MMI Textiles, based in Cleveland, Ohio, is now able to supply Milliken’s Tegris thermoplastic composite fabrics in lower quantities than previously available as the result of a new commercial market partnership.

Tegris is designed for heavy-duty and often dangerous work, providing excellent protection against fragment, projectile or blast threats. It is engineered specifically for applications that need high stiffness, like plate carriers and belts, and has a lighter total weight than traditional thermoplastics and composites without sacrificing protection.

“We are thrilled to partner with Milliken and offer the proven Tegris product line to our vast customer base,” said Amy Bircher, CEO and founder of MMI Textiles. “Our team looks forward to a growing partnership to provide the very best solutions to the military and the many other markets we serve.”

Milliken has worked closely with MMI to provide  comprehensive information on the product that positions the distributor as an expert on Tegris.

MMI Textiles, is a global supplier of industrial and custom fabrics and textile components with a narrow weaving operation in Lenoir, North Carolina, and a resource base of more than 250 suppliers.
