A UK, Reading based company has developed a range of sports clothes that incorporate patented infrared technology to enhance performance and speed up recovery. They are now expanding the product line and looking for manufacturers of medical grade compression socks, preferably using Celliant yarn
The British company, made up of both scientists and sportsmen, is a spin out from University of Reading with the aim to commercialise sports clothes with a new technology. The infrared technology in the clothes increases circulation and oxygen level in tissues by 20%, it also helps increase energy levels and enhances cellural metabolism.
Their current collection includes men's and women's baselayers, gym clothes, thermal clothes and they are now adding compression socks.
They are looking for a partner who is already manufacturing compression socks and who preferably uses Celliant yarn as this has more medical certifications than alternatives. However, they are willing to consider manufacturers who currently use Innergy yarn, which is the second best option. Manufacturers who can make compression socks, are using neither yarn, but are willing to use Celliant, are welcome as well.
The company will not consider partners who currently are not manufacturing compression socks.
As the partner will already be manufacturing compression socks and therefore will have the required machines.
In addition to the requirement for yarn, they need a higher level/class of compression: around 20 – 30mmHg.
Apart from that they expect to order the following quantities:
- 8,000 pieces in the next 12 months
- 60,000 pieces in the following 12 months
- 100,000 pieces in the 12 months following that.
Partner needs to be currently manufacturing compression socks.
Size of the company doesn't matter as much their ability to supply the quantities specified, so a mid-sized manufacturer is more likely, but other's are not excluded.
