  • Project Management

    There are times when customers are looking for “the whole package.” We can produce a fabric, have it laminated, cut and sewn, and even packaged (depending on your needs). Between our own in house capabilities and our relationships with other laminators and cut and sew houses, we would love the opportunity to find the most efficient and cost effective way to complete your project or product.

  • Final Inspection / Packaging / Shipping

    Shipping includes final inspection, slitting, roll up and shipping. Our equipment can be adapted to accommodate different sizes of cores, slit various width options, work with multiple rolls, and monitor and record bow and skew of jacquard patterns at roll up. We have experience shipping large and small international or domestic shipments for any size customer anywhere in the world.

  • Padding / Treatments / Coatings

    Anti-microbial, DWR, anti-pilling FR treatments and coatings to provide stability are some of the services we can provide. We have the ability to heat-set fabrics or apply very heavy coatings depending upon your end use and specifications.
