Textile Company PurThread Technologies Opens Headquarters in Durham, North Carolina and Hires New Senior Staff
Date:6/26/2012

DURHAM, N.C., June 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --  A new medical textile company has established its headquarters in Durham, North Carolina. PurThread Technologies, a development-stage biotech firm dedicated to using antimicrobial textile technology to help hospitals reduce the bioburden in the patient environment, chose Durham for its access to key textile and medical industry players.  The new PurThread headquarters also brings with it two new senior staff; Dr. Stanley D. Chamberlain as the new Chief Scientific Officer and Michael Weldon as the new Senior Director of Sales for the Northeast Region.  The company's founder and current Chief Scientific Officer, Stephen Foss will now serve as PurThread's Chief Technology Officer.

"Durham is a great place for us," said Bill O'Neill Vice President of Infection Control Applications at PurThread Technologies. "Here we are surrounded by the medical and textile industry ecosystem and closer to many current and potential partners. We are thrilled to call Durham home and look forward to supporting the economy here and throughout the Carolinas."

PurThread develops textiles, such as privacy curtains, linens and hospital garments that help to reduce the level of bioburden on hard-to-clean soft surfaces in healthcare environments, as well as in military and consumer applications. The textiles employ the antimicrobial effects of silver, copper and other elements in a proprietary Complex Element Compound to create a continuously active and soft textile. Studies have shown that reducing the level of bioburden within the patient environment can lead to a reduction in healthcare associated infections (HAIs). In the US, 100,000 people die each year from HAIs making them the fourth largest cause of mortality according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
