With no local manufacturing of solution dyed acrylic fabric, the market is heavily dependent on imports especially from Europe and North America, which results in long lead times and high costs. With Sol-Out® brand, we are looking to offer quick service and delivery in addition to the performance guarantee that comes with Durashine™ fibre. We have had a great response from our customers and we have very aggressive plans for the market”, adds Russel.
