MarChem Coated Fabrics Inc., the New Haven, Mo.-based manufacturer of marine and awning fabrics, has changed its name to MarChem Custom Fabrics Inc.
The change was made to reflect the company’s new focus on creating custom fabrics for the marine, awning, tent, outdoor furniture and safety markets. The new name will be promoted in a forthcoming advertising campaign, and in an updated Web site that allows for rapid custom fabric requests by distributors, OEMs, cut-and-sew operations, and end-users.
Existing MarChem CFI product offerings of acrylic coated texturized polyester will not be affected. This includes Top Gun, Topyssey, Odyssey III, Softouch, Amerglo, Holiday, Aqua-Tite, Marsolv, and ParaSeal, as well as the solution-dyed Top Notch.
