Syntec Industries unveils new line of flooring at IBEX

Publish date:

Syntec Industries launched what it calls the industry’s first textured PVC textile products at the International BoatBuilders’ Exhibition & Conference last week.

“This is a material that looks and feels as great as it performs,” company president Bill Watters said in a statement. “With our sizable investment in new state-of-the-art equipment, we can provide our OEM customers with limitless designs in textured woven PVC. This will certainly translate to very satisfied boat owners with more choices and added comfort on the water.”

The company said it integrated eight Jacquard looms into its production facility this year, which it said delivers flexibility in design options. Weave patterns, styles, inlays and color pallets can be customized to fit a boatbuilder’s overall design. The loom equipment also allows for engineering processes designed to increase comfort and resist stain, mold and mildew, the company said.

“We’re very proud to be able to bring a more diverse lineup of marine flooring to our customers,” Watters said. “The new Sensations line broadens our offering in order to better provide our OEM customers with premium products for their brands.”

The Sensations line is available in the marine market now and will expand into the company’s housing and recreational vehicle markets in the coming months.
