Highly Protected Risk Award for TenCate companies USA

In the autumn of 2012, companies of TenCate Protective Fabrics and TenCate Advanced Composites in the USA received the Highly Protected Risk Award from FM Global.
Just like TenCate Geosynthetics companies did in Cornelia and Jefferson last year, they have done everything to comply with the advice and recommendations of FM Global. The companies are now even better protected from fire, explosions, tornados and other risks inherent in nature and human activity. They meet all the highly protected risk (HPR) directives for damage prevention issued by FM Global worldwide.
