Business & Financial Update

Regular readers of Textile World will notice some changes to the long-running Business & Financial column in future issues.

TW’s long time Economics Editor Robert S. Reichard has announced after many years of service to the industry that he intends to cut back on his contributions to TW magazine and begin a semi-retirement from the Textile Industries Media Group, LLC. As such, TW editors currently are working with Reichard to redesign an extended Textile Barometers data page, which should be ready for publication in the March/April issue.

“Bob has been a great contributor to the magazine and his monthly commentary will be missed,” said Jim Borneman, TW’s owner and publisher. “Luckily, Bob has agreed to continue aggregating the textile economic data indicators that are widely used by the industry, and those indicators will be presented in an expanded format.”

“Bob is well respected in the textile industry and hopefully TW editors can convince him to tap into that long economic history for a look into his famed crystal ball in the future,” Borneman added.

Look for the redesigned Textile Barometers in the March/April issue of TW!
