GRAND RAPIDS, MI - InterfaceFABRIC, the largest U.S. commercial contract manufacturer of interior fabrics recently announced it has changed its name to True Inc. True is a leading provider of fabrics for the office, healthcare, hospitality, institutional, congregational, and automotive markets.
The renaming completes the company's ownership transition since Sun Capital Partners Inc., a private equity firm, purchased it from Interface Inc., in mid-2007.
"Our corporate mission and core values will remain unchanged," says Rob Harper, senior vice president of sales and marketing of True Inc. "True is committed to delivering the quality, innovative and sustainable products and business practices our customers have come to expect. As a stand-alone company, though, we are able to be more nimble and responsive, and offer complete transparency to all of our stakeholders. ‘True' represents who we are and how we go to market."
True showcased its product line at NeoCon 2008 in Chicago.
True is the manufacturer of Terratex!, the industry's first collection of recycled polyester commercial fabrics. The products are created using 100 percent recyclable or renewable materials, and at the end of their useful life, they are recyclable or compostable.
The company also created the award-winning ReSKU fabric reclamation program.
ReSKU reclaims polyester panel fabrics previously introduced into the marketplace, shreds them, and then creates a material that can be used as a replacement for polyurethane foam in seating and other components.
