Crypton wins Best Innovation Award at ITA Awards Gala

Gala took place on Dec. 5 at the High Point Country Club

CryptonBLOOMFIELD HILLS, Mich. - The Crypton Companies, a provider of performance fabrics in the contract, home furnishings and apparel markets, announced that Crypton Home won the Best in Innovation Award at the International Textiles Alliance (ITA) Awards Gala at Showtime.

The Awards Gala (previously called the ITMA Awards Gala) took place on Dec. 5 at High Point Country Club in High Point, N.C. and benefited the ITA Educational Foundation. Showtime, High Point’s semi-annual fabric market, is produced by and for the members of the ITA twice a year, and brings all segments of the home furnishings industry together.

“Being recognized by the ITA for ‘Best in Innovation’ for our performance technology is an honor, and the credit goes to our wonderful team of scientists, researchers and business development teams,” said Randy Rubin, Crypton chairman and co-founder. “We applied Crypton’s more than 20 years of experience in producing performance fabrics into developing a product line for the home that would stand out and stand up to the true test – the consumer.”

Rubin, who founded The Crypton Companies more than 20 years ago to provide cutting-edge technologies for contract performance textiles, oversees not only the Crypton Home business, but also the contract business, Crypton Fabric, which has sold over 150 million yards globally and the Nanotex brand, which specializes in performance technologies for apparel and consumer goods.

Positioned at the center of the textile, leather and trimmings industries, ITA is focused on providing resources and opportunities to its membership that promote industry advancement through education, awareness, advocacy and technology. While the Showtime event is a key benefit of membership, the organization provides a variety of leadership, networking and educational opportunities designed to support individual member businesses, as well as advance the industry.
