Sprayway History Banner

Sprayway was founded in 1974, above a launderette in Chorlton, Greater Manchester, by two young men with a little money in their back pockets who set out to create functional and affordable 4oz PU coated Nylon cagoules for the sailing market

The company is still in operation today. On paper, John and Simon were diametrically opposed, but it all came together when they got to work together. Simon was a numbers and operations whiz, whereas John was a product and marketing whiz; one preferred his tea milky, while the other preferred it strong. While they shared common interests, their complementary individual passions formed the foundation of their relationship and established a tone that is still present at the heart of the brand today.
