures and supplies braiding machines and equipment to a wide range of markets including heavy vehicles, aerospace, medical, engineering, and narrow fabrics. 95% of the braiding machines Cobra manufactures are exported overseas to countries such as the USA, Mexico, Europe, Russia, China, Japan, and Australia. Cobra takes great pride in every machine that leaves the factory for all export markets. Our customer base ranges from the Fortune 500, Japanese multinationals, European international companies, employee-owned businesses to owner-managed companies. Cobra‘s experience in overseas markets gives us the tools to make shipping to our customers easier and simpler.
