Xeros Technologies is the world leader helping companies to address their manufacturing water and effluent management challenges.  Xeros is the only company using ground-breaking technology to significantly reduce water in the textile production process, a resource that is quickly becoming scarce, on a global scale. Our innovative, patent-protected technology significantly reduces water and chemistry in the dye and dye-wash process, which also reduces the resulting effluent, allowing a significant commercial advantage. Xeros technology works with a manufacturer’s existing chemical recipe but is simply more effective at delivering the chemicals into the textile.  

Xeros seeks an experienced Project Manager to join the team to help introduce their technology to textile and denim manufacturers, initially with a focus on the Asian and European market.
