Trimera to open seamless and warp knitting centres soon
Feb '12
Trimera Group has announced that after over a year of investments in an owned production facility, they will be officially launching the Montreal-based development and production center, Catalyst I, in March 2012, along with a North Carolina-based facility also focused on domestic production and development. Both facilities will offer state of the art design centers for on-site development, as well as the latest in seamless knitting innovations.

Trimera Group has worked in the last year to commercialize products for customers using both its seamless and warp knit capabilities. Product capabilities will continue to be across innerwear and activewear, with plans to launch the revolutionary technology into swimwear as well. One of the foundational values of both Catalyst I and II is the concept of co-creation and collaboration between supplier and customer or brand to reduce time to commercialize, test and launch products.

The Montreal-based, Catalyst I, has been producing circular knits for over ten years; primarily under its own brands and private labels. The recent renovations and upgrades will allow this facility to support domestic production for brands looking to deliver speed and proximity to market, reducing greatly the time to develop seamless products and allowing customers to work on-site to commercialize designs.

Through the North Carolina-based facility, Catalyst II, Trimera Group will develop and produce warp knit seamless as well as a new circular knit technology. Warp knit seamless will revolutionize seamless apparel and performance products by increasing the opportunities to knit with amazing intricacy and at the same time improving the performance and greatly reducing the need for sewing. This technology offers the benefits of circular knitting to reduce seams, chafing points and varying levels of compression and breathability within one garment, as well as the benefits of improved stretch, recovery and durability.

Amit Tal, President of Trimera Group commented, “Trimera Group has dedicated a lot of time, effort and made significant investments into both of these facilities to produce the best products and deliver on a local for local, speed to market strategy that we know is increasingly important to customers looking to react quicker to their customers' needs as well as reducing their own global footprint when possible. Co-creation and collaboration is at the heart of this project as we know that alongside our customers we can each leverage our expertise and knowledge to build the best products.”

Based in Montreal, Quebec, Trimera Group is recognized as a leader in wholesale, retail and manufacturing across the U.S., Canada and Israel, as well as a portfolio of Company-owned brands with strong global performance.
