INEOS joined forces with Ben Ainslie to form INEOS Britannia in April 2018 in an unprecedented effort to bring the trophy back to Britain for the first time since the competition was established in 1851. The INEOS family also includes the iconic British clothing brand Belstaff, Grenadier by INEOS Automotive, INEOS Hygienics and a wider sporting family which includes the Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 Team, the INEOS Grenadiers cycling team, the All Blacks, and football clubs OGC Nice and FC Lausanne-Sport.
For close to a century Belstaff has been making clothes for men and women who want more from life, to push the limits.
Technically excellent, beautifully crafted British design and know-how is at the heart of what we do, and our clothes are beyond fashion but always in style, innately cool and appealing to men and women who are used to going the extra mile and living life on their own terms.
Our iconic jackets had the back of everyone from aviator Amy Johnson to adventurer TE Lawrence and revolutionary Che Guevara. We still make those jackets today - and we still kit out some of the world's most questing individuals - but we make much more besides. Rigorously designed, effortlessly good-looking and built for life: Belstaff is for people who don't think getting dressed is the most important thing they’ll do that day.
A new automotive brand with an uncompromising vision, INEOS Automotive is on track to produce its first off-road vehicle by the end of 2020, in time for the 36th America’s Cup.
The brainchild of INEOS Chairman Sir Jim Ratcliffe, a keen adventurer and a lifelong fan of rugged 4x4s, ‘Grenadier’ has come a long way since the idea was first conceived in The Grenadier pub in London in 2017.
Built in the spirit of 4x4 pioneers such as the Willys Jeep, the Grenadier is on course to deliver a British-inspired and designed, expertly engineered 4x4 that’s just at home pulling a plough, leading an expedition or driving up to Buckingham Palace.

Established in Manchester in 1963, Henri-Lloyd is a story based on the principles and vision of our founder Henri Strzelecki, an innovator, and a true original who created revolutionary designs and techniques.

For decades these innovative Henri-Lloyd products enabled the pioneering circumnavigators of the world Sir Francis Chichester, Sir Alec Rose and Sir Ranulph Fiennes (to name just a few) to achieve truly amazing firsts. Then in the 1980’s, the brands world changed forever when the Milanese Paninaro adopted the Consort Original Jacket as part of their uniform and Henri-Lloyd was catapulted into the world of fashion as it became a staple of the newly emerging Italian Sportswear market.
Times have changed since the company was born in the 1960’s, but Henri’s principles still burn brightly to this day and we still passionately believe in going our own way. It is that pioneering spirit that stays with us, it’s a world where function and design can work together, setting new standards for “Responsible Performance” products with a conscience for the planet and oceans we love.
