AKC Note: Westex is headquartered in Chicago with their plant in Sylvania, GA.  The company has achieved a strong level of expertise in the global Flame Resistant (FR) fabric industry. Applications are mainly in industrial end uses. Combining the Westex capabilities with Milliken’s strong presence in Specialty Fabrics brings together two of the market leaders in the industry. It is good to see Milliken committing further investments into the textile side of their business.
