Our clients say it better than we can -
"I worked with Propel on at least 4 projects over 5 years, and can say they are a company that is not easy to describe in a sound byte. They have a wealth of experience in textile materials and processes and are able to think about a problem and its solution from conceptualization through full scale manufacturing, with attention to both design and business detail. Additionally, I believe their integrity affords them the ability to extract innovation from their network of partners on projects that many companies would consider too far out to pay attention to."
