Since 1979 [TC]² has turned research into reality from design to delivery for the fashion industry. We are the premier innovation incubator, trusted consultancy and technology ground breaker for retailers, brands and manufacturers. We identify and solve global challenges through implementing progressive technology, driving lean processes through the product life cycle and empowering employee engagement.
The products we offer are direct results of our research initiatives and based on technologies that we believe will move the industry forward. Our focus is on products that provide enhancements to product development, production of sewn products as well as improve the consumer experience. Some of our products are the direct result of partnerships within the industry, such as our digital printing initiative, and others from outside of it, like our ImageTwin full retail solution. The [TC]² 3D body scanner continues to be developed in partnership. We also showcase products from our Associate Members at our Apex, NC headquarters, such as 2D and 3D pattern making software, an automated fabric cutting machine, digital fabric printing and more. Contact us to discuss our products or set up an appointment to tour our technology showcase.
