Spectrum Elca Form Honduras Joint Venture

Spectrum Dyed Yarns Inc., New York City, has joined with Elasticos CentroAmericanos S.A. de C.V. (Elca), Honduras, to form Spectrum Central America S.A. de C.V. The new yarn-dyeing facility is one of the first investments by a U.S.-based textile company in the Caribbean Basin. It will provide dyed cotton, polyester/cotton, filament polyester, spun polyester and nylon yarns to companies located in Latin America, Central America and the Caribbean.With the combined technical expertise and market knowledge of Spectrum and Elca, yarn dyed product will now become a sourcing reality from vendors located in the area, said Doug Blanchard, president, Spectrum; and Juan M. Canahuati, president, Elca; in a joint announcement. The market has been anxious for this to happen.The new facility is scheduled to begin operations in the third quarter 2002.
