The article reports that Quaker Fabric Corp. will launch two new programs, both using off-shore fabric production for the first time, this summer. According to Larry Liebenow, president and CEO, the introductions are velvets and flat-woven and linen/cotton blends. In its quarterly financial report issued April 20, Liebenow said the company "would further expand the residential business by distributing certain imported fabrics." At the time, he also pointed to an expansion of its new sueded products for the residential market "to compete with the faux suede products coming into the U.S."
