TRION, GEORGIA – SEPT. 21, 2017 – Mount Vernon FR continues to innovate and grow, expanding the company’s global footprint for flame resistant fabrics. In addition to the United States and Canada – where Mount Vernon FR has had a steady presence for the last several years – Mount Vernon FR fabric will now be available in Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, and Central and South America. The company’s expansion will open distribution channels for Mount Vernon FR fabrics in these regions, helping to fulfill increasing demand.
“This is a strategic move in growing the global supply chain for Mount Vernon FR fabrics,” said Mike Woods, vice president of flame resistant fabrics for Mount Vernon FR.

“Expanding our footprint to additional regions is a logical next step as our business continues to innovate and grow, and the expansion enables us to provide customers across the globe with access to durable, high-performing fabrics from Mount Vernon FR,” added Woods.
