A PERSPECTIVE FREE OF ACCEPTED BARRIERS. A PARTNERSHIP UNLIKE ANY THE INDUSTRY’S EVER SEEN.

There are challenges well beyond comfort that have plagued FR apparel for years. Tackling those conventions took a fresh perspective that we call "iQ Thinking." A perspective rooted in curiosity, ingenuity and persistence. And that’s enabling Bulwark and Milliken to rewrite FR’s future.

Why The Partnership Works

iQ Series® garments are a blend: of Bulwark’s industry-leading insight and Milliken’s world-renowned culture of unbridled innovation. Chris DeSoiza, Milliken’s VP of Research, explains.

Where iQ Goes Next

For decades, FR brands have been tweaking the same tired technologies to meet the same age-old demands. According to Bulwark’s Stan Jewell, that thinking stops here. Thanks to iQ.

A Fresh FR Perspective

Robert Grimes, Bulwark’s Managing Director, describes how iQ Thinking is allowing Bulwark and Milliken to break FR from the box it’s been forced to innovate within for 50 years.

Writing FR's Future

Bulwark and Milliken are on an inspired mission to raise FR’s “Innovation Quotient” with a new era of better, smarter protective apparel. As Bulwark sees it, that effort starts by taking a fresh perspective.
