Milliken Carpet and its hospitality division provide broadloom and modular carpet in a large variety of bold colors and vibrant designs for all types of hospitality spaces including hotels and casinos. Milliken is dedicated to its clients, helping them select from any of Milliken’s signature designs or helping them create one of their own. The company’s high definition digital patterning technology allows designers to produce pattern and custom colors fitting for any new project. With the Design-On-Line system, designers can also go through the design library, which holds more than 2,000 designs. Users can go through different color options, order samples, and get a glimpse of the carpet in a room. Always creating fresh designs, Milliken is very excited about the new Strato collection. “These products bring a new level of texture to patterned carpeting for hospitality,” says Steve Hills, hospitality business manager for Milliken Carpet. Strato is a multi-level loop textured product with a 5/64 gauge construction, which is offered in both broadloom and carpet tile. “We have found NEWH to be a quality organization that we can partner with for networking business and to be involved in worth while programs.” ..... For years, Fabricut Contract has stood behind its products, offering the utmost in safety, quality, affordability, and design. Constantly reinventing itself and its products, Fabricut introduces the FR-One line of over 500 SKUs of technologically advanced fabrics. The collection includes upholstery, sheer, and coverings for beds. This latest introduction from Fabricut is fire-retardant and eco-friendly. The line has undergone both in-house and independent tests and it surpasses the most strict fire standards. Fabricut's Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certification ensures that these fabrics are free of allergenic and carcinogenic dye-stuffs, pesticides, and formaldehyde. The mark the unveiling of the FR-One product, Fabricut has established a three-year endowment to NEWH, awarding interior design students who meet the NEWH scholarship criteria. "Fabricut has had a long and rewarding relationship with NEWH," says Harvey Nudelman, Fabricut’s president. "As a corporate sponsor, we have worked on many ‘give back projects’ and enjoyed the close relationship that improves our understanding of the hospitality industry. NEWH members are sincere, hard-working, and make a difference for many that want to enter this field." ..... Burtco is a leading manufacturer of soft surface floorcovering. The company revolutionized TAPISTRON technology. Since the hospitality industry is Burtco's main focus, two new tufting machines were recently installed to service the hospitality industry—the Multi Level Cut/Loop (MLCL) and an Infinity Pattern Machine. Both of these machines make patterned carpet for guestrooms, corridors, and other public spaces. At the HD Boutique Expo in September in Miami, Burtco will be showing the newly developed wool-pom box with 200 colors. “The wool-pom box is directed at our Computerized Yarn Placement (CYP) program, but it can also be used for carpet on all of our patterned carpet machinery,” says Bob Kokoszka, president of Burtco. A new pattern catalogue will also be launched, showing guestroom patterns and bordered corridor patterns from Burtco's newest equipment. “We are proud and pleased to associate Burtco with NEWH because the NEWH organization has proven to have a very unifying effect on the hospitality industry. NEWH has devoted itself to many good causes like the scholarship program and the networking experiences and the educational regional meetings," says Kokoszka. “To me NEWH has proven to be a very powerful organization to get things done as is witnessed by the huge success of the Hospitality Design shows in both Las Vegas and Miami. From my personal view, I feel that NEWH has helped Burtco to be recognized as a viable supplier to the hospitality industry. We look forward to a lasting relationship with the NEWH organization." ..... For almost 70 years, Ulster has been known for quality of design, service, and innovation. Ulster was the pioneer in application of the electronic jacquard to Axminster weaving and the UniweaveTM system revolutionized the woven carpet industry. The company’s new patented PSYLO weaving technology goes well beyond the capabilities of the electronic jacquard and after 200 years, the jacquard is finally an obsolete technology in Axminster weaving. All of Ulster’s electronic jacquards have been scrapped and after a substantial investment program in new PSYLO looms and other equipment, Ulster is the only manufacturer where every loom can weave more than 20 colors in complex designs with no pattern restrictions and total design freedom. “Our commitment to design is matched by our dedication to production quality which has earned Ulster ISO 9001 certification for our quality systems,” says Christine Kennicott of Ulster, the first Axminster weaving company in the world to be accredited with the ISO 14001 Environmental Management Award. “Firstly, Ulster believes in the objectives of NEWH and we see our sponsorship as a tangible way of demonstrating support and giving back something to the industry that we serve,” says John Louw, president of Ulster Carpet. “Ulster's philosophy is that partnerships and longterm relationships are fundamental to business. In being a corporate partner of NEWH, Ulster achieves visibility with NEWH members and therefore the partnership is truly beneficial to both parties.” 42 september 2007 tel 800.593.NEWH
