STF To Increase Nylon Manufacturing Capacity

Nylon 6,6 filament and yarn producer Sans Technical Fibers LLC (STF), Gastonia, N.C., will invest $10 million to increase production capacity at its Stoneville, N.C., plant by 8 million pounds annually. STF will use the additional capacity — which represents an increase of some 45 percent and is expected to come on line toward the end of 2013 — to grow its position in the automotive, military and apparel markets.

"This expansion is the first stage of a strategic initiative to install equipment that gives us world-class manufacturing economics," said Zach Zacharias, president, STF. "Our long-term sourcing partnership with Ascend Performance Materials Inc., a quality nylon 6,6 chip producer, ensures that we are well positioned to thrive in a future competitive environment. The new technology fits well into our existing infrastructure and has resulted in good investment metrics. The new capabilities will allow STF to enter additional markets currently not served in both North America and globally."
