SSM Industries – Featured in Technical Textiles International Magazine

SSM Industries, Inc., is pleased to announce their feature article in Technical Textiles International Magazine, September 2013 issue, has been published worldwide.

As the US technical textile landscape is changing, Technical Textiles reporter/writer, John W. McCurry describes how SSM Industries’ diverse approach has helped buffer the company from the worst effects of the general downturn in the US economy and deep cuts to the defense budget.

In the article entitled, “Diversity, Innovation and Investment from SSM Industries,” Mr. McCurry focused on the ability of SSM Industries to produce highly specialized knits and woven fabrics and how their business model adds to the company’s manufacturing versatility.

Excerpt from the article; SSM is proud of its diversity and produces high-value fabrics in response to customers’ requests. Steve Smith, VP Sales & Marketing, describes how “research and development is a big component. We believe the economy will come around in the next couple of years. It’s showing signs of trying to get out of the hole and I am optimistic about all of our markets.”

SSM Industries innovation leads to the manufacturing of made in the USA fabric options including; Pro-CFR ® 12 CAL, the lightest weight, highest arc rated flame resistant cotton made in a comfortable knit construction in brilliant color options;  Pro-CFR ®Fleece, 10.5 osy, a fabric perfect for the cool weather months and light enough for the southern US climate;  Pro-CFR ® + TransDRY™, a fabric that wicks moisture and is on the cutting edge of moisture-management technology.
