Gehring continues to sell Massif line of flame-resistant fabrics
Massif Mountain Gear Company and Gehring Textiles announced that they have entered into an exclusive agreement to jointly develop and supply military forces around the world with a new generation of flame-resistant fabrics and apparel. Under the terms of the agreement, Massif will become Gehring's exclusive customer for new flame-resistant fabrics developed by Gehring, or jointly by Gehring and Massif, for apparel, headwear and gloves. Gehring will continue to sell certain styles in its current line of flame-resistant fabrics to existing customers.
Gehring President Skip Gehring commented, "This is an exciting collaboration between two product focused companies with a penchant for innovation. Our shared expertise in fabric development coupled with Massif's outstanding garment development and customer service capabilities will enable this team to invent the next generation of protective apparel for our troops."
"I don't know if it is possible to have more fun at work than sitting down with the folks from Gehring at a new product development meeting. The depth and expertise of their capabilities are world class, while their free thinking approach, commitment to quality and speed to market are consistent with those same values at Massif. This is a partnership that makes sense on every level, where the sum of the parts is definitely greater than the two companies alone," noted Jeff Bowman, Massif's Chief Operating Officer.
The two companies have already begun development on several new garments and fabrics that are expected to deliver enhanced protection and greater performance to America's warfighters in the near future.
