Delta Galil Industries, the Tel Aviv-headquartered manufacturer and marketer of branded and private label apparel products, with sales in 2020 of $1.45 billion, has announced a new strategic partnership with Sonovia.

Sonovia and its machinery manufacturing partner Brückner will install an ultrasonic fabric-finishing applicator at Delta Galil’s innovation centre in Karmiel, Israel, to pilot the application of new, eco-responsible fabric finishes offering antimicrobial protection and other long-lasting benefits to leading global brands.

“Sonovia’s ultrasonic technology is the future of high-performance and sustainable fabric finishing,” said Gil Shimon, president of global upper markets for Delta Galil. “This partnership enables us to take another step towards fully sustainable and environmentally friendly manufacturing and we’re extremely pleased to be able to offer our activewear and apparel clients this option for imparting beneficial properties into their garments.”

Sonovia’s fabric-finishing technology allows brands to sustainably incorporate long-lasting, built-in properties such as antimicrobial and anti-odour protection, as well as water repellency to textiles, while maintaining superior fabric performance. The company’s solution embeds the particles, compounds and molecules of desired properties directly into textiles, creating a durable, added-value fabric that retains its properties through multiple washings.

The company’s partnership with Delta Galil constitutes a significant landmark in Sonovia’s path to commercialising its technology.

“This strategic agreement with Delta Galil constitutes a vote of confidence in Sonovia’s eco-friendly, performance fabric-finishing technology from one of the world’s leading manufacturers of activewear and apparel,” said Shuki Herchcovici, chairman and CEO of Sonovia. “I have no doubt that this relationship will yield outstanding results for both companies, and I look forward to a long and successful partnership that will support more responsible, sustainable production for many brands.”
