Under the agreement, Sonovia and its machinery manufacturing partner, Brückner Textile Machinery, will install an ultrasonic fabric-finishing applicator at Delta Galil’s innovation centre in Karmiel, Israel. It will pilot the application of new, eco-responsible fabric finishes offering antimicrobial protection and other long-lasting benefits to leading global brands that are Delta Galil customers, the two companies said in a joint media release.
Sonovia’s fabric-finishing technology allows brands to sustainably incorporate long-lasting, built-in properties such as antimicrobial and anti-odour protection and water repellence to textiles, while maintaining superior fabric performance. The company’s revolutionary solution embeds particles, compounds and molecules of desired properties directly into textiles, creating a durable, added-value fabric that retains its properties through multiple washings.
The company’s partnership with Delta Galil constitutes a significant landmark in Sonovia’s path to commercialise its technology and strengthens Delta Galil’s position as a global leader in high-performance, sustainable manufacturing innovation, the release said.
“Sonovia’s ultrasonic technology is the future of high-performance and sustainable fabric finishing,” said Gil Shimon, president of global upper markets division for Delta Galil. “This partnership enables us to take another step toward fully sustainable and environmentally friendly manufacturing and we’re extremely pleased to be able to offer our activewear and apparel clients this innovative option for imparting beneficial properties into their garments.”
“This strategic agreement with Delta Galil constitutes a vote of confidence in Sonovia’s eco-friendly, performance fabric-finishing technology from one of the world’s leading manufacturers of activewear and apparel,” said Shuki Herchcovici, chairman and CEO, Sonovia. “I have no doubt that this relationship will yield outstanding results for both companies and I look forward to a long and successful partnership that will support more responsible, sustainable production for many brands.”
