Rhode Island Textile Innovation Network (RITIN) Meeting

  • Meeting 8:00 – 10:00 AM (Optional tour 10:00 -11:00 AM)
    October 18, 2017
    8:00 am - 10:00 am

The Rhode Island Textile Innovation Network (RITIN) includes representatives from textile companies and the textile supply chain across the state.

At our next meeting, October 18, 2017, from 8 am – 10 am at Kenyon Industries, 36 Sherman Avenue, Kenyon, RI, you will hear about our plans to improve the textile industry ecosystem state-wide. Now that funding for Year One of RITIN’s funding has been secured, we’re ready to move forward on the goals discussed at the last meeting at RISD:

  • Marketing our supply chain capabilities to other states and even other countries
  • Reversing what we believe is a negative perception of the textile industry in Rhode Island
  • Designing job training programs specifically for the textile industry

An optional tour of Kenyon Industries will be offered immediately following the meeting.

 

Whether you represent a textile company or are part of our textile supply chain, you are welcome and encouraged to register and attend this meeting.

 

RITIN is supported by Commerce RI, the RI Department of Labor and Training Real Jobs program, and Polaris MEP, which serves as RITIN’s fiscal agent.
