The companies say that VESTEX garments are designed to minimize the risks to healthcare workers associated with unexpected exposures to body fluids during everyday use.
The co-exclusive sales and marketing agreement covers acute and post-acute healthcare facilities in the United States and Canada. Standard Textile healthcare sales representatives will be supported by Vestagen personnel, who will also take the lead on working with institutional customers during the implementation process.
“For over 70 years, Standard Textile has been synonymous with innovation in the hospitality, healthcare, workwear and consumer sectors,” says Norman Frankel, executive vice president of sales at Standard Textile.
“With VESTEX, we are offering breakthrough technology for healthcare workers that complements our existing specialty product lines designed to address the unique needs of healthcare institutions. The growing environmental risks to workers and patients in the healthcare setting are well-documented.”
“This strategic partnership with Standard Textile, one of the best established and most respected innovators in healthcare and hospitality textiles, is potentially transformational for Vestagen,” says Bill Bold, CEO of Vestagen Protective Technologies.
“Healthcare uniforms made with our unique VESTEX Active Barrier fabric are increasingly being adopted by healthcare leaders such as New York’s Northwell Health. This partnership with Standard Textile now gives us the reach to bring VESTEX garments to healthcare workers throughout the U.S. and Canada.”
