SHENZHEN, China, May 20, 2011 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- Winner Medical Group Inc. (Nasdaq: WWIN; "Winner Medical" or "the Company"), a leading manufacturer of medical dressings, medical disposables and non-woven fabric made from 100% natural PurCotton® products in China, today proudly announced that its PurCotton Industrial Wipes was nominated one of the finalists for the World of Wipes ("WOW") Innovation Award™.
The Company will compete with the other five finalists at Grand Hyatt, Buckhead Atlanta, Georgia on June 15th, 2011. WOW, a far-reaching and heavily-influenced international conference for the global wipes industry, is held annually by INDA, a highly regarded and active organizer for global nonwoven industry activities.
The Company was selected over many other competitors due to its innovative PurCotton® Wipes fabric and design characteristics for industry use. This innovation is admired by the industry group because it is highlighted by two key differentiators, which include 1) the application of the Company's patented 100% cotton spunlace nonwoven technology, which utilizes scouring instead of bleaching, while keeping the final product soft, consistent in feel, and enables significant absorbency of water, oil and grease; 2) the raw material utilized is 100% cotton, which maintains the natural fibers without adding in any chemicals. Therefore, the product can be 100% bio-degradable, a key characteristic of being eco-friendly and sustainable.
"We are quite honored to learn that we are one of the final six. This shows that our proprietary production process and user friendly product are highly regarded by the industry professionals. It also underscores that PurCotton® products enjoy significant competitive edges, especially PurCotton® Wipes for Industry Use, a well-orchestrated combination of quality, versatility and protection for environment," says Ms. Lizzie Zhao, Marketing manager of Winner Medical, representing the Company at the WOW conference.
Competing against Winner Medical, the other final five nominees are famous global names including Atlantic Mills, Irish Breeze Ltd, Johnson & Johnson, Professional Disposables International, Inc. (PDI) and SS/PR. These five companies will be displaying their innovative products or services at the conference with Winner Medical.
