Furniture World News


Lance Keziah, CEO of the Crypton Companies recently announced that as of January 1, 2018, all of Nanotex’s contract finishing will transition to Crypton’s plant in Kings Mountain, North Carolina. This strategic move ensures that Crypton’s strict quality assurances and control are now shared across Nanotex’s offering of contract finishing solutions.

A state of the art finishing facility, Crypton’s Kings Mountain plant is known for its commitment to innovation, rigorous quality control, and customer service.

“We look forward to working with all of Nanotex’s contract customers and applying our exacting performance standards to every yard,” says Lance Keziah, CEO of the Crypton Companies. “We
relentlessly test and apply best practices across the board for continuity, reliability and sustainability.”

Customers can continue to select from Nanotex’s performance offerings, opting for the best solutions
that best suit their needs. This includes stain repellency and release, back coating, and laminate. Crypton will process orders starting at a minimum of five yards. ‘Clean’ greige goods with no prior finishing are preferred to ensure optimal performance.

“The demand for high tech performance textiles continues to grow. We work to meet that demand with a constant eye to the future and a research-driven trajectory for new and needed technologies. We are proud to process all fabrics in North Carolina, a state with fabric in its DNA, and look forward to continued expansion with the addition of Nanotex,” says Keziah.
