One of this textile firm’s brands, Liddell, supplied linens at the beginning of the last century to the Titanic. Today, the Blackburn firm provides bed linen, towels and bathrobes to some of the world’s most famous hotels, such as the Burj Al Arab in Dubai. Other brands include Hilden, Lissadell, Whitakers, and Vision Assurance, supplying hotels, the public sector and retailers. Financier Daniel Wright, 42, bought out his family’s textile business, Cohen and Chapman, in 2005 and has since built the group through acquisitions, with overseas sales reaching £7m in 2013.
