HICKORY, NC (Sept. 10, 2014) – Innovative textile and apparel manufacturer Supreme Corporation has joined the National Association for the Sewn Products Industry (SEAMS), a non-profit organization for sewn products manufacturers and suppliers. Supreme is the parent company of Tuff-N-Lite.
Celebrating its 50th Anniversary, Supreme Corporation designs and manufactures high-performance, patent-protected yarns and personal safety apparel that is used globally. Its Tuff-N-Lite® apparel has proven itself instrumental in preventing physical injuries on factory floors and in professional sports.
“We joined SEAMS because of its long track record of constantly working to identify challenges, provide support and develop solutions to issues facing its members,” said Matthew Kolmes, Executive Vice President of Supreme Corporation.
Additionally, Kolmes said that SEAMS is dedicated to promoting sound economic growth for US sewn products companies through relevant and timely educational programs, dissemination of information on government regulations and legislation impacting the industry, and by facilitating benefit and service offerings that enable our members to control costs and achieve business improvements.
A leader in textiles, fiber and safety apparel technology, Supreme Corporation manufactures innovative specialty yarns and safety apparel. The privately-held, Hickory, NC-based company currently holds over 40 active patents in advanced, high performance yarns, including blends of Aramid yarns (Kevlar® and Nomex®), Spectra® yarns, fiberglass yarns, and Stainless Steel yarns in a range of denier and color.
These are blended with other fibers to give customers otherwise unattainable performance and are built to customers’ exact specifications.
