TeXtreme was presented as the winner in the Fiberrik competition, a national competition for innovations in technical textiles in Sweden.

The jury motivated its decision as follows:
“The product of the winning entry fulfils the criteria of the competition well. It is a highly innovative and all textile product within the field of technical textiles with great market potential, now and in the future. The product has already come a long way in its development and commercialisation. This technical textile can be used to produce lighter, firmer and stronger composites to a low cost.

Through this new product, producers of airplanes, extreme cars, bikes, kayaks and hockey sticks are able to manufacture products with a new characteristic look and improved qualities, such as enhanced performance and low weight.”

This is a great recognition and we are happy that the jury can see as great potential in our product as we do – says Andreas Josefsson, VP Business Development at Oxeon AB. The price money, 200 000 SEK, will be used for further developments within the company who according to Josefsson are developing both the unique weaving technology further as well as new products.
