Royal TenCate (TenCate) has signed a Memorandum of Cooperation with Beijing Chinamex International Investment Co. Ltd. (Chinamex) in Beijing, China, to develop the Chinese market for protective fabrics. The objective: to market flame-retardant (FR) fabrics for defense applications, police and emergency response. As in many other emerging markets for high performance materials, the demand for personal safety and protection in work situations and hazardous environments is growing.
As a leading supplier of protective fabrics, TenCate welcomes the support of Chinamex in this important market. On the basis of its proven FR product portfolio (such as TenCate Defender™ M and TenCate Tecasafe® Plus), the company has developed a dedicated product for the Chinese market under the name TenCate Fire Dragon™.
Chinamex was officially established in 2000, with the goal of establishing economic and trade cooperation between China and overseas areas. In recent years it has earned widespread trust among Chinese and foreign governments and companies for its reliable commercial credit and impressive achievements. The Beijing-based Chinamex has a presence in the Middle East (Sharjah, United Arab Emirates), North America (Atlanta, USA), Europe (Amsterdam, the Netherlands), South America (Mexico City, Mexico) and Southeast Asia (Bangkok, Thailand).
TenCate and Wall Street Uniforms Intl. Ltd. in Hong Kong will support Chinamex and its designated partners and local companies in the development of the Chinese market for advanced protective fabrics. TenCate will support marketing efforts and provide the expertise necessary to build up the market.
