Unifi Teams With Palmetto, Expands Yadkinville Capacity

Unifi Inc., Greensboro, N.C., and Palmetto Synthetics LLC, Kingstree, S.C., have signed a manufacturing and distribution agreement under which Palmetto Synthetics will purchase Unifi's REPREVE® chip and process it into staple fiber to be sold under the Repreve name. Repreve products produced by Palmetto will be available as either natural or solution-dyed polyester staple fiber, and will be compliant with both the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and the Berry Amendment.

Palmetto Synthetics will discontinue production of its NatureSpun® recycled fiber and replace it with Repreve recycled fiber production.

In other news, Unifi has purchased nine draw textured yarn (DTY) machines and a sample machine for its Yadkinville, N.C., polyester yarn twisting and beaming operations in order to increase production capacity for value-added products in the regional market. The company reports that synthetic apparel supply in the United States, NAFTA and Central America-Dominican Republic Free Trade Agreement regions has steadily increased since 2009, especially as brands and retailers continue their commitment to regional sourcing.
