expand its customer base and growth potential.Sympatex will collaborate with Pakatex Co. Ltd. for
the leisurewear market, and with Kolon TTA Inc. for the activewear market for local production and
distribution of a collection of laminates.We decided on a collaborative venture with these two
firms [because] they have enormous expertise when it comes to fabric quality and excellent contacts
in the industry, said Peter Mugge, managing director, Sympatex. By the same token, our brand is
treated with huge respect [in Korea], so this high-quality production venture will also increase
the profile of our Korean partners.
