One year after being acquired by a private equity group, the leadership at Propex Operating Company, LLC, says that the emerging economic recovery will find the company ideally positioned to leverage its global and U.S. assets for optimal growth and profitability. Propex is a global leader in the development, design and manufacturing of brands and products for its customers. The business is grouped into four operating units including Geosynthetics, Performance Technologies, Concrete Solutions and Furnishing Solutions.

"Propex has achieved and maintained its historical market dominance by investing in the development of innovative technology, building on its core competencies of scientific know-how and manufacturing operations excellence, and ultimately, delivering sustainable solutions to our customers," says David L. Gartshore, vice president of sales for Propex Furnishing Solutions division, which is responsible for the company's sales of primary and secondary backings for the carpet industry.

Specifically, Gartshore points to Propex's extensive on-the-ground resources, research and development expertise, and comprehensive product offering, including the industry's most recognized brands Actionbac and Polybac carpet backing products. He adds that the availability of experienced sales and technical support as well as manufacturing operations and distribution centers centrally located to the carpet industry give Propex a competitive edge in terms of manufacturing flexibility and customer response.

In its first year under new management, Propex introduced Polybac EX3 Advantage, an eco-efficient primary backing that offers improved performance while using 33% fewer natural materials. Gartshore says, "As the largest independent backing producer in the industry, Propex has an unparalleled history of product design and innovation." He predicted that the company's robust development efforts will result in several product introductions in 2010 that will further Propex's commitment to sustainability and contribute to the strength of its current market-leading brands. This first year of new management also saw the company strengthen its leadership position with the addition of several key management roles.

Gartshore's optimism about the future of Propex is echoed at all levels of corporate management. At the company's first international sales meeting held recently in Chattanooga, Tennessee, Executive Vice President Ralph Bruno said Propex is "creating sustainable health in each of the company's business segments, which ensures our customers that that we are a strong, long-term supplier they can rely on to help grow their business."
