Upholstery & Trim Group to join ATA
T
he Advanced Textiles Association (formerly IFAI) announced that the
Upholstery & Trim Group (UTG) with its members are joining the ATA.
UTG membership is comprised of manufacturers and distributors of
fabrics and accessories for applications in the automotive, marine, industrial
and contract markets.
" We are so glad to have the Upholstery & Trim Group and its members
joining ATA, " says Steve Schiffman, ATA CEO and president. " The opportunity
to integrate UTG companies into ATA's existing divisions just makes sense
and allows us to have a deeper connection to the upholstery and trim markets.
Former UTG members will continue to receive full membership benefits and
value as ATA members. "
According to Brian Joyner, chairman of the Upholstery and Trim Group,
UTG's mission is to protect and advance the interests of businesses providing
aftermarket products and services to all their markets. UTG educates, informs,
serves and provides networking opportunities for companies that manufacture
or distribute interior and exterior fabrics, associated hardware and other
specialty products.
" The Upholstery & Trim Group is extremely excited to join forces with ATA, "
says Joyner. " After an extensive search process, ATA emerged as the clear winner.
It is a well-run organization and offers many unique benefits to its members.
Our executive committee felt that it will add tremendous value to our members.
We are looking forward to a long-term partnership, starting with our annual
convention in Las Vegas in November. "
UTG's annual convention focuses on building relationships between the premier
trim wholesalers and exhibitors in the auto industry. This year's Upholstery &
Trim Annual Convention is scheduled for November at the Westgate Las Vegas
Resort and Casino.
CEMEX, S.A.B. de C.V. ( " CEMEX " )
announced that it has successfully
tested a process that converts flue gases
emitted by the cement kiln into carbon
nanomaterials, thereby transforming
" bad " carbon into " good " carbon. Due
to their unique mechanical, thermal,
electrical, and chemical properties,
carbon nanomaterials have several
potential applications in a wide array
of industries, from construction to
biomedicine. Thus, the proposed
technology can turn CO2 emissions
into a value-added product, achieving
a circular process that is key to
sustainable development.
Bemis Associates, a manufacturer of
thermoplastic films, tapes, and adhesives
for textiles, announced that it has
acquired Protechnic, a France-based
company manufacturing bio-based
adhesives. Protechnic will operate as a
wholly owned subsidiary of Bemis and
will maintain their name, brand and
leadership structure.
Avient Corporation announced that it
has entered into an agreement with
Royal DSM ( " DSM " ) to purchase the
DSM Protective Materials business (the
" Dyneema business " ). The purchase
price of $1.485 billion is subject to certain
customary adjustments. In conjunction
with this proposed acquisition, Avient
has also announced that it plans to
explore sale options for its Avient
Distribution business. The acquisition
has been approved by the Boards of
Directors at both Avient and DSM and
is expected to close later this year,
subject to the satisfaction of customary
closing conditions.
18 SPECIALTY FABRICS REVIEW / July 2022
Klopman, a European company in the
production of workwear fabrics and with
its headquarters in Italy, is promoting a
circular economy project that promises
to revolutionize textiles at the end of
their first lifecycle. The goal is to achieve
significant energy savings and localize
the supply chain in Europe, currently 85%
dependent on non-European countries.
The aim is to produce a regenerated
fabric with a premium fiber able to have
the same life cycle of a virgin produced
fabric. In Europe only 1% of old clothes
are currently being regenerated and put
back on the market as new, and 85% are
burned or dumped.
EURATEX has launched its EU-Ukraine
Textile Initiative (EUTI), which aims
at facilitating cooperation between
European and Ukrainian textile and
apparel companies. EUTI offers a single
contact point for Ukrainian companies
who seek support and cooperation with
EU counterparts, and vice versa. That
connection will be helpful to match
supply and demand (e.g. there are
many requests for supplies of fabrics),
engage in public procurement, and offer
company-to-company support. The
service will be coordinated by EURATEX
in close cooperation with UKRLEGPROM,
Ukrainian Association of Enterprises of
Textile & Leather Industry.
