TSG Finishing, which has operating plants in Hickory and Conover, NC, is expanding its DEFEND brand of high-performance finishing products to its wide-width nonwovens coating and converting business.

“In less than 2 years DEFEND has become the standard-bearer for high-performance finishing in the residential and contract upholstery markets,” said Michael Goldman, President and 5th Generation owner of TSG. “Using the DEFEND platform, we are now able to deliver the same level of customization and performance to the nonwovens market.”

DEFEND just gives us another tool in the shed.”
