MMI Attends SHOT Show 2016

by Debbie 26. January 2016 15:10

 

 Another year of SHOT Show is under our belt. The MMI team traveled to Las Vegas for the annual show focusing on all things shooting, hunting, and outdoors. We enjoy coming together with people from our industry, learning new things, and getting to tell the rest of the world about the exciting things going on in the MMI offices. Not to mention, getting out of Cleveland in January is not something we usually pass up.  This year at SHOT, we focused on showing off a few different things including:

Wolf Gray
Unequal® Military
PenCott™ Camo 
Our vast line of military fabrics 

 

All of these things are widely popular throughout the industry and we were even able to spot a few items at SHOT Show 2016 that we had a hand in producing. These boots were made with PenCott™ Camouflage that we provided. It's pretty exciting for us to see end products that we had a part of like these boots. Additionally, we can provide hardware, labels, and rope and cord


If we didn’t get the chance to see you at SHOT, we would love the opportunity to get the chance to talk with you about the new, exciting, and innovative things happening at MMI Textiles, Inc
. As you may know, our first priority is customer service and getting you the best product as quickly and as simply as possible. Call us at 440.899.8050 or shoot us an email at info@mmitextiles.com to get in touch or find out how we can help you.
