Engineered Solutions Acquires Rocan's Assets

Engineered Solutions PLLC — a Charlottesville, Va.-based provider of textile research and consulting services for the textile, apparel and related industries — has purchased the intellectual and technical assets of Rocan Inc. — a Greensboro, N.C.-based provider of consultant and technology management services for the textile, apparel, and related industries. The acquisition includes a technical library containing a collection of reference files and publications relating to the flammability of textiles.
Engineered Solutions and Rocan Inc. partnered in 2009 to expand research services and a range of technical services related to textile product flammability. Rocan’s founder, Clyde T. Canter, has retired but will continue to serve as an advisor to Engineered Solutions, and its president, Hardy Poole. 
Engineered Solutions’ laboratory in Burlington, N.C., is equipped to perform microscopy and chemical analysis of textile materials as well as flammability testing in accordance with government and voluntary industry standards.
