Gehring Tricot Corporation and Fortune Fabrics Announce Partnership

Gehring Tricot Corporation, a NY State based manufacturer of knit and stretch woven goods for industrial, medical, military, and multiple other end uses and Fortune Fabrics/Wyoming Weavers, a Pennsylvania based weaver of high-end products for the hospitality and home furnishing trades have announced that they have reached an agreement to join forces to cross promote specific products and pool manufacturing assets. This new arrangement will allow Gehring to expand upon its strategy of servicing technical fabric markets. The entities plan to capitalize on their combined capabilities to increase share in various currently untapped markets.

Both companies believe that Gehring's extensive fabric finishing capabilities will enhance the already extensive Fortune/Wyoming product line. Fortune/Wyoming's ability to produce highly technical fabrics in small quantities will improve Gehring's ability to service more specialized technical markets.

The companies expect to begin marketing products and capabilities in early 2014.
