Quality Thread & Notions (QTN) is celebrating its 100th year anniversary as a thread and notions supplier. The company started as a supplier of sewing thread to the apparel industry in 1922. In the 1990’s, the company shifted its focus to the industrial market due to declining opportunities in the U.S. apparel market. Over the past 100 years, the company has grown to create industry-leading brands and provide thread, zippers, hook & loop, elastic, webbing and plastic hardware to commercial and industrial markets.
Some of the company’s most successful products include SolarFix® PTFE Thread, Sunguard+ UVR bonded polyester, high-spec bonded nylon and Vision UV-resistant embroidery thread.
Robert Heintz, company president, credits QTN’s employees for its success over the years. “We are honored to have long-term and very talented people who work well together as a team,” Heintz said in a press release. “This 100-year milestone is a testament to the commitment of our employees who are truly passionate about delivering superior customer service, to go with our award-winning products.”
The company looks forward to the next 100 years by expanding into different markets and continuing to develop products that offer more customer solutions, including a new full line catalog and the QTN Quick Connect Web Store. The company says it has invested heavily in inventory, marketing, new product development, operations and warehousing.
