CARMEL, Ind., April 28, 2021 – TVF, a leading supplier of high-quality fabric, announced today that long time industry veteran Michael Sanders will be moving on to the next chapter in his career.

On July 1st, Michael Sanders will be moving on from TVF to pursue personal interests and other business opportunities in the digital print industry, an area in which he is so passionate. Mike has had a long and storied career in the textiles and printing industries, starting in 1973 with Cal-Pacific Dyeing, Finishing & Printing, and later founding Pacific Coast Fabrics (PCF) in 1995 with co-founder, Brian Vieweg. Mike and Brian proceeded to build PCF into one of the most respected, innovative suppliers of fabrics for digital printing in the world.

After successfully growing PCF for 22 years, Brian and Mike decided to sell Pacific Coast Fabrics to TVF in June 2017 and join TVF along with their employees to continue doing what they love. As part of the sale, Mike agreed to stay on for four years until the end of the contract. “Selling to TVF was a great decision and I’ve loved working with the entire TVF team. I’m really looking forward to doing some consulting in the industry, and generally enjoying life, catching more waves, and spending time with my family,” said Mike. “We are so fortunate that Mike and Brian decided TVF was a good home for PCF. Mike has been a pleasure to work with and I so appreciate everything he has done during his time at TVF. I’m also excited that Brian is continuing his career with TVF for the long-term, continuing the legacy that he and Mike created as innovators and leaders in the digital textile market,” said TVF CEO, Chris Fredericks.
