DyStar Consolidates Dye Manufacturing Facilities
Germany-based DyStar LP is to close its Mt. Holly, N.C., production facility later this year.
DyStar manufactures textile dyes used for apparel, home furnishings, carpet and other textiles at
this site, which employs 24 people.Uwe Halder, president and CEO, stated that the shutdown is in
response to the weakening business conditions within the U.S. textile market. The products
currently produced at this facility will be transferred to a second site in Coventry, R.I., or will
be imported from other DyStar units.
