Samil to expand Defender M fabric

TenCate Protective Fabrics has signed an agreement with Samil Spinning Co. Ltd. in Seoul, Korea, to become a TenCate Defender M partner. The partners have the objective of expanding the TenCate Defender M product portfolio in the South Korean military and police market.

As the world's leading supplier of protective fabrics, TenCate is pleased to have entered into partnership with Samil Spinning. Samil is currently providing non-FR fabrics to the South Korean military and there is high interest in expanding their offering to include TenCate Defender M with its inherently FR properties and worldwide reputation as the FR choice for military applications.

Vertical Integration
Samil operates state-of-the-art spinning operations as well as dyeing and finishing facilities and will, in some cases, licensed manufacture fabric from start to finish in South Korea. TenCate Defender M is ideal for the Korean Military as well as civilian police forces. Efforts will be focused on the manufacture, sales and marketing of TenCate Defender M in the South Korean market. TenCate Defender M manufactured in South Korea will be sold and used there and will not reach the US market.

Samil Spinning, an established partner with Lenzing Fibers, is well positioned to make TenCate Defender M with Lenzing FR fiber as its primary component. The alliance is a valuable opportunity for growth in the South Korean market and is one that will ensure continuity of quality and protective performance of TenCate Defender M.

TenCate Defense & Tactical is a business unit of TenCate Protective Fabrics, world leader in the design, development, production and commercialization of protective and safety fabrics for industry, services, firefighting and defense.
