In­vista to open ‘Ad­vanced Tex­tile In­no­va­tion Cen­tre’

Stitch World - - TECH TRACK -

In­vista Ap­parel and Ad­vanced Tex­tiles re­cently signed an agree­ment to build an Ad­vanced Tex­tile In­no­va­tion Cen­tre in China. The cen­tre is ex­pected to be opened at San­shan Sci­en­tific In­no­va­tion Park, Foshan in late 2018.

The Tex­tile In­no­va­tion Cen­tre, ex­tend­ing over a wide area of more than 4,500 square me­tres, will have all the lat­est tex­tile ma­chines to be used for weav­ing and knit­ting. It’ll be fully equipped with the lat­est equip­ment for fab­ric cer­ti­fi­ca­tion and gar­ment en­gi­neer­ing as well.

Ad­di­tion­ally, there will be a sep­a­rate area in the cen­tre where clients and the R& D team at In­vista can meet not only to build in­no­va­tions but also to test those in­no­va­tions in fi­bres, fab­rics and gar­ments.

Jack Yang, who works as CTO, East Re­gion, at In­vista ex­pressed op­ti­mism at the set­ting up of the in­no­va­tion cen­tre. He said that be­sides at­tract­ing an R& D team to the new in­no­va­tion cen­tre, the fa­cil­ity can also be used to bring to­gether ex­perts from the com­pany’s other lab­o­ra­to­ries.

It is worth not­ing that In­vista has many R& D lab­o­ra­to­ries in Tai­wan, Italy and the USA.

Yang fur­ther added that In­vista is com­mit­ted to devel­op­ing tex­tile so­lu­tions, which are not only func­tional but also in sync with fash­ion trends. There­fore, the com­pany is striv­ing to con­duct re­search pro­grammes based on fi­bre, fab­ric and gar­ment in­no­va­tions.

This as­sumes more im­por­tance con­sid­er­ing 2018 cel­e­brates the 60th year of In­vista- owned Lycra, a brand that is syn­ony­mous with in­no­va­tion to­day.

The cen­tre is ex­pected to be a hub to en­hance com­mu­ni­ca­tion be­tween its cus­tomers across the Asi­aPa­cific and the lo­cal brands in China.
