Industry veteran joins PrimaLoft Performance Fabric team

Structured as a wholly owned subsidiary of Mitsui & Co, Mitsui Bussan Techno Products is a trading company specializing in textile and industrial materials. Mitsui Bussan Techno Products, a specialist in textile and industrial materials, has announced its partnership with performance textile industry veteran, John Mitchell, to develop and promote a line of performance knitted fabrics under its PrimaLoft Performance Fabric licence.

John Mitchell is well known for his years at Polartec and Dyersburg Fabrics, as well as for helping pioneer innovative branded technologies in the technical apparel, accessories and footwear markets.

“I look forward to developing product, marketing and business partnerships for this system of knit fabrics created to work seamlessly with PrimaLoft yarn and insulation products,” said Mr Mitchell.

Mitsui Bussan Techno Products purchased the Pertex brand in 2005. In 2013, Mitsui Bussan Techno Products and PrimaLoft collaborated to develop and manufacture PrimaLoft Performance Fabrics.
