LaFrance Industries is introducing an expanded collection of eco-friendly motorcoach seating fabrics at the United Motorcoach Association's 2009 Expo.

The LaFrance Ritz Repreve is the only independently certified, eco-friendly motorcoach seating fabric available to the North American motorcoach industry. LaFrance supports energy and resource conservation and sustainability by using Repreve recycled yarns in an energy-efficient system.

The Repreve fabrics are specifically developed for use in the motorcoach and bus interiors and are engineered to meet the demands of the transportation market.

The Repreve story will be featured on the Discovery Channel in January 2009. Additional information about the product can be found at www.repreve.com.

La France also offers a line of motorcoach fabrics that fully comply with Docket 90, FAR 25.853 Flammability and ASTM E662 Smoke Emission at no additional cost to motorcoach seat suppliers and coach builders.
