Foss Partners With Fisipe, Opens Charlotte Office

Foss Manufacturing Co., Hampton, N.H., now is serving as the exclusive representative in the United States and Canada for Portugal-based acrylic manufacturer Fisipe Synthetic Fibers. As a result, Foss now offers both dyed and undyed acrylic fiber solutions in addition to its own line of specialty polyester fibers.

Jeff Dellinger, managing director of Fosss Performance Fibers Unit, views the partnership as a win-win situation for both companies and for Fosss US and Canadian customers. "The acrylic fibers produced by Fisipe complement our product line of polyesters, allowing Foss to bring an additional source of raw material to customers in North America," he said.

In other news, Foss has established a Southeast regional office in Charlotte. Dellinger is in charge of the new office.

"Foss's ongoing development of performance fibers is particularly attractive to fabric, specialty apparel and furniture makers," Dellinger said. "Our new office location puts our fibers sales team in the epicenter of the textile and furniture market in the United States, and in a better position to serve our clients in a personalized way."
