New Dry-Tex lab to support textile innovation
The facility will develop and test new textiles against industry standards, including the sustainability requirements of the bluesign system, of which Dry-Tex is a partner.
“Given the tremendous scope of this undertaking, the Innovation Lab was years in the making, requiring considerable capital and brainpower,” said Andy Dong, president of Dry-Tex. “Since most of our customers are focused on the outdoors, they’re always looking for unrivalled innovations. I’m proud to say Dry-Tex is equipped to provide the innovations they’ve been looking for.”
For his part, Chris Parkes, president of Dry-Tex’s long-term partner Concept III, said: “I believe the Innovation Lab will generate some exciting textiles while also ensuring the high compliance standards Dry-Tex has set for themselves.”
