INVISTA plans to expand its Camden production facility

INVISTA’s Performance Surfaces & Materials business is further optimizing its production capacity with a $20 million investment across its North American manufacturing facilities. This investment will allow the company to better focus its capabilities on the markets it serves, increasing speed-to-market of new innovations. 

INVISTA’s Surfaces business, which serves the residential and commercial carpet markets, will significantly increase production at its Camden, South Carolina, facility, where the majority of the newly announced investment is being made.  It also plans to enhance its overall flexibility and make improvements to better service its customers.  For instance, plans are underway to double the volume of Antron Lumena solution dyed nylon with TruBlend fiber technology and produce a new line of 895 denier Antron Lumena solution dyed nylon products for the commercial business. Antron Lumena solution dyed nylon with TruBlend fiber technology contains a total of 30 percent pre-consumer and post-consumer recycled content.  In addition, INVISTA plans to enhance its color capabilities on those assets. 

This investment comes on the heels of significant capital projects recently installed at INVISTA’s Kingston, Ontario, facility for its industrial yarn R&D and manufacturing capabilities; all of which are geared toward enhancing customer focus and creating additional customer value via its two largest North American fiber manufacturing units. Given the increased capabilities for carpet fiber production at Camden and focus on industrial yarn development at Kingston, there will be a strategic reduction of carpet fiber production for INVISTA’s Surfaces business in Kingston during the coming years.
 
“INVISTA continues to forge ahead in efforts to provide differentiated product offerings to the market,” said David Duncan, president, INVISTA Performance Surfaces & Materials. “These investments reinforce our continued commitment to deliver value to our customers through innovative products and global brands that they recognize and trust.”
