Global Fibre Technologies’ subsidiary EcoTek 360 and Regent Apparel have joined hands to develop a sustainable line of corporate uniforms. The two have signed a development agreement in this connection. EcoTek 360 has developed a proprietary mechanical and eco-friendly process to resolve the problem of textile landfill waste in the corporate uniform market.

“Global Fibre Technologies and Regent Apparel have now begun that process to bring true sustainability to both the uniform apparel and napery segments of the textile industry. Recently, EcoTek 360 took delivery of the collective uniforms of several Regent clients. We are now in the process of helping Regent rejuvenate them back into new corporate uniforms for sale to their customers,” stated Paul Serbiak, CEO of Global Fibre Technologies.

EcoTek 360 has developed the way to resolve the problems of textile landfill waste with its proprietary mechanical and eco-friendly process for the corporate uniform market.

“Regent Apparel is a great partner for us. They are a highly respected 100-year-old uniform manufacturer very much aligned with us on creating a true 360-degree circular economy for their products. They are forward thinking and driven to create a solution with us to solve the problem of disposing end-of-life uniforms into landfills,” Serbiak said.

“Utilising the strengths of each company we will tailor a sustainability solution that meets the needs in the hospitality industry,” stated Serbiak.

Chris Giordano, Global’ s president and chairman stated, “Both companies share the same common goal. To keep textile-waste out of the landfills and incinerators. Our development programme with Regent Apparel will run a handful of months. Once the programme has been completed, we can then look at the commercial viability and a potential long-range programme with Regent.”

“The Regent opportunity will validate our years of R and D in the sustainability arena and allow us to have a first mover advantage. With our pending patents it would not only garner credibility for the truly disruptive nature of our technology, but also create an effective moat around our business model. This could lead to exponential and unchallenged growth in the $15 billion dollar market for corporate uniforms in North America,” Giordano added.
