New SEAMS committee focuses on public sector contracts
SEAMS, the National Association for the US Sewn Products Industry, has formed a new committee to help its members do business with federal, state and local governments.
The goal of the SEAMS Government Committee is to expand production opportunities and capabilities for its members by helping them to identify, secure and maintain government contracts.
"As we become a recognised resource for informing and connecting our members with this market, we also expect to attract more US-based manufacturers and government agencies to participate in SEAMS events and membership," adds committee chairperson Geoff Senko of MMI Textiles Inc, which supplies specialty textiles and related components to the private and public sectors.
Other founding committee leaders include Jack Foster of Sterlingwear of Boston, Jeff Papalia of the National Industries for the Blind, Mary Reardon of Tweave LLC and Gary Whited of SourceAmerica.
