ORCO “Rockin in Raleigh” with Successful Techtextil 2019

A BIG Thank You to our friends – old and new – who came by our SPLASH booth at Techtextil 2019 (Raleigh, NC) to discuss their color and chemical needs.  There was plenty of interest in our PeractoTM Ink Jet and Pad Dyeing Nano Pigment System, as well as inquiries into dyeing emerging fibers such as Hemp.  We also had many discussions regarding performance textiles such as Nomex and Kevlar, as well industrial composites, nonwovens, and barrier fabrics.

Randy Yorston, Marketing Manager, remarked “Though this was a smaller show compared to last year, we experience an increase in visits from mill personnel, technical staff and management decision makers.  Located right in the heart of Textiles and being more intimate than last year, Techtextil 2019 afforded us the opportunity for greater in-depth discussions and meetings.  It also allowed us more time to talk to the Thinkers and Dreamers who came by with their innovations and thoughts.  Finally, the abundance of NC State Wilson College of Textiles students who frequented the show added a positive energy for the future of the Industry.”

ORCO will continue to strive to be at the forefront of developments in Technical Textiles, Ink Jet Printing, Sustainable Color Application, Nano Pigments and Functional Chemicals.
