Archroma, a global leader in color and specialty chemicals, has announced that the company is to sponsor the ITMA Future Materials Awards 2014.
World Textile Information Network, publisher of international technical textiles magazine Future Materials, launched the Awards to recognize success in textile innovation and celebrate the essential work of the many businesses which support the industry.
As a leading supplier to the industry, Archroma has agreed to sponsor the event as Platinum Sponsor to underline the company’s commitment to innovation.
Uwe Halder, Head of Textile Chemicals, Textile Specialties Business, Archroma, said: “Archroma’s Textile Specialties Business plays a key role throughout the entire textile supply chain, with special chemicals for pre-treatment, dyeing, printing and finishing of textiles. Sponsoring this key industry event helps to demonstrate our commitment to innovation – and long-term sustainability.”
Mr. Halder added: “As the recipient of key industry awards ourselves, we know from experience that industry recognition is a valuable asset and a stimulus to improve further.” Last year, Archroma’s ONE WAY Sustainability Service for textile was honored with the prestigious ICIS Innovation Award for Best Business Innovation.
The Future Materials Awards are open to all the end-use sectors for technical textiles as well as materials experts, product developers and designers. The winners will be decided by a panel of renowned industry experts and announced at a gala dinner that will take place on November 26, 2014 in Dresden, Germany.
