ACW Expands with New Facility and Additional Hires

Sunday, April 10th, 2011

Established in 1917, ACW (American Cord and Webbing) is a custom design manufacturer of plastic and metal fasteners as well as elastic and non-elastic narrow textile webbing and cord products. In addition to expanding their custom design and manufacturing facilities to bring all of these efforts under one roof, they have also added two key team members, Wendy Horowitz and Stephan Yardan who will support their custom design product development effort.

Mark Krauss, ACW president, commented, “Providing customers with product solutions that help them meet industry challenges means formulating a highly skilled team that understand business trends, can anticipate customer’s needs and deliver innovative products. Wendy and Steve complement our custom design, problem-solving approach in the best possible way.”

ACW had this to say about Ms Horowitz and Mr Yardan:

Wendy Horowitz is an expert on specialty fibers for narrow fabric applications. A textile engineer and business development specialist, she has helped ACW enter highly technical, performance driven markets. Her clear understanding of customers’ needs, along with her creativity, has led to the developments of several new product lines. Wendy is also Chairperson of the Safety & Technical Products Division of IFAI.

ACW has had a long standing relationship with industrial designer Steve Yardan. Steve’s design and business understanding has helped ACW co-develop fresh concepts into product realities. As a result, this strategic alliance allows ACW to service customers with in-house, rapid product development followed by production for numerous markets including categories for military use.
