Flags from each participating country welcome visitors to The Seydel Companies' headquarters.

Agents, customers and employees from Colombia, Mexico, India, Bangladesh and Singapore visited our corporate headquarters the week of June 20th to share knowledge of the latest industry trends and learn firsthand about Seydel’s new product innovations from our team of experts.

The packed agenda included informative sessions on our new product development initiatives, including our line of Eco-friendly, organic polymer size products that completely replace PVOH.

Other sessions highlighted the latest best practices in textile spun and filament sizing, denim fabrication and finishing, garment wet processing, continuous bleaching and indigo dying.

President & CEO, Scott Seydel, delivers an insightful presentation on the Shift to Sustainable Packaging

There was also a special break out session led by our President and CEO, Scott Seydel, on the shift to sustainable packaging and Seydel’s long history of replacing non-recyclable paraffin wax coated transfer packaging with fully recyclable alternatives.  Scott illustrated how end users, such as restaurants, groceries and other retailers, are saving thousands in disposal costs, and in some cases, earning new revenue streams by using packaging treated with our products, rather than paraffin wax.

All participants received hands-on demonstrations in our state of the art laboratories, and several also took advantage of the opportunity to visit local textile and corrugating plants during their stay, where they could see our chemistry in action.

Participants enjoy a relaxing evening cooling off in the North Georgia mountains at Lake Rabun.

The week was not all work, however.  Participants enjoyed famous Atlanta attractions including the Georgia Aquarium, the World of Coca-Cola, and Stone Mountain Park.  We also had a wonderful evening boating and cooling off along the shores of Lake Rabun, a beautiful setting nestled high in the North Georgia mountains.

We hope you will join us for our next Global Technical Training, currently slated for Fall, 2011.  For more information, please contact Linda Scoggins at linda@seydel.com.
