Winner Medical Wins the Circular Economy Project Award

Mar 23, 2011, 06:11 ET from Winner Medical Group Inc.

SHENZHEN, China, March 23, 2011 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- Winner Medical Group Inc. (Nasdaq: WWIN), ("Winner Medical"), a leading manufacturer of medical dressings, medical disposables and non-woven fabric made from 100% natural PurCotton® products in China, proudly announced today that its wholly owned subsidiary, Winner Industries (Shenzhen) Co., Ltd., was the only medical device manufacturing company to win the Circular Economy Project Award for the year 2010. Winner Medical won the award for its invention of the patented 100% cotton spunlace nonwoven technology, which forms raw cotton into nonwoven cotton fabric to produce PurCotton® products. Winners of this award are selected annually by the Shenzhen Enterprises' New Records Reviewing Committee (under the guidance of the China Enterprises' New Records Reviewing Committee) at the yearly Shenzhen Enterprise New Record Meeting.

Winner Medical believes that the 100% cotton spunlace non-woven fabric technology that it invented has the potential to be of far-reaching and great impact to the textile industry. This cotton processing technology shortens the production cycle from over two months to less than 10 days and significantly reduces the energy consumption, pollution and emission of carbon. This eco-friendly technology features a computer-aided automatic process, the use of cotton as the raw material and the integration of the production process into the coiling and refining process. In contrast to Winner Medical's spunlace non-woven fabric technology, traditional technology has a long production chain involving a cumbersome process and a significant expenditure of labor. Also, the textile product manufactured by traditional technology may contain fluorescence material and other impurities that affect the quality of the product.

The winning of this award shows that Winner Medical employs an environmental friendly and innovation culture, and is acting in concert with the government of the People Republic of China's 'low carbon economy' and 'energy efficiency policy'.
