York College's J.D. Brown Center for Entrepreneurship has welcomed vParadox as the fourth member of the business incubator, the college said on Wednesday.
The Spring Garden Township-based center offers office space, faculty and student intern support and access to the center's council of entrepreneurs.
vParadox and its four-person staff create 3-D woven garments with patented technology. It uses looms that traditionally make patterned fabric, which reduces manual cut and sew steps, according to a news release.
The company will offer a line of active wear for women, available beginning this summer, the release stated. vParadox also will license its technology to existing retailers for multiple product uses.
"Recruiting a company like vParadox to our incubator is a real coup for the region," center Executive Director Jeff Vermeulen said in a statement. "It's no secret that global competition has shuttered many domestic textile businesses. We see the joining of vParadox with the business resources of the incubator and the intellectual capacity of York College as having the potential to reinvent the industry in York and beyond."
