Peter Broom, Director & Technical Innovator at Meryl Fabrics comments: “We feel extremely honoured and proud to receive such high-profile industry recognition. Meryl Fabrics has come up with a solution to reduce our impact on the environment today, and we are innovating every day to improve what we have. Adopting Meryl Fabrics in large textile use industries will massively reduce the amount of virgin polymer being manufactured and would significantly reduce human environmental impact. In turn this also helps our customers achieve their own internal green targets.”
