Rajiv Sharma, Group Chief Executive, said: “This is an exciting and innovative strategic move. We are investing in future technology which will improve our industry and its sustainability by directly addressing the key needs of our customers: speed, innovation and sustainability. The disruptive technology has the potential to revolutionize the thread industry and Coats will work closely with Twine to commercialize this opportunity.”
