Gene Demestre is planning on shaking up sales at Twitchell
After selling his company, he went on to work for a number of companies in the interior shading industry, all the while achieving impressive feats like owning three of his own patents.
His impressive work history speaks for itself. Gene not only owned Vimco for 19 years, but he also established Alkenz Fabrics in 2011, served as the VP of Sales and Marketing for QMotion, and was the VP of Business Development for Legrand Shading until 2018. Now, as the new VP of Sales for Solar Protection, Gene says he is most excited for “the numerous opportunities that exist to drive our products into different channels."

Twitchell Develops Revolutionary Fabric
New Textilene® Nano 95 Fabric Lighter and Finer Than Original
TwitchellTM announces the release of a brand new line of screening fabric, Textilene® Nano 95. Textilene® Nano 95 is lighter and finer than the original Textilene® 95 fabric, all while maintaining the same technical properties.
Textilene® Nano 95 is excellent for a variety of uses and can reduce energy costs all while blocking up to 95 percent of the sun’s harmful rays. It is 20 percent thinner and has over 15 percent less elongation than competitive fabrics. Textilene® Nano 95 is available in 96 inch and 120 inch widths and is produced in 10 unique colors including Black, White, Espresso, Bone, Shadow, Charcoal, Granite Tobacco, Sable and Stone.
Twitchell’s Textilene is an excellent addition to any space, even those you wouldn’t think of at first. Britten Graphics just completed their first project using the Facid North America System. They used the system to cover the JP Morgan Chase employee parking garage in Plano, Texas with a Twitchell Textilene 90 mesh 120” in the color ‘Desert Sand’.
The choice to use Twitchell’s Textilene for the parking garage covering was easy, because when they compared other alternatives to Twitchell, no one compared. The thickness, overall structural integrity, and strength of the material was a winner, right from the start. The material was relatively easy to install, due to its plyable makeup, and has served its purpose well since the install.
JP Morgan Chase wanted to cover the side of the parking garage that faces their offices across the street, so they wouldn’t be forced to have a view of an open parking garage. Now, their view is improved and sure to last with Twitchell’s Textilene mesh.
