Innovating for a Safer World
OTEX serves demanding industries and delivers performance excellence. Our clients come from industries as varied as Aerospace, Fire and Safety, Industrial Safety, Military and Medical Device Manufacturers. OTEX develops powerful and collegial business partnerships with our clients. We look to the future with them and help them deliver products their customers demand.
OTEX is a company rich in weaving history spanning 14 generations reaching back to 1560 in Lyon, France. In 2016 we realized that our company had outgrown our family name: the technologies we use, the innovations we develop, the markets we serve and most importantly our mission had changed.
Today, we weave to the highest standards to save lives and prevent injury. We renamed the company OTEX. For Denise A. Offray, 4th Generation owner and our executive management team our new name both acknowledges the family history as weavers and the leading advanced textile manufacturer that we have become.
OTEX is an inaugural member of AFFOA (Advanced Functional Fabrics of America ). A consortium housed at MIT that is funded with $75 million by the Department of Defense and $240 million from private enterprise. AFFOA brings together universities, government and private enterprises ranging from fabric manufacturers, to software and nanotechnology developers to develop the next generation of technical textiles.
Today, we offer our clients research and design services from our Watsontown, PA manufacturing facilities where we utilize the latest fibers and advanced manufacturing techniques. Our leading quality control and test lab delivers the quality assurance our markets demand.
