US Fibers To Expand Trenton Plant, Add 48 Jobs

US Fibers, Laurens, S.C., a recycler of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) material and a division of Pac Tell Group Inc., will expand its Trenton, S.C., manufacturing plant and expects to add 48 jobs. The $5.5 million project includes the addition of a staple fiber extrusion line and necessary processing equipment, which will help the company broaden its product range.

US Fibers reports it was one of the first U.S. companies to recycle all forms of PET material and convert it into high-quality, regenerated staple fiber, diverting more than 250 million pounds of waste from landfills. In 2010, the company increased polyester recycling capacity at the Trenton plant, and today supplies recycled material to the nonwovens, automotive, filtration, construction, packaging, home furnishings and other markets.
