US: Lenzing ups fibre output for TenCate Defender M
TenCate Protective Fabrics, based in Union City, Georgia, said the volume increase will take effect late in the third quarter.
Launched in March 2007, Defender M has become a key component of US military combat uniforms used by the US Army and the US Marine Corps.
Lenzing's investment in new production capacity will also enable the two companies to pursue international military orders.
Protective fabric maker TenCate today (8 December) said it expects the US military to order $35m worth of its Gen2 fabrics for use in combat uniforms in 2009....
