Ecom Textile Inc, a privately held global Internet marketplace for the textile, apparel, machinery and sewn products (TAMS) industries, will officially launch its website to the public - www.ecomtextile.com - at the MAGIC Show in Las Vegas on August 28. After taking a month to initialise the official site launch, Ecom Textile will unveil the new web exchange to the audience, showcasing a completely new look and redesign. Ecom Textile established its Internet exchange to initially serve as an electronic purchasing hub for the global textile and apparel industry and then become one of the first Internet marketplaces for the global TAMS industries. The exchange allows buyers and sellers of textile-related activities to transact business electronically. The company plans to add services and functionality incrementally as they are developed. "We're changing the face of electronic procurement and supply chain service, bringing the ultimate sourcing tool to the TAMS marketplace," said John C Adams, chief executive officer of Ecom Textile. "Manufacturers and suppliers will be able to conduct business in a way unlike anything they've known. We are at the forefront of an entirely new Internet experience, and with these added offerings now being introduced, we're establishing an unprecedented active relationship between the TAMS industries and an Internet medium that answers the demands of a new way of conducting business."
