Twitchell Technical Products, a portfolio company of Highlander Partners, has purchased fabrics and coated films maker The Quantum Group. The acquisition of Quantum reinforces Highlander's “ongoing strategy of executing strategic add-on acquisitions that expand our portfolio companies' product offerings and market share,” states Highlander CEO Mike Nicolais.
Quantum manufactures yarn and knitted fabric materials for the furniture, construction, recreational, industrial, healthcare, automotive and airline industries. Founded in 1985, the target has production capabilities to produce materials in custom colors, flame retardants, and mono-, bi- and tri-component. The target even produced the roof fabric used today on the Centre Court at the Wimbledon Tennis Center. Quantum manufactures its materials from its facility in Colfax, North Carolina.
