The FabricLink Network Expands Indexes to Include New Cut & Sew Contractor Index
Tarzana, Calif. May 9, 2014 – The FabricLink Network (FLN), the leading website for networking, marketing, and education within the textile industry, announces an expansion of its Searchable Indexes. The new addition includes aFREE Cut & Sew Contractors Index, which has been added to FLN’s already 11 popular Supplier’s Searchable Indexes (i.e. Company, Trademark, Fiber/Yarn/Thread, Fabric, Technology/Finish, Insulation, Leather, Component Material, Findings, New Product Development, and End Use). The new Cut & Sew Contractors Index will allow product developers and designers to quickly find resources that can assist in manufacturing a finished product.
Kathy Swantko, president of the FabricLink Network, explains the benefits of this new expansion, “Networking is why we are here! We are making networking simple for the entire supply chain, including cut & sew contractors. It’s now even easier to bring your textile products to market!”
Within the Cut & Sew Contractors Index, sewing contractors are highlighted by their expertise in manufacturing specific finished products, and are identified according to their affiliations, such as Made in USA, Made in California, as well as CAFTA, and/or NAFTA compliant resources. The new Index will also provide assistance to those companies focused on reshoring and bringing garment production back to the Western Hemisphere. No matter what the end-use application, finding a Cut & Sew Contractor is simple and quick.
The new Cut & Sew Contractors Index completes the FLN’s Indexes for the entire supply chain for manufacturing finished products. Now, at TheTechnicalCenter.com, a designer or product developer can find sources for both raw materials in nearly 100 end-use applications within the categories of Apparel, Sports Textiles, Home Furnishings, Safety & Protective, Industrial, and Medical. And, they can also find a cut & sew manufacturer to solve any design / production challenge.
Through the new Index, the FLN offers promotional opportunities for companies wanting to enhance their listings within the Cut & Sew Contractors Index and drive even more contacts directly to them. These promotional Presentation Page opportunities describe the cut & sew contractors’ products and services in more detail. Any manufacturer or designer looking for specific finished product production and / or cut & sew services can quickly find the highlighted resource within the Cut & Sew Contractors Index that will fill their needs.
