FiberVisions will celebrate 50 years of its plant in Covington, in October this year. This facility began life as part of the Hercules Powder, an entity acquired by DuPont in 1880s, and spun off again in 1912. Originally a manufacturer of cotton nitrocellulose, Hercules transitioned into the manufacture of polypropylene and polyester fibres in 1960s.

FiberVisions is the global leader in developing, manufacturing, and marketing specialised bicomponent and performance polyolefin fibres for hygiene, filtration, automotive, geotextiles, textiles, and apparel.

Over the past 50 years, the FiberVisions Covington facility has employed thousands of people and seen a number of expansions and upgrades. The facility currently employs 230 people and has capacity to produce 180 million pounds of olefin-based fibres per year.

"The manufacture of synthetic fibers has a long and proud history in the United States, particularly in the Southeast. Companies such as FiberVisions and our Covington plant continue to thrive in today’s global marketplace through innovative technology, cutting-edge manufacturing facilities, superior customer service, and a dedicated team of employees," said Tom Zaiser, FiberVisions chief executive officer.

"I have been with FiberVisions for over twenty years and have always been impressed by the people I have worked with at all levels of the organisation. We are all committed to delighting our customers. All team members know they play a key role in our overall success and we work hard to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to contribute their ideas as well as their specific skills," Covington site manager Scott Powell said.
