CTW is an innovative research company formed in 2010 to develop and commercialize new technical textile technologies. Specifically the company develops unique functional fibers/fabrics and durable
The Principals of CTW have extensive experience in all aspects of specialty textiles and are effective in overcoming the challenges encountered in the development of new textile materials and in converting laboratory successes to viable commercial products.
Employees at CTW Development are a close knit team of textile chemical and fabric generation professionals who have mastered the art of fabric development. Their desire is to design, develop and commercialize the combination of chemical and fabric technologies that can the impact the world in a positive way. They understand how to work with technical partners, to establish efficient research programs directed at identifying promising new technologies and to then translate these into innovative and commercially viable fabrics. They have broad connections within North American textile industry including specialty fiber producers, woven and non-woven fabric producers, textile chemical companies and fabric finishing companies.
The fabric production industry has largely abandoned research into new products and materials in favor of focused, short-term development and current product enhancement programs. At CTW Development, we believe that the future of advanced fabric research and early stage product development is in hands of small, innovative companies where new thinking and creative approaches to technical problems can emerge and be developed in an efficient manner. We also believe that new technologies can emerge from the joint efforts of innovation based companies, working in concert with larger, production focused companies and that this approach will provide the basis for the new fabric technologies of the future.
CTW Development is committed to a working environment based on open innovation and productive engagement that provides the basis for rapid and efficient technology development. We believe that we can provide that rare combination of committed researchers and managers that are dedicated to their technical art, together with a corporate structure that moves newly developed fabric and fabric modification technologies forward through the development stage and into early stage commercialization. It is in this context that new and dynamic technologies can emerge from the laboratory and move forward to change and improve the world of fabric technology.
