Leigh Fibers Expands Plant

In response to growing demand for its products and services, Leigh Fibers Inc., Wellford, S.C., will invest $10.1 million to expand its manufacturing plant and add 40 employees to its workforce over the next five years. Plans include investment in new equipment that will enable the company to add to its product line, which includes fibers made from reprocessed textile waste. Markets served include automotive, construction, erosion control, home furnishings, nonwovens and traditional textiles.

"Our plans to invest in the Wellford facility will not only promote job growth, but will also have a positive environmental impact on our county and state by minimizing waste going to landfills," said Keith Taylor, president, Leigh Fibers. "We believe these investments will foster an entrance into a Green Economy less impacted by foreign imports and support the manufacturing base within the state."
