Nextec Opens Manufacturing Facility In Singapore

Vista, Calif.-based Nextec Applications Inc. has opened a new manufacturing plant in Singapore. The high-tech facility is part of Nextecs global strategy, which also includes establishing future plants in Japan.The Nextec® encapsulation process has many applications in such areas as performance clothing, medical and protective clothing, industrial composites and electronics. Water repellency, wind resistance, packability, durability and breathability are all improved by Nextecs patented process (See Quality Fabric Of The Month, TI, August 2001).The majority of our fabrics come from Asia, where our customers are using our patented encapsulation process in their material to manufacture their end products, said Peter Ellman, president and CEO. Our Singapore facility will allow us to improve customer service and decrease the time it takes us to deliver our products.Our new plant will have the initial capacity to produce more than 6.6 million linear yards of fabric per year, dramatically increasing our ability to grow and serve our customers, he added.
