December 4th, 2014 / By: / Category: Division News


IFAI is pleased to introduce a new division representing members supplying fabrics and fabric products to the U.S. military. The division supports the longevity and specialization of IFAI members with a military focus, offering opportunities for both manufacturers and suppliers of gear, uniforms, aid products, and other personal and on-site military equipment.

New educational programming, legislative and trade advocacy, networking opportunities and information sharing will be implemented for the division. The division seeks to ultimately create a separate military fabric and textile event to gather members of the industry.

There are currently 32 division members. The advisory board consists of the following IFAI members:

Amy Bircher, MMI Textiles; Bob Rosania, EHMKE Manufacturing Co. Inc.; Brandon Hoffman, Weckworth Manufacturing Inc.; J.C. Egnew, Outdoor Venture Corp.; Kelly Rowe, Tape Craft Corp.; Maureen MacGillivray, Central Michigan University; Scott Crothers, First State Manufacturing; and Ted Anderson, BondCote Corp.
