W. L. Gore & Associates announces new North American distribution and manufacturing partners for the recently launched GORE® FR Apparel with GORE-TEX® PYRAD® fabric for the oil and gas market. GORE® FR Apparel is a new line of FR foul weather outerwear products designed to meet the demanding needs of oil and gas workers.

Tyndale USA, Wayne Enterprises, Apparel Solutions International, and The Coverall Shop will be the exclusive distributors of GORE® FR Apparel for the 2016 launch into the North American market. Product is immediately available through each of them to meet Fall/Winter demand.

“These distributors represent tremendous customer service and significant reach in alignment with our objectives for the brand,” says Sean McDearmon, market development champion. “We are confident in their ability to solidify GORE® FR Apparel with GORE-TEX® PYRAD® fabric as the new standard in foul weather outerwear throughout North America."

In addition to these distributors, Gore has added two key manufacturing partners to their oil and gas portfolio. Building off of their recent success with GORE-TEX® PYRAD® fabric offerings for the utility market, Lac-Mac and National Safety Apparel (NSA) will be adding styles specifically focused on the oil and gas worker.

“These partners reflect the values and integrity that Gore products represent to the end user. We are excited to grow these product lines with them,” says Eric Gaver, Business Leader – NA Energy Market.
