EMPEL® by Green Theme Technologies delivers unmatched textile performance & sustainability for Japanese market
News Articles | Press Releases

Green Theme Technologies (GTT), creators of the PFAS-free and water-free EMPEL® textile finishing platform, now delivers advanced performance and a long term sustainability solution to the Japanese market.

EMPEL® is an unmatched solution for textile mills looking to provide clean, high-performance finishes, and GTT actively promotes this innovative technology to all relevant Japanese companies, including mills, manufacturers, and brands. YKK, the Japanese global leader in zipper manufacturing, has already adopted the EMPEL® technology into their manufacturing process and promotes the technology globally in their new DynaPel™ collection.

GTT’s activities in Japan are supported by the Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO), a government-related organization that works to promote mutual trade and investment between Japan and the rest of the world. GTT has been approved for JETRO’s Invest Japan Support Program, which allows GTT to leverage its resources to set up an office in Japan in the future and for J-Bridge Program to forge relationships with prospective Japanese partners.

“Japan’s textile market is a place of innovation and quality. Japanese mills understand that innovation is the path to keep their companies growing and competitive in the future,” said Martin Flora, President of Business Development for GTT. “EMPEL® is a natural choice for any textile manufacturer looking to provide clean, high performance textile solutions for water repellency, stain resistance, and anti-wicking properties. We appreciate the support from JETRO in connecting us to the Japanese textile and fashion industries.”

Internationally acclaimed Japanese brand YKK Fastening Products employs EMPEL® technology on their new DynaPel™ water-repellent zipper to eliminate the use of a PU film, making these new zippers easier to use, and more compatible with garment recycling systems. This innovative system won YKK a highly sought after ISPO Textrends Best Product Award.

We would not exist, or certainly not in New Mexico, if it were not for Cottonwood. Until Cottonwood got involved we struggled to get attention from other capital providers. Cottonwood has been a real catalyst, beyond their money, to upgrading our management team, opening doors to potential strategic investors and customers and focusing on our market entry strategy. Cottonwood has been a great partner in driving our success in every area. I truly believe they wake up every day looking for ways and ideas that can support our success.

Cottonwood began working with me a year before they closed their first fund. Even though they weren’t initially in a position to invest they still opened doors to potential investors and customers, and assisted with the fund raising strategy and execution plan. Once their fund was closed they took an aggressive lead role in pulling together our first round and helping us launch the company. Now after having raised almost $150M they continue to support our growth, provide valuable advice and open doors to additional resources as we need them. We have been fortunate to have Cottonwood as a partner in building our company.
