over the world with many of the leading fabric and apparel companies,
designers, and fabric engineers but I have never seen a more promising
and innovative fabric technology platform than that of Garmatex’s. It
is truly disruptive and offers endless opportunities to build dominant
positions in the majority of the major textile segments.  This starts,
for me, with the performance apparel segment, where I believe Garmatex
has already developed the best-engineered array of fabrics currently
available in the world, which can transform the capabilities of the
leading retail brands and lift the entire industry to a new level of
