The purchase includes the Balson Hercules name.The company, now run as a wholly owned subsidiary of Duro, is called Balson Hercules/Duro Inc. William Milowitz, former senior vice president of apparel and textile operations, Consoltex, has joined Duro as president of the new subsidiary. John Iason, former vice president of apparel linings, Consoltex, has also joined Duro.Duro has been greatly strengthened in recent months with new financing and new business, and we saw this as a very desirable opportunity to protect and expand our market position, said Andre Laus, president and CEO, Duro. Its a big win for us. We gain the knowledge and experience of excellent industry people like William Milowitz and John Iason, as well as business from some of the countrys best names in apparel.
