Yes, we are about to turn the calendar to January and say farewell to 2015. This is usually a time to look back and reflect on the past year while looking forward to the newness of the coming one. The textile industry in our country has seen its share of ups and downs, but gained some needed recognition this past spring with a public-private investment for a new Revolutionary Fibers and Textiles Manufacturing Innovation Institute. Here at Mauritzon this past year was full of activity as we continued to supply the highest quality industrial fabrics to all sorts of industries.
This past spring we launched our new website. As a way to better interact with our customers, the new site is easy to navigate and loaded with new, improved content including amazing images of our products. Its mobile friendly design helps our on-the-go customers find what they need on our site quickly and efficiently. We hope you are enjoying the new site as much as we are!
Although it is winter in many parts of the country, there are still areas that are able to enjoy more temperate weather and outdoor activities. In June we wrote about “living outdoors” in our blog and even though many of you are suffering through the cold winter weather now, it will be spring before you know it!
Leading up to the holiday season is a very busy time for certain types of the fabrics we manufacture. Polyester and nylon fabrics, for instance, are widely used in consumer products purchased as gifts and are included in items such as soft-sided luggage, backpacks, gym bags, and promotional gift products. Tarps and vinyl fabrics are also in demand as winter creeps in and outdoor items and cargo need protection from the weather.
Over the past year it is exciting to realize that our products have year-round needs, whether it is due to seasonal applications or general industrial uses. Of course, as a former sail maker many of our products are used in the marine industry, but you can find our textiles in almost every industry. From sports applications to awnings Maurtizon’s textile products are everywhere. In 2016 we will be looking to connecting with our customers directly through email-blasts to keep everyone updated on the latest company and product news.
From the Mauritzon family to yours, we wish you the happiest holiday season and look forward to working with you in 2016!
