VANCOUVER, British Columbia —September 17, 2014 — Garmatex Technologies Inc., an inventor of intelligent fabric and apparel technologies, has announced the start of a two year supplier agreement with New Era Cap, an international lifestyle brand that is best known for being the official on-field cap for Major League Baseball and the National Football League. The partnership will see a new generation of fabric technologies from Garmatex incorporated into an upcoming line of New Era headwear.
“We are very excited to announce that we will be working with New Era,” said Martin Doane, Garmatex’s CEO. “This agreement marks our first step into headwear and really demonstrates that there are a number of market segments for our unique fabric technologies besides just apparel. We look forward to working with the global leader in this industry and towards providing ingredient solutions that will enhance wearer performance.”
This partnership marks Garmatex’s first foray into the headwear industry — a segment that boasts estimated US revenues of over $2 billion annually.
Look for New Era headwear featuring fabrics powered by Garmatex to be available next year.
