Nonwovens and FR supplier Precision Textiles will begin production at a new plant Sept. 1 in Troy, North Carolina. The 160,000-square-foot facility is to employ 100 and will increase the company’s needle-punch nonwovens production and add warehouse space.
“Demand for these products has risen to the point where we are near full capacity at our home facility in New Jersey,” said Scott Tesser, chief executive officer of the Totowa, New Jersey-based company. “In addition to keeping pace with current demand, this investment positions us for future growth as we continue to expand our customer base in the bedding and automotive industries.”
“This new factory will enable us to better meet the needs of our customers throughout the nation and logistically helps us reduce transit time to those located across the Southeast,” he said. “It will also give us more capacity to better serve both existing and new customers. The plant previously had a nice history in textiles manufacturing, so it provided us with a head start in terms of equipment and experienced employees.”
The company also has updated its website, PrecisionTextiles-USA.com, to better reflect the company’s position as a global supplier of cutting-edge nonwoven and laminated solutions, as well as fire-retardant technology for a variety of industries, Tesser said. “Our new site showcases not only our products but also our capabilities, positioning us as a trusted partner that offers innovative products and services as well as experts in our field with the ability to engineer custom-made turnkey solutions.”
