Increasing sales of solar protection fabric and operations scattered among temporary buildings were two of the reasons that 3G Mermet tripled its floor space in its expanded Cowpens, South Carolina, facility. The new 130,000-square-foot building gives the company room to grow and consolidate corporate, sales, support, weaving, coating and warehouse in one central location. Mermet fabrics provide architects and designers with solutions to many problems: solar protection, energy savings, visual appeal, acoustical comfort and environmental certification. The company hosted dignitaries and customers from around the globe at a grand opening celebration. For more information, visit www.mermetusa.com.
