N C State ATMI Partner In New Business Consortium

North Carolina State Universitys (NCSU) College of Textiles, Raleigh, N.C., and the American Textile Manufacturers Institute (ATMI) will partner in the newly formed Textile and Apparel Business Intelligence Consortium (TABIC).The consortium is developing a proposal to investigate the impact of the removal of textile and apparel quotas in January 2005. It will examine various scenarios to help guide U.S. companies in evaluating the alternatives in the rapidly changing trade environment after quotas are removed.A second study will look at the market for technical textiles in the United States and elsewhere. A third study under consideration includes an assessment of the textile and apparel industries in Central and South America. It will investigate the opportunites and problems that U.S. textile and apparel firms could face when exporting, contracting, investing and sourcing under the proposed Free Trade of the Americas. NCSUs textile and apparel database will provide the consortium with business and market forecasting capabilities.ATMI is extremely pleased to be working with N.C. State on these and future studies that will affect our industrys survival and growth prospects. This kind of partnering allows ATMI to provide greater value to its members as it addresses some of the major issues confronting our industry, said ATMI President, Chuck Hayes. July 2001
