BigSky acquires G3i to grow GreenShield fabric finish

Jun '09
BigSky Technologies LLC acquired the assets to G3i Technology Innovations LLC, manufacturer of GreenShield, on June 15, 2009. BigSky intends to seamlessly continue manufacturing all of the current GreenShield products while developing improved formulations and extending the product line to additional markets.

GreenShield is an environmentally friendly fabric finish that provides water & stain repellency. Using patented nanotechnology the finish permanently adheres to surfaces for long-lasting, effective, and safe use. GreenShield uses no volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and is Indoor Advantage Gold certified by SCS, a mark of sustainability by Scientific Certification Systems. GreenShield has been assessed by MBDC (Materials Benchmarking Assessment) from a cradle-to-cradle perspective. Silver certification is uniquely possible for fabrics finished with GreenShield. The cradle-to-cradle certification focuses on natural processes while minimizing waste.

"GreenShield already possesses the most environmentally friendly technology in the market," said Brian Rosenstein, director of operations for TSG Incorporated, the commission finisher of GreenShield products. "The acquisition by BigSky will allow GreenShield to advance and further expand our Balance(TM) program," a program of planet friendly fabric finishing.

BigSky brings to the product line a management team of engineers, scientists, and business professionals with 150 combined years of R&D, commercialization, and sales experience. With leadership experience in large and small businesses, the team expects to accelerate product development to meet customer needs. "TSG is very excited about the opportunities this will present for us and our industry," Rosenstein said.

BigSky Technologies LLC is a materials science company that manufactures textile finishes inspired by Nature. The company develops cost-effective solutions for the coatings and fabrics industries using sustainable manufacturing processes, reducing or eliminating the use of harmful chemicals. BigSky Technologies LLC produces GreenShield, an environmentally friendly water and stain-repellent fabric finish.
