WASHINGTON — After two decades of consolidation in the U.S. textile industry, three textile lobbying and trade groups have agreed to merge and form a new association with a more unified and stronger voice in Washington.
Citing 30 years of “failed government trade policy” and contraction in the textile industry, the National Textile Association — the oldest textile trade association in the U.S. — said Wednesday that it has voted to cease operations and turn its assets and membership list over to the National Council of Textile Organizations. The merger will be effective Monday, according to NTA.
