APJeT, VF Corp tie up for finishing technology
May '15
Industry leader in atmospheric plasma technology, APJeT, Inc. has announced it will work with another US firm - VF Corporation, a leader in branded lifestyle apparel, footwear and accessories, to explore potential uses for its textile finishing technology.

The technology, which adds high performance finishes to fabrics without the use of water or heat, is part of a program to help VF test next generation manufacturing processes for greater flexibility within its supply chain, APJet said in a statement.

“Our work with VF is a response to the need for technology-based solutions that improve the textile manufacturing process,” said APJeT CEO John Emrich. “We see incredible opportunities for waterless applications of finishes and look forward to exploring these possibilities with VF.”

The collaboration between APJeT and VF is a result of VF’s Global Innovation Center strategy. VF operates three centers in the US employing teams of scientists, engineers, designers and other experts to develop advancements in apparel, footwear and accessories for its 30-plus brands.

“We are obsessed with creating innovative, compelling products that exceed consumer expectations,” said Dan Cherian, vice president, VF’s Global Innovation Centers. “Through partnering with APJeT, we believe the long-term potential to reduce our reliance on conventional manufacturing processes and advance our product innovation agenda will be greatly enhanced.” (SH)
