Time to Budget: Get Your Gym Ready for the Upcoming School Year

As in all businesses and companies, budgeting is a hectic and Gym Divider Image May 2016stressful time. Schools are no exception, as spring is the time to develop and vote on the upcoming finances for the new school year.

The budget process must account for expenditures in areas such as personnel, maintenance, and supplies for the remainder of 2016 and the start of 2017.

Schools must also prioritize the safety of students while planning. As Physical Education is a mandated curriculum, gyms must be outfitted with the products that will provide a safe, educational environment and deliver the durability and reliability for daily use. Outdoor fields should also be protected from weather when not in use. At this time of year we see an increase in orders for athletic materials from elementary through to college level institutions.

The Boating Industry Gets Ready for the 2017 Model Year Rollout

Passage of the Coast Guard Authorization Act of 2015 revised the model year for boat manufacturers to start on June 1st and end on July 31, 2017, making this a 14-month model-year rollout opportunity for boat manufacturers.

The sun, water, and salt combine to make a tough environment for textiles and fabrics. Materials that are not designed for these conditions will wear and fail in a short period of time. With our start in the sail making business over 100 years ago, we have the knowledge to make fabrics and textiles that are capable of the durability and dependability needed for life on the water.

Coastguard® 100% Solution Dyed Acrylic Awning & Marine Fabrics
Top Gun™ Acrylic Coated Polyester Marine Fabrics
Mustang™ Mid-Weight Acrylic Coated Polyester Fabrics

Atlantis™ Marine Topping Marine Fabrics
Template Perfect™ Clear Woven Reinforced Pattern Materials
