Northern Textile Association.

Hide Profile

Located in Boston, the Northern Textile Assoc. traces its history to 1854, the founding date of the Hampden County Cotton Spinners Assoc. In 1865 the name was changed to the New England Cotton Manufacturers' Assoc. (NECMA) and in 1906, in an effort to expand its market, it became the National Association of Cotton Manufacturers (NACM). In 1953 NACM filed incorporating papers for the Northern Textile Assoc. (NTA) which ran in tandem with NACM. In 1956 NACM members voted to officially change the name to the Northern Textile Assoc. to represent all types of U.S. textile manufacturers. In 2002 a merger with the Knitted Textile Assoc. resulted in its present name: the National Textile Assoc. NTA represents over 150 textile manufacturers and industry suppliers in the U.S., Canada and Mexico. As a non-profit trade organization its mission is to provide representation in Washington, D.C. for a broad range of American fabric companies and to promote the use of American-made fabrics.
