The Manufacturing Solutions Center and the Textile Technology Center are receiving contracts from the Advanced Functional Fabrics of America (AFFOA}, tightening the partnership between these two important resources for the industry. The directors of the centers—Sam Buff for the Textile Technology Center and Dan St. Louis for the MSC—are working closely to offer comprehensive testing and prototyping for new products that could have implications for the U.S. Department of Defense.
Our legislative agenda will include resources to expand the capabilities of the centers without duplications. This will be a busy year for the Hosiery and Textiles Governmental Affairs Council to protect and enhance the momentum of manufacturing and its economy.
The HTGAC membership season begins this month as a new election cycle cranks up. We look forward to your partnership with us. Encourage other companies to join us.
