Back to the Basics...

by Annie 23. June 2015 11:43

The textile industry is a versatile one, with new fabrics and products emerging all the time. It can be easy to forget the things that give MMI Textiles, Inc. and the rest of the historic fabric industry such a strong background and solid base.

Because words like “cotton”, “nylon”, and “Cordura” are used so frequently, they are often looked past and their importance taken for granted. MMI Textiles supplies only the best cottons and nylons in different kinds, deniers, and colors.

New innovations like digital printing and high-tech laminations are what enhances the textile industry and keeps it growing. Balancing these new innovations with the robust, already-existing market for woven fabrics is what MMI does best. With over 80 years of experience with woven fabrics, MMI Textiles has mastered how to continue growing its woven fabric inventory while introducing new and exciting products, prints, and ways of production.

by Debbie 22. May 2015 12:31

 

Aiken, South Carolina – SEAMS, the National Association for the U.S. Sewn Products Industry, announces the formation of a new SEAMS Government Committee designed to inform and support its membership on doing business with federal, state and local governments. Launched earlier this year, the committee is chaired by Geoff Senko of MMI Textiles Inc., a supplier of specialty textiles and related components to the private and public sectors. Other founding committee leaders includes Jack Foster of Sterlingwear of Boston, Jeff Papalia of the National Industries for the Blind, Mary Reardon of Tweave LLC and Gary Whited of SourceAmerica.

 

According to Committee Chairperson Geoff Senko, “Our committee aims to expand SEAMS members’ knowledge in identifying, securing and maintaining government contracts; thereby expanding production opportunities and capabilities for our members. As we become a recognized resource for informing and connecting our members with this market, we also expect to attract more U.S.-based manufacturers and government agencies to participate in SEAMS events and membership.”

 

“SEAMS is excited with the networking and business-building potential this government and military focused committee brings to our membership,” added SEAMS Executive Director Sarah Friedman. “The fact that members already doing business with the government are willing to help other members learn about these opportunities highlights the industry growth and collaboration focus that has long been a defining advantage of the SEAMS Association. This serves as a reminder that, regardless of where your company fits in the supply chain, you can benefit from participation in SEAMS.”  

 

Participation in the SEAMS Government Committee is open to all interested SEAMS members. Textile and sewn products professionals interested in learning more about the committee are invited to phone the SEAMS office at +1-803-642-1111.

Considering Digital Fabric Printing? Here Are Four Questions To Ask Yourself

by Debbie 12. May 2015 08:00

If you’ve been on our blog over the past few months, you may have noticed that we now offer digital fabric printing services.

Sure, it’s a pretty big change for our company, but the reason behind it is simple: our success has always been based in our focus to make our customers’ lives easier. Digital fabric printing is a technology that does just that. 

Here’s why:

  1. It reduces your financial risk. Not sure which fabric is best-suited to your job? Have a new idea you want to do a test run for? Digital printing minimums are as little as 10 yards. In other words, you don’t have to spend as much money to find the best fabric for the job.
  2. Shorter turnaround time. Dealing with a time crunch? Digital printing runs can happen in as little as two weeks.
