With new textile markets and technologies evolving quickly, Aurora believes it is ideally poised to help companies develop new products that help them keep pace with market trends. Attendees are invited to visit the company from 22-24 May, at the Georgia World Conference Center in Atlanta, GA, to learn about the many market segments that can benefit from Aurora’s manufacturing operations and R&D expertise.

“Aurora continues to capitalise on our new capabilities to customize new products for our customers,” said Marcia Ayala, Vice President of Aurora. “We have a talented product development team and fully-equipped Innovation Lab. I’m looking forward to seeing our customers at Techtextil and meeting potential new customers to learn about their needs for finished and coated textile products and discuss partnering with them to find commercially viable solutions.”

Growth and expansion

Aurora’s attendance at Techtextil North America 2018 follows two years of growth and expansion following the formal opening in the fall of 2016 of Aurora’s vast, new, state-of-the-art manufacturing operations in Yorkville, IL, USA. In step with that move into the future, Aurora also launched a new brand logo, tag line and Mission Statement, and in 2017 announced the roll-out and full commercialization of their entire Expressions Canvas product line.

Aurora’s premium Expressions canvas line, which is quickly becoming known as a perfect option for signage, art and home décor, is available in four different gloss levels. All of the products in the Expressions line are treated with the proprietary Expressions coating engineered by Aurora’s North American R&D group to maximise colour pop and visual clarity on today’s latest generation latex, solvent/eco-solvent and UV printers.

Market segments

Market segments that have begun to benefit from Aurora’s advanced product development and manufacturing capabilities include print media, nautical, home décor, bedding, outdoor and much more.

Existing and potential customers include companies in the Buildtech, Hometech, Indutech, Mobiltech and Medtech Application Areas at Techtextil. The Product Groups for Aurora at Techtextil include Woven Fabrics, Knitted Fabrics, Nonwovens, Coated Textiles, Canvas Products and Development.
