Prodesco Marks 65 Years In Technical Textiles

Perkasie, Pa.-based Prodesco Inc. — a designer and manufacturer of engineered textile structures for markets such as aerospace, industrial and medical, among others — is celebrating its 65th anniversary in the technical textiles industry.

The company was founded in Perkasie in 1943, creating innovative technical textiles such as the outer layer of astronaut space suits for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s Gemini mission, which included the United States’ first space walk in June 1965. In early 2008, England-based engineered polymer products provider Fenner Plc acquired Prodesco and its wholly owned subsidiary, Secant Medical LLC, a provider of engineered textile solutions for medical device applications.

“Prodesco has spent decades building an organization whose foundations are innovation and customer service, and we are proud of the role our employees have played in creating the business we are today,” said Keith Smith, director of sales and marketing, Prodesco. “We look forward to continuing our tradition of service to Perkasie, the state of Pennsylvania, and the many customers around the world who rely on our technical textile expertise.”

To commemorate the event, Prodesco employees will participate in a day of volunteerism for local and national organizations, as well as an awards ceremony and special presentations.
