Fabric license partnership
28 August 2013
Arco has signed a partnership with GORE-TEX fabric manufacturer Gore, making Arco the only industrial distributor in Europe to hold a GORE-TEX Brand Trade Mark License for waterproof garments and footwear.
From September, Arco will use its trademark licensee status to manufacture a new range of own brand hazardwear, weatherwear and footwear products using GORE-TEX Fabric, which is known worldwide for durable weather protection.
Other garments in the new range will be manufactured with GORE-TEX Heat & Flame Garments with GORE Pyrad Fabric Technology, which offers a combination of thermal and flashover burn protection. Flame retardant, waterproof, windproof and breathable, the garments will offer wearers total protection.
