Polartec, Andover, Mass., recently introduced a Ready to Roll program — featuring in stock, first-quality Polartec fabrics that are ready to be shipped. “Customers have long asked for in-stock inventory without the standard production lead times, and this announcement enables rapid order fulfillment in time for fall/winter 2019 production to meet increased demand,” said Gary Smith, Polartec CEO.
According to the company, Ready to Roll includes premium Polartec fabrics in most of the
popular styles as well as more rare styles — such as cooling, insulating and flame resistant technologies — and hard-to-find colors.
The Ready to Roll program is an extension of Polartec Eco-Engineering™, the company’s process for deploying recycled and biodegradable inputs, advanced production techniques, efficient logistics and rigorous testing and certifications.
The company also recently upgraded its production capacity to meet high demand for shearling and Sherpa fleece fabrics.
