Five companies receive IDEA10 Achievement Awards
Apr '10
The IDEA10 Achievement Awards, which recognize the best new nonwoven and engineered fabric products introduced in the past three years, were presented in six different categories during a special ceremony on the second day of IDEA10 International Engineered Fabrics Conference and Exposition, April 28, 2010, in Miami Beach, Florida.

The IDEA10 Achievement Awards are co-sponsored by INDA, Association of the Nonwoven Fabrics industry and organizer of the tri-ennial IDEA Expo and Conference, and Nonwovens Industry magazine. They are presented to the leading new products in five separate categories – Equipment, Raw Materials, Roll Goods, Short-Life End Product and Long-Life End Product – as well as a special award in the Entrepreneur category.

Nominated by the industry and chosen by online voting earlier this year, the five winners were:
IDEA10 Machinery/Equipment Achievement Award:
ITW Dynatec: Vector Modular Metering Platform

IDEA10 Fibers/Raw Materials Achievement Award:
Bostik: Relyance Adhesive

IDEA10 Roll Goods Achievement Award:
PGI: Spinlace

IDEA10 Short-Life Converted Product Achievement Award:
Henkel/Dial: Purex Complete 3-in-1 Laundry Sheets

IDEA10 Long-Life Converted Product Achievement Award:
DuPont: Nomex KD

In addition, an IDEA10 Entrepreneurial Achievement Award was presented to Fi-Tech, which in 2009 took the uniquely bold step of forming a joint venture company with Uwe Gaedike, and successfully completing the purchase of Oerlikon Enka Tecnica GmbH.

“IDEA10 is the only place this year that the entire industry is in one place at the same time and it is appropriate that the Achievement Awards be presented here because these companies and individuals have contributed greatly to the advancement of our industry,” said INDA president Holmes. “All of the finalists already have my thanks and appreciation for their contributions to our business in the past three years.”

Added Matt Carey, publisher of Nonwovens Industry, “Like our friends at INDA, we are proud to be able to recognize the companies and individuals that are responsible for the growth of this business and for the success of IDEA10 and of the nonwovens industry.”

In a special moment during the IDEA10 Achievement Awards event, Holmes recognized the accomplishments of former INDA Technical Director Cos Camelio, who passed away in May, 2008, shortly after retiring from the association. The IDEA Lifetime Achievement Award had been presented posthumously to Camelio's wife, Phyllis, at a special event last year. Camelio has also been inducted into the Nonwovens Industry Hall of Fame.

The finalists:
1. Elmarco: Nanospider Production Equipment
2. ITW Dynatec: Vector Modular Metering Platform
