Core customers for the companys FR fabrics include Carhartt and Cintas, two of the biggest users of FR fabrics for workwear in the USA. This report provides insight into the companys structure and development as well as an analysis of Mount Vernon FR fabrics. In addition, it provides insight into Mount Vernon Mills major customers.
