Crypton Licenses Richloom To Manufacture, Distribute Fabric In China

West Bloomfield, Mich.-based Crypton Inc. — a producer of eco-friendly performance fabrics
featuring stain-, odor- and microbe-repelling technology — has signed a licensing agreement with
New York City-based Richloom Fabrics Group, a supplier of home décor products, for the production
of Crypton Super Fabrics in China. Richloom also will distribute Crypton fabrics in Asia, Europe
and the Middle East.

Crypton reports there is significant demand in China for its fabrics, but the shipping cost
and time involved with sending its products to Asia makes access to the products difficult for
Chinese manufacturers. 

“This licensing agreement allows Crypton to meet the growing global demand for Crypton
high-performance fabrics, and it represents a significant growth opportunity for our customers and
business partners,” said Crypton Co-founder Randy Rubin. “The decision to select Richloom was based
on the company’s years of experience and because it was best suited to incorporate Crypton’s
proprietary manufacturing processes.”
