VANCOUVER, Dec. 4, 2013 /CNW/ - The Hon. John D. Reynolds, a former West
Vancouver, British Columbia MP, has joined Garmatex Technologies, Inc.
as Chairman of its Advisory Board.
Reynolds' objective at the Vancouver-based research and
development-oriented fabric manufacturing company is to help develop
new business partnerships between Garmatex and commercial,
institutional and industrial firms requiring its scientifically
Reynolds, who began his political career in 1972 and has also served as
Director of numerous Public companies, with businesses around the
world, (including International Corona Resources, which made one of the
largest gold discoveries in North America), decided to join Garmatex in
the fall of 2013 after a colleague directed his attention to the
organization. "I examined the website and then quickly arranged a visit
to their Vancouver headquarters," he says. "Frankly, I'm convinced
Garmatex will be of immense benefit globally for everyone from clothing
manufacturers to hotels and hospitals."
Reynolds joins Garmatex at an exciting time for the Company. "Our
momentum is building towards an anticipated IPO and further capital
raises, with the proceeds geared towards boosting our manufacturing,
sales and marketing capabilities," says Garmatex Chief Executive
Officer Martin Doane.
Garmatex's fabrics, designs and technologies, branded as KottinuTM, CoolSkin®, WarmSkin®, SatinuTM, ColdSkinTM, T3®, Bact-Out®, SteelSkinTM, SlimSkinTM, CamoSkin®, RecoverySkinTM, AbsorbSkinTM and IceSkinTM provide best-in-class temperature and moisture management performance,
resilience, bacteria-repelling properties and comfort.
Garmatex fabric is unique because the Company's research and development
team has redefined the foundation of microfiber filament construction.
Garmatex also controls the manufacturing process from the raw grain
stage, through filament extrusion, knitting or weaving, and dyeing and
Garmatex's ability to manipulate its man-made fiber on a molecular level
to suit different end uses means it can develop solutions for a wide
variety of clients. To date it has created everything from a
high-performance alternative to cotton undergarment fabric worn by
firefighters, to sleepwear that keeps users cool at night.
Doane points out that his Company's versatility "enables us to be a
solutions provider to clients in sectors as diverse as medicine, law
enforcement, automotive, hospitality - you name it." Garmatex's
research and development team mixes and matches hundreds of microfiber
filaments and experiments with different knitting techniques and
anti-bacterial processes to engineer solutions for clients.
Better still, because Garmatex works directly with clients to develop
end product, the traditional costly and time-consuming practice of
procuring fabric through overseas intermediaries is eliminated. "We're
changing the fabric market terrain in many fundamental ways, and the
big winner is the client," says Doane.
Reynolds, whose long career includes serving on the Board of Governors
for the 1994 Victoria Commonwealth Games Society and receiving the
Queens Medal in 1978, 2002 and 2012, is excited about collaborating
with such explosive growth potential. "I've already begun introducing
Garmatex to potential business partners in North America, India and
China," he says. "My objective is to partner management with the right
people around the world, because Garmatex itself is on the road to
becoming a global entity."
