Give 'em a hand.
Industry trade organizations like INDA, EDANA and ANFA are continuously educating the public on the merits of nonwovens. Machinery and equipment and raw material suppliers are coming up with new ways to make nonwovens. Roll goods producers are constantly adding new features and values to their products and the end use companies that buy products are spearheading this innovation by developing new products to keep their customers satisfied.
All of this innovation deserves to be recognized. It was with this in mind that the nonwovens trade associations began sponsoring award programs in conjunction with shows and conferences. This year, there will be two forums for nonwovens-related companies to be recognized--The Visionary Awards and The IDEA Achievement Awards. The Visionary Awards, held in conjunction with the Vision Consumer Products Conference, recognize products that have helped advance the role of nonwovens in consumer markets. Past winners include Procter & Gamble's Swiffer and FMJ Biotech's Quick Escape Mask. Meanwhile, the IDEA Awards recognize achievement in several categories--end use, roll goods, raw materials, machinery and equipment and entrepreneur, and will be presented at the IDEA Exposition in Miami this spring.
To make sure the nomination process is fair, organizers need the help of the industry. If your company, or someone you know, has helped raise the bar for the nonwovens industry, nominate them for one of these prestigious awards. You can fred out how by going to www.nonwovens-industry.com.
