Erik Nees has been hired by Aurora Specialty Textiles Group, a leader in coating, dyeing, and finishing of both woven and non-woven fabrics headquartered in the US, as sales account manager. In this role, he will oversee industrial sales, which includes working with new and current customers in the tape, bedding, medical, and technical textiles industries.

Nees worked at Alice Manufacturing from 1992 until the end of 2018, when Alice Manufacturing, also known as Alice Mills, closed doors. “Nees brings a high degree of professional salesmanship to ASTG and an extensive background in the textile industry. We are very excited to have Erik join our sales team and look forward to working with him and introducing him to our current and future customers during Techtextil NA,” Dan LaTurno, president of Aurora said in a press release.

At Techtextil NA, Nees and Aurora senior management will be on hand to discuss Aurora’s state-of-the-art manufacturing capabilities, quick turn-around times and cost-effective wide-width finishing and bleaching capabilities.

“I’m delighted to join the team at Aurora. I’m impressed with their new facility as well as their commitment to innovation and continual efforts to meet their customers’ needs. Ultimately, I am very excited for the opportunity to use my 26-plus years of experience in fabric sales, formation and converting to grow Aurora’s customer base,” Nees said.

Aurora has spent the last five years investing in a new state-of-the-art, North American manufacturing operation strategically equipped with next-generation bleaching, finishing, fabric skewing and coating technologies.

That investment is paying off for their customers. With its new technologies, convenient location and streamlined operations, Aurora is ideally poised to help their customers meet and surpass market demand for their products. (GK)
