GREENSBORO – US yarn producer Unifi has confirmed to Ecotextile News that it anticipates expanding capacity for its recycled polyester brand Repreve in 2016 in the US and Central America as part of its ambitious growth plans for the region. The company recently announced that it is increasing polyester texturing capacity in the US and Central America to support growing demand for synthetic yarn in the NAFTA and CAFTA regions. The expansion involves adding texturing machines in Yadkinville and Madison, N.C., and El Salvador, to support growth in the company's premier value-added product lines. Installation of the new machinery is expected to be complete by June 2015.
