TCR will conduct basic and applied research in all areas of textile wet processing, working with external sources and partners to develop new chemistries to improve performance and aesthetics in cotton products and to reduce processing costs.DFTS will be headed by Louis T. Protonentis. It will provide dyeing and finishing services to the industry and to other departments within Cotton Incorporated.
