Fabric converter Qual-Fab taken private
June 1, 2007,
Hialeah , Fla. – Qual-Fab, a longtime printer and converter of decorative fabrics, has been sold to a private equity group, Innovo Capital of Miami .
Despite the dramatic exodus of American production in the decorative fabrics business, Becker is confident. “We are injecting cash into the business for equipment and new product lines, and see a lot of growth potential for existing product as well as new markets,” he explained.
“They are one of the biggest suppliers in the manufactured housing and recreational vehicles market,” Becker related. “Next we see an opportunity for them to produce small quantities for American manufacturers vs. the quantities that are needed from Asia . There’s also a big service model in terms of delivery.”
In addition, Qual-Fab, an early player in the digital printing arena, “has a great opportunity to maximize this, especially with the higher end of the market.” Becker added, “We like the history of the company, and Jil is spectacular.”
