The Quantum Group To Receive Textile World Magazine 2015 Innovation Award

Colfax, N.C. — September 15, 2015 — The Quantum Group — a Colfax, N.C.-based manufacturer of unique yarns, and high-performance knitted and woven fabrics — is the recipient of the 2015 Innovation Award from Textile World, the leading trade magazine for the U.S. textile industry.

The Quantum Group, along with its four sister companies, was selected to receive the award because of the company’s long-standing commitment to innovation in the textile industry and incredible ability to solve client’s challenges, according to James M. Borneman, publisher of Textile World.

“The Quantum Group was founded with innovation at its very core,” said Borneman. “Founded in 1985, Quantum, led by Jeff Bruner, is seemingly unlimited in its ability to engineer solutions. From polymer, extrusion, yarn preparation, knitting and weaving — Quantum and its sister companies engineer product end-to-end. One of its most notable developments was the creation of Pellicle® fabric for the Herman Miller Aeron chair. Quantum’s equipment, often heavily modified, allows for creative processes as a fully integrated manufacturer,” Borneman added.

The November/December 2015 issue of Textile World will feature the full Quantum Group story. The award will be presented during an awards dinner Wednesday, December 2, 2015, during the Textile World Innovation Forum to be held December 1-3 at Sheraton Charlotte Airport Hotel.

Textile World has covered the North American textile industry for more than 145 years and is member of the Textile Industries Media Group, a division of Billian Publishing, Inc., headquartered in Atlanta.
