One of the largest yarn spinners in the US Frontier Spinning Mills is planning to invest a sum of $6 million in its plant situated in Elmore County, Alabama. The company will add new fibre preparation, open-end spinning equipment and warehouse space in the plant. The expansion of the plant will create in 18 new jobs in the facility that boasts a workforce of 120.

The expansion project at the Alabama plant is likely to be completed by Frontier Spinning Mills by August 1. The plant makes use of polyester and cotton fibres in an open-end spinning process to manufacture yarn without spindles.

Frontier's investment in the plant will help enhance its productivity, said Alabama state media reports quoting Greg Canfield, secretary of the Alabama department of commerce.

Starting with one open-end spinning facility in Sanford, the company, since its inception, has grown into one of the largest producers of 100 per cent cotton and cotton-blend yarns in the world. Frontier operates state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities in multiple states and employs over 1,100 people. (KD)
