Technitextile.ca - The Technical Textiles Industry
TechniTextile Québec, a cluster created in 2017, brings together industrial, technical, scientific and government stakeholders involved in the value chain of technical textile materials in Québec. This cluster's purpose is to foster partnerships with industrial, commercial and institutional organizations to create value, support innovation, boost commercialization and foster job creation from a sustainable development standpoint.
This hub of expertise brings together companies and organizations from different areas of the economy that integrate textiles into their products — primarily the furniture, construction, defence, environmental, civil engineering, recreational, medical, safety, sports, transportation and technical clothing sectors.
With the support of many industry executives and representatives, the TechniTextile Québec team and its Board of Directors lead collaborative and innovative projects in line with its action plan. The organization put in place two working groups for the Construction and Furniture sector and the Safety and Defence sector (including personal protective equipment). This cluster also aims to increase the visibility of Québec textiles, here and abroad, and bolster access to its technical expertise and support services.
