A $30-million expansion at Invista's fiber manufacturing plant in South Carolina will enable the company to rapidly respond to small-lot, carpet fiber demands, according to the company.
“Our mill customers and the design community rely on Invista to offer a palette of hundreds of solution-dyed nylon 6,6 colors for each of their unique design preferences,” said Marc Ahrens, vice president of the company's specialty flooring business. “The new technology will expand our capability to offer sophisticated color families while at the same time improving service.”
Invista developed this innovative, proprietary small-lot technology by working closely with equipment manufacturer, Truetzschler.
"We are pleased to be supplying Invista with the highest quality of BCF extrusion technology for this important expansion,” said Dr. Dirk Burger, CEO of the Truetzschler Group. “As a part of a long-term collaboration in research and development, our teams were challenged and inspired to create enhanced products. Truetzschler thanks Invista for their confidence in our company.”
