Developer of innovative textiles, Duvaltex Inc said it has acquired True Textiles Inc, which includes its business units like True, Guilford of Maine and Teknit.

“Duvaltex also currently owns Victor Textiles Inc., a leading North American textile manufacturer,” a press release from Duvaltex stated.

As a result, Duvaltex has become the largest manufacturer of commercial or contract interior fabrics in the US and Canada, serving the office furniture, institutional, healthcare and hospitality industries.

According to Duvaltex, this acquisition will provide significant value to the customers of both Victor Textiles and True Textiles, which will continue to operate as independent business units.

“The companies will maintain the same commitment to quality, emphasis on unique products, and focus on customer service that has made them industry leaders,” it added in the press release.

Duvaltex management expects the company as well as its customers to benefit from opportunities to create synergies and efficiencies across the organisation.

“The company plans to improve each operation's competitive positioning by leveraging the individual strengths of each business unit across the organisation,” the company informed.

True Textiles offers high performance fabrics for applications such as panel, upholstery, acoustic and privacy curtains, to multiple market segments including corporate, healthcare, education, and hospitality.

True Textiles is vertically integrated and has expertise in fabric design, yarn production, weaving, weft knitting, finishing and performance enhancements.

The company offers an industry leading open line assortment through the Guilford of Maine collection, and unique weft knitted solutions through Teknit.

Victor Textiles is a North American-based textile company specialising in sustainable and innovative fabrics designed for the corporate, healthcare, apparel, and specialty markets.

The company operates state-of-the-art mills in several Canadian locations, a design studio in New York City, and utilises service-and-warehouse facilities in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Founded in 1947, family-owned Victor Textiles has a long history of servicing the North American textile and office furniture industries with environmentally responsible fabrics.

"This acquisition brings together two of the industry's most established and successful companies, recognised for their dedication to innovative product design and sustainability," Duvaltex president Alain Duval said.

"The True Textiles brands are respected worldwide, and we are looking forward to continuing to maintain that reputation, while also exploring new opportunities for growth and diversification,” he added.

“We believe customers of all the brands will see the benefits as we move forward to this exciting new chapter for both companies,' Duval observed. (AR)
