Invista's Textile Research Facility Expands Offering

Wichita, Kan.-based Invista - a global integrated fibers and polymers manufacturer - has relocated its North American apparel customer service facility from Charlotte to the Applied Research Centre in Newark, Del. The Newark facility now will offer brand standards testing, which determines whether fibers and fabrics can be trademarked under names such as Lycra®, Tactel®, Coolmax® and Supplex®. The Applied Research Centre also will provide customer-inquiry analysis and in-process management in addition to its existing research and development (R&D) programs.

"Guided by Invista's strong focus on innovation, we have used this research facility in the past to explore new ideas for fiber and fabric applications," said Robert Dzielak, North America sales director, Invista Apparel. "With the addition of these expanded services, we not only continue our R&D efforts, but also provide added value with brand standards testing and direct customer service."
