Corona Virus Response MASK PRODUCTION

While not fully operational, we are grateful to be permitted to reopen. We appreciate your patience with fulfillment delays as we work through the backlog with limited staff. 

Our new efforts to manufacture protective masks have evolved considerably in the past 48 hours. Guided by the Manufacturing Association of Greater Philadelphia, we soon will be partnering with other local business to sew surgical masks, and medical clothing. In addition we are supporting the hundreds of home-based workrooms across the country in a grassroots effort to make cotton fabric masks. Check out this article highlighting one of these workrooms.  https://www.goupstate.com/news/20200323/lending-helping-hand-srhs-has-received-10000-donations-of-masks-other-equipment

Lastly, we are developing our own engineered print design for stylized masks. This would allow YOU to participate, if you like, by providing permission to use your artwork. Stay tuned-  more on that soon!

For now, the workroom volunteers across the country are having difficulty finding 3/8″ or 1/4″ elastic and any size cotton twill tape. If you have some, or can purchase some, that you would be willing to donate, please send it to Adaptive Textiles, Attn: MASKS, and we will distribute to the volunteers. 
 
Warm regards,

Corona Virus Response UPDATE- REOPENING

To our valued clients,
 
Last night, the state of Pennsylvania modified the list of businesses permitted to remain open. Adaptive Textiles now falls within that category. This, in addition to our new efforts to manufacture ‘surgical’ masks for home use, allows us to reopen, effective Tuesday morning.  On-site staffing and operations will still be limited in order to comply with strict social distancing guidelines.
 
Please contact your account manager to discuss prioritization of your projects, both current and future.
 
We wish everyone the best during this difficult time and will continue to provide updates as the situation changes.
 

Warm regards,

Corona Virus Response UPDATE- PA BUSINESS CLOSURES

To our valued clients,
 
This evening, Pennsylvania’s Governor Tom Wolf ordered the closure of ALL Pennsylvania businesses that are not ‘life-sustaining’, effective immediately. 
 
While our account managers will continue to be available via email, all production at our physical location has temporarily ceased. It is unclear for how long the closure will be in effect. We regret the unavoidable delays in fulfillment and appreciate your patience and understanding as we all work through this crisis together.
 
We will continue to send updates as we learn more (especially regarding our re-opening), and we wish everyone good health during this difficult time.
 

Warm regards,

Corona Virus Response UPDATE

To our valued clients,
 
To support our state and county efforts to slow the spread of the Coronavirus, including the recently announced closure of all Pennsylvania non-essential retail stores for at least two weeks, we are revising our response to the crisis. Our new protocol will include reductions in staffing and production to maintain social distancing and further reduce the risk of exposure.
 
Beginning tomorrow, account managers will be working from home and are available to remotely process new orders and track orders in queue. Printers, warehouse workers, and workroom staff will be working under a limited and staggered schedule. While we will do our best to maintain promised delivery dates, we appreciate your understanding if you experience some delay in order fulfillment. 
 
At this time, we are all healthy and have had no known exposure to the virus. As the situation evolves, we will keep you updated.

We appreciate your patience and hope you all stay well, too!
 

Warm regards,

Jeanelle Dech

Corona Virus Response

To our valued clients,

The spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) is on all our minds and in the news. We’d like to reassure you that Adaptive Textiles has been monitoring this situation closely to ensure we can meet your ongoing needs while still doing our part to slow the spread of the virus and flatten the curve.

With the steps we’ve taken thus far (including cross-training, work-from-home options, and social distancing within and outside our facility), we are maintaining production and fulfilling orders with our usual timing.

When and if our situation changes, we will keep you informed.

In the meantime, we hope that you all stay well.  Please reach out to your account manager if you have any questions or concerns.

Warm regards,

Jeanelle Dech

Ongoing Improvement: DO-NOT-CUT Stickers

Beginning Dec 1, 2019, Adaptive Textiles will be applying unbranded DO-NOT-CUT stickers to all printed yardage shipments. This notice will be placed on the outside of the roll where it will be necessary for the receiver to remove before the fabric is processed with the hopes that errors are caught before the yardage is treated or made into finished goods. The sticker will also prompt receivers to inspect goods before the 30 day claims period expires.

Checklines

Sometimes called a ‘Confidence Stripe’, checklines are printed along the selvage of the fabric. The entire group of lines is less than half an inch wide, and each strip of color represents a single print head. Checklines allow us to monitor the performance of each ink head on the printer individually and potentially fix any issues that may arise before they affect the print. We can often see from these lines if a single ink head is malfunctioning before it drops out completely and changes the composite color of the print.

Moving forward, we will include these checklines during the course of ALL prints to alleviate potential interruptions and greatly reduce fabric waste.

New Printers and Move

We are thrilled to announce that beginning in April, Adaptive Textiles will be adding two new Mimaki TX300P pigment printers to our operation. We have had fifteen years of outstanding performance from our DuPont Artistri 2020 printers, and they will remain our primary mode of production as we undergo a thorough R&D phase and begin to incorporate the new technology. We are pleased to gain a foothold on the latest generation of textile printers so that we can continue to offer the highest quality service possible for years to come. 

In concert with the printing equipment additions, Adaptive Textiles is also relocating to a new facility (just one building over) on Westtown Road.  This 13,000 sq ft location (2.5x our existing space) offers a climate-controlled printer area, expanded workroom and offices, and a full warehouse, complete with loading docks! 

With all of these exciting changes, you can rest easy and trust that our team is working diligently so that you experience NO INTERRUPTIONS IN SERVICE. We will update you with our new shipping address when we are fully operational in the new space. Until then, wish us good weather in early March for the smoothest possible transition.
