Westex by Milliken is pleased to announce it won a 2018 Readers’ Choice Award for best protective
fabrics, presented by Canadian Occupational Safety magazine. Nearly 1,200 Canadian industry
professionals voted in the awards program, in which Westex by Milliken was chosen as one of the top
three out of 13 companies vying for the best protective fabrics category.
“It is an honor to have the Canadian industry choose Westex by Milliken as one of the best
manufacturers of flame-resistant (FR) fabrics,” shared Steve Layton, vice president of Westex by
Milliken. “We take great pride and responsibility in providing innovative FR fabric to make everyday FR
apparel a simple and desired solution to unexpected arc flash and flash fire hazards — we stake our
reputation on it. This esteemed recognition reaffirms our commitment to bringing innovative FR apparel
to market, enabling our customers to focus on their specific tasks at hand.”
Westex by Milliken leverages more than 60 years of experience for a portfolio of over 60 styles of
AR/FR fabrics for effective everyday personal protective equipment. Their award-winning fabrics
uniquely combine market-proven FR protection with stretch, breathability, moisture wicking and other
desired comfort qualities, which make FR apparel attractive for daily wear. Furthermore, all Westex®
branded fabrics pass rigorous third-party certifications as supporting evidence for performance.
The Canadian Occupational Safety Readers’ Choice Award marks the third award given to Westex by
Milliken in 2018. Earlier this year, the company also won EC&M magazine Product of the Year for safety
equipment and workwear, and ISHN magazine’s Readers’ Choice for arc flash/flame resistant apparel.
