Hollingsworth & Vose (H&V) and Midwest Textiles have established a master distribution agreement to support long-term growth of embroidery materials and other specialty products.  Under the agreement, H&V will supply Midwest with materials, and Midwest will use their specialty converting and nationwide distribution network to reach the growing market.

“This agreement will enable H&V to focus on our core strengths of developing and manufacturing the most advanced materials, while utilising Midwest’s proven distribution expertise to provide the service and reach we need to grow sustainably for the foreseeable future.  We believe that combining the strengths of our two companies will create value for customers and give us a competitive edge in this growing marke,” said Josh Ayer, division president of H&V’s engine and industrial business.

“This agreement with H&V gives Midwest Textiles the scale to compete effectively anywhere in the country while maintaining and improving the individualised service that has made us what we are today.  This agreement complements our recent investments in converting and distribution and ensures a secure supply of the best materials in the business as we plan our growth for a new generation,” said Larry Pratte, president of Midwest Textiles.

The broad-based distribution agreement follows a joint effort by the two companies earlier this year to sell ready-to-sew face mask kits to the general public that include Midwest’s fabric and H&V’s filtration media. This new agreement establishes an ongoing distribution platform that could eventually support expansion into additional products and markets.

H&V is a global manufacturer of advanced materials used in filtration, battery and industrial applications. H&V’s advanced materials contribute to a cleaner world through their use in products that provide clean air, clean liquids and energy storage. Family-owned for seven generations, the company is headquartered in East Walpole, Massachusetts. 

Since 1994, Midwest Textiles & Supplies has been a leading provider of quality quilting fabric, embroidery supplies, & custom converting for industrial & wholesale markets.  Located in Potosi, Missouri and with one of the largest in-stock inventories nationwide, Midwest is ready and able to meet your needs.
