Beverly, Mass. (December 13, 2018) - Sciessent, the leading provider of antimicrobial and odor adsorption solutions for the textile and apparel industries, today announced their partnership with Yiwu Rouhui Knitting Co. Ltd. on their Mengbusi sock line.

When it comes to providing odor control on products such as socks, brands require a cost-effective solution that provides durability and performance. When Yiwu Rouhui Knitting searched for a technology for their products, Agion® Antimicrobial provided everything they needed.

As a growing brand in China, Yiwu Rouhui Knitting is always looking for the new trends and features that the consumer is looking for. Partnering with Sciessent on the development of the Mengbusi sock line was made easy by Sciessent’s Agion® technology and localized technical support team that worked closely with them on the development. Antimicrobial was a feature they quickly identified for the Mengusi line of socks. Mr. Ma of Yiwu Rouhui Knitting spoke about the technology saying, “We are expecting that Agion Antimicrobial will put this new product line of sock products ahead of the competition in the market.”
