Pullen, formerly vice president of sales, makes the move from New York City in order to serve cruise line owners, operators, architects and designers from the company’s new location while working closely with the company’s Chile and Brazil-based vertical mills.
‘Our goal is to introduce mill-direct opportunities to an industry that hasn’t had the chance to experience them before’, explains Leo Novik, ceo and founder, Fil Doux Textiles. ‘Robert is motivated to educate the industry on Fil Doux Textiles’ sustainable, luxurious options’.
Focus on sustainability
Alleged by the company to be the first-ever degradable vinyl alternative, Fil Doux Textiles’ Otratex meets stringent hygiene and sanitation standards including those set by the International Maritime Organization (IMO). Treated with Pro-Tech Plus, a powerful bleach cleanable, water-based ink and denim protectant, it is salt-friendly and will not erode under the strength of industrial-grade cleaners.
‘It’s exciting to be able to bring new products –– especially ones that are bleach cleanable and help to put guests and property owners at ease’, comments Pullen.
