Hong Kong Mill Licenses Cotton Incorporated's EFS® System

Central Textiles (Hong Kong) Ltd. has become the first textile mill in Hong Kong and China to license and implement the Engineered Fiber Selection® (EFS®) Cotton Fiber Management System, a suite of software developed by Cotton Incorporated, Cary, N.C., to facilitate production of high-quality cotton yarn.

Central Textiles operates one 57,000-square-meter spinning mill in Guangdong province and is set to open a second mill. The family-owned company currently purchases 250,000 bales of US cotton annually and employs 1,500 people.

EFS software enables users to access and use High Volume Instrument (HVI) data provided by the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) for each bale of US-produced cotton, which is the only cotton that is evaluated for its key properties and labeled with USDA HVI data.
