Parvez Mehta, Indian born wool expert to be feted

Parvez Mehta , a well known wool textile expert with nearly five decades of experience in the development of wool products and processes, is being honoured by the American Wool Council with the ‘Wool Excellence Award’. He has worked with the US wool textile industry in developing wool products like fire retardant wool products and in devising enzyme treatments on wool.

A degree holder in physics, chemistry and mathematics, Mehta joined the premier wool research and development unit of the International Wool Secretariat in 1967. Over a 16-year period at IWS, Mehta authored three books, seven patents and over 50 articles in technical journals. Mehta was president of Glenmoor Consultants, which involved work for three staple mills in the US. In that position he developed and introduced wool in a range of blended products.

Mehta has devoted his life to wool and made many contributions. Through his vast experience in wool, and commitment to wool, the US industry has realized many benefits. For two decades he has served as the go-to person relative to wool science and new product developments.

The Wool Excellence Award is sponsored by the Wool Roundtable, which includes representatives from various segments of the wool trade, such as wool research, buying, production, warehousing, processing and fabric manufacturing.
