Our commitment is to solve problems at their source. To see little discoveries become big ideas. Disruptive ideas. Industry-changing ideas. Our vow is to unwind the impossible. To find a way forward when no path exists. To invent a future that performs at levels previously unrealized. Our promise is to provide a meaningful difference to enhance the value and worth of those who innovate with us. This is our pledge to our partners – to further the Science of Fabric.
Established in 1906 as Malden Mills, Polartec is the premium provider of innovative textile solutions. Since inventing modern synthetic fleece in 1981, our engineers have advanced the science of fabric, creating fabric technologies that solve problems and improve the way products are designed and used. Our products range from lightweight wicking and cooling fabrics, to insulation and weather protection textiles, and are utilized by leading consumer brands, the U.S. Military and other global militaries, flame resistant, workwear, and contract upholstery markets.
From our factories in the U.S. and across the globe, we continue to develop category defining fabrics used in the most challenging environments around the world. By providing solutions to seemingly impossible problems, we collaborate with the world’s leading brands to invent what doesn’t yet exist. We challenge the status-quo of the industry at every layer, turning shortcomings into new solutions. Our global manufacturing network means we make fabric closer to where it is needed, with improved efficiency, quality assurance, and enhanced capabilities. Our supply chain is built from industry-leading investments in sustainable manufacturing and our compliance meets or exceeds all mandated standards, globally.
