FilSpec receives the 2017 Expo Hightex Award for Innovation in Partnership
We’re pleased to announce that FilSpecTM has won the 2017 Expo Hightex Award for Innovation in Partnership, awarded by the CTT Group, for our project involving the development of new flame-resistant fabrics and thermal barriers for firefighter apparel. This award is a nod to the importance of our latest innovation, FireFilTM, a flame-, cut-, and tear-resistant yarn which, in collaboration with our partners, Textiles Monterey and Innotex, was used to create the very first firefighter suit designed and manufactured entirely in Québec.
The award will be presented on April 4 at the 2017 Expo Hightex gala. FilSpecTM will also have a booth at this leading North American trade show in the technical textile industry, to be held April 4 and 5 at Place Bonaventure in Montréal.
We look forward to seeing you there!
