The Challenge

Trendex needed a sample package offering to compliment the existing complete package services, and now we have both! Trendex has acquired SwatchWorks, a fabric samplemanufacturer located in Minnesota.

The Solution

With SwatchWorks, Trendex customers now will have access to a complete range of textile sampling systems, making Trendex a resource for an entire presentation package. Trendex has retained all of SwatchWorks's equipment which is now incorporated into production.

About the Product

Founded in 1961, SwatchWorks is a privately held manufacturer of fabric sample cards, upholstery swatches, display boards and more, serving the upholstery, apparel, drapery and marine industries. Over its 50+ years in business, the company has developed reputation for being cost-efficient, flexible, innovative and reliable. "Trendex is a very complimentary business, a natural fit for SwatchWorks. Trendex does complete packages, SwatchWorks does sample pages," summarizes Trendex president Jeff Polacek.
