Nonwovens / Technical Textiles

ITA, Batra Form Alliance

Technical textiles consultancy Industrial Textile Associates (ITA), Greer, S.C., is partnering with Dr. Subhash K. Batra of SKBA — Charles A. Cannon Professor, Emeritus, at Raleigh, N.C.-based North Carolina State University's (NCSU's) College of Textiles, and director emeritus of NCSU's Nonwovens Cooperative Research Center — to focus on technical textiles and engineered fiber-based product production and applications. ITA/SKBA will offer studies and technical consultations as well as assistance to companies participating in the technical textiles marketplace, and also may give rise to new conferences targeting specific industry segments.

"With the difficult economic and changing times, it is imperative that companies thoroughly evaluate their operation and their plans to move forward, prepared for the inevitable recovery," said William C. "Bill" Smith, principal and founder, ITA. "ITA/SKBA can be of value in that process with unbiased viewpoints that only a small, dedicated and experienced consulting firm can provide. Providing practical and company-focused recommendations will be our strength."
