In November, TenCate Protective Fabrics in Union City (Georgia, US) was honoured by the visit of three prominent guests. They were Renée Jones-Bos, the Netherlands ambassador to the United States, consul-general Simone Filippini and her senior commercial officer Barbara Staals. This formed part of a working visit by the ambassador to the state of Georgia aimed at further advancing the strong economic and cultural ties between the Netherlands and this southern state.
