The Washington, D.C.-based, $2 million-revenue National Council of Textile Organizations (NCTO) and the Arlington, Va.-based, $661K-revenue American Fiber Manufacturers Association (AFMA) have agreed to merge, effective April 1, the groups said in a statement.

“The NCTO merger with AFMA strengthens the U.S. textile industry’s ability to influence federal policy,” said NCTO Chairman Bill McCrary. “It brings new members and financial resources to NCTO and extends the organization’s political reach.

“It also cements NCTO’s status as the voice of every facet of the U.S. textile production chain, a fact that will help NCTO to more effectively influence federal policies that affect U.S. textile investment, production and workers,” he said.

The merged organization will retain the name National Council of Textile Organizations, and NCTO President and CEO Auggie Tantillo will lead the combined groups.
