About Us

A better quality of life with the high-tech luxury of specialty leather chemistry.

Started in 1942 as Majestic Fabrics, a Boston merchandiser of fashion fabrics for the footwear industry, Majestic added manufacturing capabilities in the 1960s with the acquisition of a laminating company named Windram Manufacturing Company, and moved to Lowell Massachusetts where it changed its name to Majestic International Corporation.

In 1972, the company changed its name to Majilite, taking its name from its premier fabrics products of that time.

By the end of the 1970s, Majilite had grown its business to be one of the premium synthetic leather manufacturers, producing high fashion shoe upper material for the woman’s fashion footwear market.

Majilite was purchased in 1979 from its founders.

In the mid to late 1980s, the footwear manufacturing was leaving the US for lower costs in the Far East, so Majilite added markets in upholstery plus various other markets for its high performance microfiber based coated fabrics.

Majilite purchased the Dracut MA facility in 1994 as a warehouse for its Lowell MA manufacturing operations, enlarged the facility and moved all manufacturing to Dracut in 2004. Majilite also began to market its services as a commission coater, taking Majilite into the electronics, medical and apparel industries.

We evolved into the exclusive producer of proprietary specialty chemistries on microfiber and other substrates for the automotive world. Today, Majilite has optimized its leather chemistries along with a stunning array of colors and patterns in products including the industry standard Nytek® high tech material which outperforms leather.

Majilite’s 165,000 square foot manufacturing facility, located in Dracut MA, outside of Boston, is a leader in sustainability initiatives, including an extensive solar panel farm and state of the art emissions control system. Majilite is an ISO 9001 certified company, is accredited to the Marine Equipment Directive (MED) by Lloyd’s, and is fully compliant with all of the rigorous environmental regulations mandated by state and federal regulations.
