Kunshan Xiefu New Material, a China-based producer of PU coated fabric for global markets, has joined INSQIN partner manufacturer programme of Covestro, a leading polymer materials supplier.
 
As part of Covestro's certified manufacturer network, the two companies will collaborate to promote efficient and sustainable PU materials in sectors such as fashion apparel and footwear, a company release said.
 
Under the programme, Covestro will provide world-class technical support to help Xiefu further develop its use of the INSQIN technology. Xiefu will also receive verification of its production processes and management systems via a globally recognised third-party audit. 
 
Launched in July 2015, the INSQIN partner manufacturer programme connects manufacturers and brand owners across the polyurethane (PU)-coated fabric supply chain. Partners must demonstrate an ongoing commitment to sustainability and transparency, using Covestro's waterborne, PU coating technology and industry-leading processes to meet the emerging sustainability needs of brand owners.
 
Duksung, a Korean PU synthetic materials manufacturer, was the first to join the programme. Xeifu has new become the second partner company, as well as the first Chinese company to join the programme.
 
“A growing number of brands and retailers are becoming interested in sourcing sustainable materials, and further, they need more assurances about the origins and integrity of those materials. INSQIN was developed to link these brands with manufacturers capable of efficiently delivering innovative materials and sustainability best practice,” said Nick Smith, global head of Textile Coatings, Covestro. “We are proud to welcome Xiefu to the programme and look forward to supporting the growth of sustainable PU-coated textiles for the fashion apparel and footwear market worldwide.”
 
“Xiefu is committed to customer-centric innovation and sustainability to serve the world's most demanding brands. We are pleased to be recognised as a key partner of Covestro, with the technology, processes and skills to deliver exciting new PU products through sustainable manufacturing,” said Sun Guohao, chairman of Kunshan Xiefu New Material Company.
 
“As a mark of our quality and professionalism, our validation as an INSQIN partner manufacturer will help bring new business opportunities by connecting us with brand owners and retailers that want to source sustainable PU-coated materials,” Guohao added. (RKS)
