The Textile Intelligence Centre (TIC), Leeds University

·         Established in July 1992 to provide a strategic intelligence resource to the UK textile and apparel industries.

·         The TIC was set-up as a not-for-profit organization to undertake research into competitive issues on behalf of sponsoring organizations.  Permanent members included 9 textile and clothing companies, the UK Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) and Barclays Bank.

·         In addition, special projects were undertaken for national and international clients.

·         In 1995 and 1997 the TIC successfully bid for institutional (EU and UK government) funding which extended its commercially sponsored activities.

·         The TIC was wound down and closed in 1998 following my resignation from the University. 

 

Textile Apparel Business Intelligence Consortium, (TABIC) NC State University

·         Seed funding was obtained from the North Carolina Textile Foundation (NCTF) in fall 1999 to produce a report that would assist understanding of strategic change in the industries.  The report was distributed to NCTF members in Fall 2000 and then sold nationally and internationally – primarily to universities with textile and apparel programs.

·         A consortium led by the American Textile Manufacturers Institute, the American Fiber Manufacturer’s Association and the National Cotton Council was formed to support TABIC but dissolved when ATMI imploded and eventually disappeared in 2002.

·         Special projects performed for a number of clients between Fall 2000 and Summer 2002.
