RadiciSpandex Ups Capacity At Tuscaloosa Plant

Celebrating 10 years since the groundbreaking ceremony, RadiciSpandex Corp., Fall River, R.I., is to expand production at its Tuscaloosa, Ala., spinning plant the fifth expansion since the facility opened. The additional capacity will increase production by up to 20 percent, enabling the facility to manufacture more than 7,000 tons of spandex fiber per year.

"Our Tuscaloosa operation has proven that a US fiber manufacturing plant can compete in the global market", said Rob Rebello, CEO. "Today, we face the necessity to further expand our capacity as a result of the continued high demand for our products."

RadiciSpandex also has introduced a new line of heavy-denier spandex products made at its Gastonia, N.C., facility for narrow elastic, baby diaper, hosiery and industrial applications.
