Introducing 47 Pro 6 Treatment

Friday, February 20th, 2015

47 Pro 6 is a new C6 flourochemical-based finish which offers long lasting oil and water repellancy to natural and synthetic fibers such as polyester, nylon, cotton, rayon and blends. In addition to oil and water resistance, this DWR treatment is also stain resistant and much more environmentally sound than the C8 treatment. As you may know PFOA, a material that bio-accumulates in Humans is an unintended byproduct of C8 DWR production and is viewed suspiciously by the medical community due to its adverse effects on laboratory animals and persistence. C8 flourochecmical production is under EPA review and DoD desires to move away from it. C6 production, on the other hand does not result in PFOA and is not subject to the voluntary restrictions facing C8.

47 Pro 6

Initial applications for 47 Pro 6 DWR treatment include physical fitness uniforms for DoD. If you are interested in incorporating this capability or for more information, contact Edward Ricci.

Brand and Oppenheimer Announce Management Transitions

Tuesday, January 27th, 2015

RED BANK, NJ – January 27, 2015 – Brand & Oppenheimer Co., Inc. (B&O), a leading textile converter, today announced that it has appointed Edward Ricci, Ben Galpen, and Bryan Boulis, known for their work under the 1947 llc aegis, to the Office of the CEO, effective immediately. Ricci, Galpen, and Boulis were recruited by Praesidian Capital, B&O’s controlling shareholder.

The three industry veterans are known for their innovative, high-energy management styles. Ricci, who will serve as CEO and oversee all B&O operations, is a third- generation textile executive who served as CEO of Duro, the textile company his grandfather founded in 1947. During his 22-year career in the industry, he has had responsibility for more than 3,000 textile workers worldwide. Galpen brings an additional 17 years of experience in the industry, while Boulis has more than three decades of broad woven textile experience sourcing fabrics both domestically and globally for a wide variety of end users.

“We are very excited to have attracted three outstanding textile executives to B&O,” stated Jason Drattell, Praesidian’s Founder.

Jon Mansfield, Praesidian Partner, added “In addition to their deep textile expertise, they have especially strong relationships with domestic weavers of nylon, polyester, nylon/cotton and cotton substrates which should be extremely beneficial to the company in its future work.”

Ricci noted “We have known both B&O and Performance Textiles for many years and see a multitude of interesting synergies that will benefit all stakeholders. As part of our work, we will bring new MultiCam® fabric development in the U.S. to B&O, as well as international MultiCam fabric sales on an exclusive basis. We are equally pleased to have a chance to work with the B&O and the Praesidian teams as we accelerate the company’s growth opportunities.”

Wow! Congrats to all involved! An inquiry to 1947 LLC revealed that it will continue to function as a separate entity, independent from this announcement.
