JEC Takes One Step Further with an
Enriched Offer of Services and a Strategic Alliance with Messe Frankfurt, Inc.
for North America
2014 Will Feature Significant New Additions to JEC’s Comprehensive
Offering of Capabilities to Better Serve American Composites Companies
BOSTON – JEC, the world-renowned resource for composites industry services, support and expertise, today announced a new strategic partnership with Messe Frankfurt, Inc. – a major global tradeshow organizer – in a move designed to significantly broaden the group’s already robust array of resources for the Americas. Marking another major step forward in its 50-year history serving the Americas composites industry, JEC will leverage its new relationship with Messe Frankfurt, Inc. to co-locate its new annual springtime JEC Americas Composites Show & Conference from May 13-15, 2014 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta with two of Messe Frankfurt, Inc.’s events: Techtextil North America and Texprocess Americas.
As a permanent source of knowledge and networking, JEC Group’s strategy is to strengthen its activity both on a global basis and in its three main regions (America, Europe and Asia). In North America, JEC Group is fully committed to serving the American composites industry through its media, summits, clusters and, starting in 2014, two annual events: a new spring JEC Americas event in Atlanta and the now well-established JEC Americas Conference in Boston each autumn.
“We are very proud to announce our new strategic alliance with Messe Frankfurt, Inc.,” said Mrs. Frédérique Mutel, JEC Group President and CEO. “The Americas are a major global center of composites innovation, and are a beacon for industry players who wish to compete and thrive in the largest worldwide market. Teaming up with Messe Frankfurt, Inc. allows a strong presentation of technical textiles and composites solutions that will drive both industries forward. The JEC Board of Administration representing the composites industry is actively supporting this new cooperation.”
Three Events, One Location
JEC’s third annual JEC Americas Exhibition & Conference in Atlanta will focus on the full composites value chain – from raw materials to manufacturing processes – and further underscores JEC’s unyielding commitment to the Americas’ composites industry. To be launched in conjunction with Messe Frankfurt, Inc.’s Techtextil North America and Texprocess Americas, the 2014 JEC event will bring together global stakeholders in the composites industry to one place.
The JEC Americas Exhibition & Conference will incorporate many of the popular programs currently featured in all its platforms, including the Innovative Composites Summit Conferences, Innovation Awards and Innovation Showcase. Because mass production innovations in composites are at the heart of the event, Atlanta is the ideal location. The city offers an expansive scientific network with more than 30 universities, including the Georgia Institute of Technology, and is part of a key manufacturing area in the Americas. Further, Atlanta offers convenient access from virtually anywhere in the world.
Co-location with Techtextil and Texprocess will expand the value of the combined event, enabling JEC to showcase larger-scale production opportunities and offering convenient access to three simultaneous industry exhibitions. This new alliance and show provides an unparalleled opportunity for composites designers, manufacturers and suppliers to showcase their technologies, expand their expertise and network with a wide array of industry professionals. Attendees can gain a competitive edge in this ever growing market, helping to fulfill one of JEC’s key missions of sharing leading edge innovations within the composites market.

Since last August, the US Navy has been planning to phase out its iconic traditional wool peacoat in favor of a less expensive, synthetic cold weather parka which is lighter in weight and more versatile in types of inclement weather. It actually replaces two types of coats and the seabag the wool coat is stored.
The wool coat, however, has some powerful friends in the US Congress. Companies such as Northwest Woolen Mills in Woonsocket, R.I. and Sterlingware in Boston, Mass. Altogether, the supply chain involved in the manufacture of these woolen peacoats -- including sheep farmers -- is estimated to account for 400 jobs in the Northeast. Add to the drama that the new parka, made by the long-time military supplier Propper, is expected to be manufactured in Puerto Rico, a perceived feeling the new coat will be made by non-American workers.

The Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) has released President Trump's 2017 Trade Policy Agenda.

Back on March 24, 2016, I was one of the first to predict the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement was a dead deal. In fact, I said that I wouldn’t be surprised that, if Donald Trump became President, the agreement is shredded on day one of his new administration. Well, I was off by three days. Yesterday, President Trump signed an Executive Order, officially withdrawing the United States from the TPP agreement. Now the question is can the National Council of Textile Organizations put together a comprehensive plan for the domestic textile industry in a post-TPP era? Click here to read the rest.

Domestic PFD Manufacturer's Application for FTZ Additional Production Authority Riles Textile Industry Trade Associations. There is a nasty fight taking place these past few months behind the closed doors of Room 48019 at the Herbert C. Hoover Building in Washington, D.C. The room is the office of the Foreign-Trade Zones Board. The fight pits domestic technical textile industry suppliers and a coalition of textile-trade associations against a fairly large domestic end-product cut-and-sew manufacturer.

In 2015, I posted more than 425 items of interest for our industry on the BeaverLake6 Report website. In reviewing it all last week, it got me to thinking about putting together a list of influential events, news and trends that I observed during the past year. I have focused primarily on the US marketplace but each of “the things that mattered” to me has global implications.
So, here go my thoughts in no particular order of importance. Let me know if you agree or if I have missed some. Click here to read the list.
