As a company so steeped in scientific research and technology innovation, we’re extremely proud to have won this year’s American Technology Award in the Advanced Manufacturing/Technology Manufacturing category, which is focused on the rapid transfer of science and technology into manufacturing products and processes.

The awards are presented at the annual Technology and Government dinner in Washington, DC that celebrates the partnership between industry and government. Sponsored by the TechAmerica Foundation, the awards honor product excellence across the U.S. technology sector as determined by a panel of industry and technology experts.

The list of winners reads like a who’s who in technology and includes such giants as Google, Cloudera and FlashArray.

We very much appreciate the recognition and affirmation of PurThread’s innovative technology that embeds antimicrobial properties into raw textile materials, before it is spun into yarn and woven into textiles.


PurThreadTM Technologies Inc. is dedicated to developing proprietary antimicrobial textile technology. Our patent-pending, integration technology and fiber formulations incorporate an EPA-registered antimicrobial additive into every fiber and yarn to protect the fabric from degradation.

PurThread also makes a range of freshness products for other markets such as the military, emergency first responders and performance athletic wear in which our next-generation technology and fiber formulations expand the high performance options available to protect fabrics from odor, mold and mildew causing bacteria.
