The Warrior Protection and Readiness Coalition (the WPRC) is pleased to announce that three leaders in the textile and protective fabric industry have joined the effort to provide a unified voice for operational readiness and warfighter safety.

As of July 1, 2010, DuPont, the International Textile Group (ITG) and TenCate Protective Fabrics USA (TenCate) are all members of the expanding WPRC. These companies will join with WPRC counterparts in the effort to educate leaders on issues of warfighter protection and enable adequate funding for the development and procurement of first class Operational Clothing and Individual Equipment (OCIE) for American warfighters.

DuPont, ITG and TenCate collectively provide thousands of American manufacturing jobs and supply the U.S. military with the most technologically advanced protective fibers and fabrics in the world. These companies understand both the need to provide American warfighters with the best technology available, and the major role that the OCIE industry plays in the U.S. economy. The WPRC leadership is pleased to count these leading firms as allies in the ongoing effort to better equip and protect American warfighters.

In addition to DuPont, ITG and TenCate, members of the WPRC include ADS Inc., Darn Tough, Insight Technology, Integrated Wave Technologies, London Bridge Trading Company, Milliken, New Balance, Otis, Pelican, Sperian, Surefire, Wiley X and W. L. Gore. Additional leaders in the OCIE industry are expected to join as this effort gains momentum.
