TenCate in government circles

Through road shows and presentations, TenCate informs interested parties about its vision, mission, products and value proposition. The companies in the United States are supported by the TenCate Office of Public and Government Affairs in Washington D.C.
The markets in which TenCate operates are often regulated by government authorities or (government) bodies on the basis of legislation and regulations. The anticipated fall in the American government budgets in particular may have consequences for the sale in the U.S. of ballistic materials, protective fabrics and geosynthetics.

TenCate has an office (Public and Government Affairs) in the capital, which functions as a branding and marketing platform for all the TenCate companies in the United States. This Office of Public and Government Affairs works to support the federal efforts of each business group of TenCate, serving as a force multiplier to strengthen the bonds between the corporation and important U.S. government officeholders and departments.
